Custom Mowing Tips
Custom mowing the lawn isn’t just a chore, done properly it can help your lawn and the environment. There are three factors that are critical to proper mowing.
Sharp mower blade
This is one area that is very easy to overlook. Try to develop a habit of sharpening your mower blade at least twice each year, once in early spring and again in late summer. A sharp blade makes a clean cut leaving less tissue exposed, reducing water loss stress and disease concerns. A dull blade not only causes significant health concerns for your lawn, but can also cause discoloration.
The simple rule to remember is the 1/3 rule. Mowing should be done often enough to prevent the removal of more than 1/3 of the leaf at any one time. This will help lower the level of stress on the root system. Removal of more than 1/3 of the leaf too often or under periods of heavy stress can result in turf loss. This frequency will vary during the year, but once a week is usually often enough even during periods of heavy growth.
Mowing heights vary for different types of turf. See below for your turf type and mowing height.
