Five Mowing Tips for the Perfect Lawn
Landscape Tips

Proper mowing is an important step to keeping your lawn healthy and promoting proper grass growth. Blade Landscape Designs brings their years of lawn care experience and offers five tips for mowing the perfect lawn. 

Tip 1: Stick to the 1/3 rule

Follow the 1/3 rule to reduce the risk of soil compaction and nutrient loss. The 1/3 rule means never removing more than one third of the grass stem when moving. Too long and you won’t cut the lawn properly and too short and you will damage the grass. 

For optimal results, consult your turf supplier and find the best mower height for your particular turf.  

Tip 2: Mow at least once a fortnight during summer, and once every three to four weeks in winter

Grass grows fastest in warmer months and you will need to be more frequent in mowing. Each variety grows at different speeds and this should be used only as a guide. Avoid mowing after summer storms when grass is clumped which will lead to a patchy cut. 

Tip 3: Vary the moving direction when you mow

When you mow your grass in the same direction it can easily lead to a tendency for the grass to lean in the direction you mow. Changing your mowing pattern helps your grass to grow upright and also avoids ruts in your soil. 

Tip 4: Sharpen your mower blades

Ragged cuts increase the chance of disease and pests so make sure your blades are sharp enough to make a clear-cut.

Tip 5: Leave your clippings on the lawn except when weeds are present 

Small clippings can feed your lawn when they decompose and release nutrients. Mow regularly to avoid covering your lawn with excess clippings and choking. 

Good luck on creating your backyard MCG from the team at Blade Landscape Designs.
