Lawn Mowing Tips for First-Time Homeowners
To keep your lawn looking fantastic, you should mow it at least once every three weeks. In the summer, you quickly run the danger of neglecting your grass without consistent mowing. During the summer, you should aim to mow your lawn once a week.
Heavy rains may cause the grass to suffocate, resulting in spotty growth. You should go a few days without mowing and let the grass grow and absorb the rain before cutting it again. Cutting soggy grass is a pain.
Tip: Wait at least 24 hours after fertilizing your grass before mowing it. This will guarantee that all of the fertilizer has been absorbed and that nothing attaches to the mower blades.
Anyone who has spent time outside in the CSRA summer heat knows how humid it can be. Your grass will not like working in the heat, and it has to expend significant energy to repair itself. Mow your grass in the mid-morning, when the morning dew has dried but the temperatures and humidity are still lower. During the hot afternoon, allow your grass to soak up the light and relax.
When mowing your grass, choose a direction. This may be diagonal, side-to-side, front-to-back, or a mix of these. By mowing in a consistent pattern, you may make nice, straight lines, and simplify the mowing process. However, don’t limit yourself to one pattern. The next time you mow your lawn, try a different pattern. If you made vertical lines last time, for example, you may choose to mow in horizontal lines during your next mow.
