Tips for health lawn mowing


Lawn mowing seems easy, but each mowing will pave the way for your lawn to succeed or fail. Trim correctly, you will modify the healthy, drought-resistant, thick enough to squeeze out weed turf. Improper mowing will make your lawn difficult to survive. Time to mow, so each time you cut, you will never remove more than 1/3 of the total blade area with each cutting.

Avoid cut lawn too short

Avoid turf cutting, which cut too short. Peeled lawns are susceptible to disease and weeds. Peeled turf tends to be fragile, sparse, and exposed to the soil. One of reasons to weed success is exposed soil, allowing weed seeds to take root. Sparse lawns also allow sunlight cast shine on weed seedlings and make them grow. The underdevelopment of the root system of the grass, which has been cut too short, makes the lawn more vulnerable to drought or high temperature. The grass that cutting too short will make underdevelopment of the root system, which makes the lawn more vulnerable to drought or high temperature.

Sharpening lawn mower blade

Keep the lawn mower blade sharp so that the best results can be achieved each time.

Sharp blades cut grass cleanly, while obtuse blades tear grass to form serrated, uneven edges. These tears create openings for pests and diseases into grass. As the tip of a single blade recedes, the lawn cut with a blunt blade presents a white or brown hue. Grind mower blades at least several times during the mowing season. Avoid cutting grass on thick branches or stones to reduce blade passivation or damage. Recommend buying extra lawn mower blades so you can always have sharp blades for spare.

Adjust mower height

Adjust the mower height on all the growing season. For example, the cutting table will be moved higher in summer to allow the grass grow longer. Higher grass helps to shield the soil, prevent from weeds growing and slow evaporation of water from the soil. Higher grass also develops deeper roots, creating drought-resistant lawns better. In late autumn, in areas where snow-covered in winter, lower the deck to prevent snow mildew on the grass in the last season of mowing.

Lawns growing in dark areas benefit from higher mowing heights. Longer grass leaves have a larger surface area for conduct photosynthesis. In the absence of light, this is a great benefit, but also the secret of growing healthy lawns in the shade.

Ideally, mow when the grass is dry. Mowing the wet lawn does not hurt the grass, but it does not produce the best results. Fill and clog the mower deck with wet grass. When you mow the grass, it also has the tendency to fall and caking, creating in uneven interface. Notice the wet clumps that falling from the mower. Remove it from the lawn to avoid hurt the grass. Always avoid mowing in wet soil, or it risk cause rut and tear the lawn. If you have to mow the lawn in wet places, spray the bottom of the mower with oil or silica gel to prevent the grass from sticking. In addition, make sure your lawn mower blades are sharp to avoid tear up grass from the soil.

Mowing in shade time

Pruning plants will cause stress. Grass is no exception. Mowing bring big pressure on grass plants. If you mow the grass on the most heat of the day, the individual grass plants will reduce more water and recover more slowly than if you mow in the colder of the day. Another option is to wait until under the shade of the tree. Grass under the shade when cut and rebounds faster.

The edge roller

Creates a line edge along the lawn close the driveway, footway, and planting area. When mowing, roll the wheel of the lawn mower on this edge and you will never afraid trim the edges. Use any amount of material to create edges, including bricks, gravel, concrete paver or tightly packed limestone, such as crushers.


This is called a lawn when it falls on the lawn after cutting. It can not only save you time (no longer packaging clippings), but also save money (no longer garbage bags or expenses). Grass shavings can provide up to 25% of lawn fertilizer demand, so you can also save some dough fertilizer. You don’t need a special covering mower, but you might want to replace your current mower blade with a covered blade so that you can cut the grass into smaller pieces and break it down quickly. You can grass-recycling with minimum cost. To avoid spraying grass debris during mowing, purchase an adapter kit for the mower, which provides plugs to fill holes that are normally cut from the lawn mower deck exit. Look for general purpose kits online or from stores selling mowers.
