Mow Weekly For A Healthier Lawn

Posted on April 22, 2015

Green lawn with proper turf height for summerGet the best return on your lawn care investment: mow weekly and stick to the suggested watering schedule for your area.

Weekly ‘long’ mowing stimulates healthy grass growth and can snuff out weeds. Mowing ‘long’ means you remove no more than 1/3 of the leaf’s blade. Cutting the grass too short will kill the tips causing stress to the overall lawn. In the hot summer months, the longer grass blade will protect the roots from heat damage.

What Type of Grass Do You Have?

Different grasses grow to different heights. Find out what kind of grass grows in your lawn so you know the mature length of the grass. Mowing the grass at a longer length on a weekly basis is ideal for most grasses.

A Smarter Way to Mow

The job will actually go faster when you mow weekly. This is because the grass is already at a good height. Waiting two or more weeks means your mower blade will be bogged down in some areas. This will dull your lawn mower blade and damage the grass. This also puts stress on your mower’s engine.

If you hire someone to mow your lawn, talk to them about setting up a weekly schedule. In most cases, they will give a discount if you sign up for more frequent mowings.

Raise the deck on your mower and never cut more than 1/3 of the grass blade.
