Mow Smarter, Not Harder!
Wondering how often you should mow your lawn? We’ve got your back, fellow lawn lovers!
One common mistake is overdoing it, which can stress your grass and leave you feeling like you’re in a never-ending mowing marathon.
The secret? Aim for about once a week during the growing season, but adjust based on your grass type and weather conditions. Your lush, green reward?
A healthy lawn that’s the envy of the neighborhood!
The Goldilocks Height How high should you cut your grass, you ask?
Well, there’s a sweet spot! Avoid the extreme buzz cut, but also don’t let your lawn go wild.
Set your mower height to around 2.5-3 inches, and you’ll strike the perfect balance.
Your grass will thank you by staying strong, vibrant, and better able to fend off weeds.
H2: The 1/3 Rule
Here’s the golden rule for mowing: never trim more than one-third of the grass height in a single mow.
This approach might mean you mow a bit more often, but it’s like a workout routine for your lawn. Your reward? Thick, healthy grass that feels like a lush carpet under your feet.
H2: The Cool-Season vs. Warm-Season
Showdown Different grass types have different preferences.
Cool-season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass prefer a higher cut, while warm-season grasses like Bermuda prefer it shorter.
Knowing your grass type can make a world of difference in how often you should mow and at what height.
