15 Apr Easy Mowing Tips for Improving Your Lawn
Mowing is one of the most important things you can do to look after your instant turf. As with anything, to ensure you get the best results, you have to invest your time and effort.
Here are some easy mowing tips you can follow for a greener, healthier and more luscious lawn.
Use the right lawn mower
Before mowing, make sure you have the right tool for it. Because different lawns have different requirements, using the right lawn mower for your lawn is critical. As simple as it sounds, with the right mower, you get the best results. As an example, a smaller lawn can benefit from a simple reel lawn mower which generates less noise, is easier to use than gas mowers and requires less maintenance.
Give your lawn mower proper maintenance
For your lawn mower to consistently yield great results, it should be maintained. A well-maintained lawn mower can mow quicker and more effectively. Keep the blade sharp and its moving parts well oiled. This is because mowing with dull blades can damage your lawn as much as not mowing at all.
Set the correct wheel height
Depending on the grass type you have, your lawn may have different height requirements. The optimal height for warm-season grasses is around 60mm and around 80mm for cool-season grasses. If you’re unsure, the general rule of thumb is to not cut more than a third of the total height of the grass blade. Consult with your suppliers to confirm the appropriate mowing height for your lawn.
Clear your lawn before mowing
To make sure you mow safely, clear the lawn of debris like branches, stones and other such objects. This will prevent them from accidentally getting stuck in your lawnmower, ultimately avoiding damage to you, your lawnmower and the lawn.
