Mow, Mow, Mow

Did you know that good lawn mowing practices can improve the look of your lawn? Here are a few tips: 

  1. Mowing should be always on the highest setting, so that you are not removing more than one-third of the blade at a time. The mower blade should be kept sharp so it isn’t tearing the blade. If you have brown tips where the grass was cut, you probably need to sharpen your blade or replace it.

  2. Leave your clippings lay when you mow, they return nitrogen to the soil and you can cut back on fertilizer.

  3. Mow early or late in the day, not in the heat which causes more stress to the plants. You should mow and water when the temperatures are coolest.
