Five ways to do effective lawn mowing at home

by | January 18, 2023

Lawn mowing is an essential part of grounds care for any homeowner. Not only does a well-manicured lawn look great, but it also helps to keep your grass healthy and prevent weeds from taking over. If you want to take control of your grounds care, here are five tips for effective lawn mowing at home: 

Use a sharp blade
A dull blade can damage your grass and make it more susceptible to diseases. Make sure to regularly sharpen or replace the blade on your lawn mower to ensure a clean, precise cut. 

Mow at the right height:
The proper mowing height depends on your grass type. In general, it’s best to leave the grass a little longer in the summer to help it retain moisture and prevent weeds. Aim for a mowing height of about 75mm [3 inches] during the growing season. 

Alternate the mowing pattern:  
Mowing in the same direction each time can cause ruts and uneven grass growth. Instead, try alternating your mowing direction each time to promote a healthy, even lawn. 

Remove clippings:  
While leaving the grass clippings on the lawn can be a natural way to fertilize your grass, it can also lead to excess thatch build-up. To prevent this, remove the clippings or use a mulching mower to finely chop them and return them to the lawn as a natural fertilizer.
