Tips and Tricks to Mowing Your Grass
With all the attractions that Indianapolis has to offer, you may be tempted to spend your time entertaining family and friends, rather than focusing on the endless task of maintaining your lawn and gardens. But you understand the importance of maintaining a beautiful home and lawn, so you put in the hard work. If you have envisioned achieving an impeccably manicured lawn, try these tricks and tips to get the lawn that will make all your neighbors jealous.
Be sure to keep your lawn equipment in good condition and sharpen your lawnmower blades.
When you cut the grass using dull blades, you are likely to tear the grass rather than giving it a clean cut. If you tear the grass out of the ground, it's more susceptible to disease and pest problems. You will also end up with an unevenly mowed lawn because the grass will be cut to varying heights instead of getting the evenly manicured turf that is your goal.
Make sure your grass isn't cut too short. It's a trick we've all tried to use, we cut our grass too short deliberately to stave off having to mow again so soon. The problem? When you cut your lawn too short, the grass gets scorched. Your grass needs to have enough length to retain moisture. Cut your grass too short, and you end up with a burnt and brown yard, something that none of us wants.
A good rule of thumb for cutting your grass is never to cut more than one-third of the grass height in a single session. Remember that your grass is a plant, and like all plants, it will become traumatized if it's pruned back too much. So what do you do if your grass is too long? Cut it by one-third today, and give it a few days to recover. Then, take a second pass over your yard to cut it to the desired length.
Don't stick to a lawn mowing schedule that's too automatic. It's better that you let your grass length and the weather conditions determine whether you need to mow. When it gets warmer, it will benefit you to let the grass stay a little longer, in the 2 to 2 ½ inch range. Your grass will thank you by staying greener in the hotter temperatures.
In turn, if there's a lot of rain and warm temperatures, you will have to mow frequently to maintain your yard's aesthetic appeal. As your grass starts to grow more dormant into the fall, it's better for you to let it rest between lawn mowing sessions rather than continue to cut it too frequently.
Take the time to edge around your lawn. It only takes a few additional minutes, but the results are a dramatically more polished result. You want to be sure to edge around the garden beds and walkways in your yard, and not just around the periphery.
People often question whether it's better to mulch the grass clippings or gather them in the grass catcher that's on your mower. It's your preference. Grass clippings need to be mulched to be short enough to remain in the lawn and not be unsightly. The easiest way to do that is to take a second pass over the clippings, and then they'll be sufficiently short. The cuttings can be recycled into the lawn, and they'll act as organic compost, nourishing the grass to grow.
