Mowing is an activity that really is an underrated activity because it can be relaxing, you'll get a workout from doing it, and it is something that you can do to make some extra money.
If you learn to build a great relationship with your mower, your lawn and your pocketbook will thank you for it.
But there is a right and a wrong way when it comes to mowing your yard. Keep these 3 tips in mind and your yard will look great.
1. Never Forget Lawn Mowers Can Be Dangerous
Most people laugh when they think about running over their foot with a mower. The idea of a lawn mowing injury seems almost an impossibility. The truth is that it's not. Use your head at all times and be careful when mowing. Wear shoes, move rocks and sticks out of the way rather than mowing over them.
2. Don't Overdo It
If you ever let your lawn grow to be several feet high, you might be tempted to just chop it down in one mowing. Don't do this. The rule is that you should be mowing one third of the height of the grass per lawn cut. If you cut more than this you can destroy your lawn.
So if your lawn is 3 feet long, you can cut one foot off in one cut. Then don't do any mowing for a few days while your lawn recovers before bringing it back out and mowing off another inch or so. If you mow your lawn too short, then make absolutely sure to give it lots of water. Then monitor it closely for weeds, which show up quickly in a scalped lawn.
3. Stick To Mowing When It's Dry
Spreading weeds and other such things happens more so when mowing your lawn and it's wet. Yes, you can still mow when it's wet but you can do a lot more damage. Therefore schedule your lawn mowing sessions for the late afternoon or evening, when your lawn has had lots of time to dry.
Stick to these 3 mowing tips and you're sure to have a great looking lawn. Mowing your lawn properly can, and does make a major difference.
