Periodic lawn cutting and maintenance is required to keep lawn nice and healthy. It can be done by yourself or by an handyman who has more professional tools. Normally, an experienced handyman can maintain the lawn more neat and efficient. Mowing is one of the most common practices performed in lawn care. A high quality lawn has fewer weeds, has greater stress tolerance against moisture and is better looking than those not properly cared for.
Lawn maintenance includes general lawn care, enabling the grass to remain in a state where it is able to stay healthy. A good leaf area is important for the photosynthesis process. Proper lawn care ensures that grass heights must not be so low, and the one-third rule may be followed as a guide – that is, do not cut more than one-third of the grass height when mowing. Lawn mowing service providers will be able to offer general advice on how to improve and maintain lawns including mowing direction.
All equipment used in lawn cutting and maintenance should be in good working condition. Regular service and repair maintenance prior to heavy mowing season will ensure smooth routine processes. Spring season is the best time to sharpen the mower blades. A poorly sharpened mower will cause discoloration to the grass tips which also indicates an unhealthy grass. It is also best to mow when grasses are dry since wet grass is harder to cut and may obstruct mower functions which will also cause damage to the machine.
