To keep your lawn looking its best year-round, weekly mowing is advised. Increasing the time between cuttings will result in more overgrowth and weeds, especially in the Spring and Summer months when your grass grows a lot faster. When mowing, make sure your lawn mover blades are always sharp and clean to prevent damage to the grass. Regular, weekly mowing will help your grass to grow thicker and prevent weed growth. It will also remove any brown or damaged grass tips and stimulate new, healthy growth. Here are some helpful tips for mowing lawn care questions:
- Don’t mow your lawn in the same direction every time you mow. This can compact the soil and cause grass to lean and grow in the direction it was mowed. By mowing in a different direction each time, you will help the grass grow more upright.
- If your lawn is long and overgrown, don’t try to mow it down all at once. This will put significant stress on your grass and create the potential for dead grass. Mow one-third of the grass height, let grass recover for three or four days, then mow again.
- Never mow your lawn when the grass is wet. Mowing wet grass causes an uneven cut that leaves a messy appearance. Wet grass clipping will also clog your lawn mower and cause more frequent mower maintenance.
Mowing your lawn creates stress on grass blades and roots, so your grass will need time to recover after each mowing. Although mowing height varies slightly with the seasons, there is a basic mowing rule – never remove more than one-third of the grass blade height with each mowing. When you mow your lawn too low, you open up the lawn’s canopy to more sun and heat. This can increase weed growth, especially during warm months since weeds need light to grow. Tall grass has more plant tissue, so it retains more moisture, produces more chlorophyll and shades the ground from direct sun. Keep your grass a little longer in warm weather and a little shorter in cool weather. For lawn care questions on proper mowing heights, talk to a GrassMasters lawn care professional.
Helpful Mowing Tip: Adjust the mower height up a notch on Memorial Day and again on July 4th. Adjust it down a notch on Labor Day, and again on Columbus Day.
The time of day you water your lawn can impact grass growth, weed growth and lawn diseases. For best lawn care results, remember these important watering tips:
- Avoid watering during the hottest part of the day, normally between 11 am and 3 pm
- Water in the morning between 6 am and 10 am, when there’s less sun, heat and wind
- If you can’t water in the morning, water in the late afternoon between 4 pm and 7 pm
- Avoid watering at night, as it invites mildew, fungal diseases and outdoor pests
The quick answer is yes! All lawns need proper nutrients to stay healthy, lush and green. It takes a lot of energy for your grass to develop strong, healthy roots and green growth. Most soils lack adequate nutrients, so proper fertilization is essential. There are six primary nutrients that plants require. They get the first three – carbon, hydrogen and oxygen – from air and water. They must get the other three – nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium – from the soil or applied fertilizers. Nitrogen helps plants produce new growth. Phosphorous stimulates root growth and seed size. Potassium improves overall plant vigor and health. Regular fertilization will stimulate grass growth and help your lawn fight environmental stresses like cold, heat, drought, lawn mowing and foot traffic. Your lawn care professional can answer lawn care questions about the best type of fertilizer for your grass type.
