Proper mowing is essential to develop a high quality lawn! It is one of the most important steps in your lawn maintenance program. A properly mowed lawn has fewer weeds, better moisture, and is more stress tolerant, than a poorly mowed lawn. Most lawn care experts agree that the majority of lawn care problems are a result of not mowing at the proper heights and not keeping mower blades sharpened.
Mowing height is the most important aspect of mowing. Here at L.C.S. we regulate our mowing heights based on the time of the year and weather conditions. A lawn that is mowed too short will cause a shallow root system and in turn thins out the lawn. This also causes more weed growth throughout the lawn. In general, the higher you let your lawn grow, the deeper the roots develop. This helps to provide shade during the hot summer months. The more grass blades that are exposed to sunlight the better photosynthesis your grass will have, in turn the healthier grass you will have.

What does proper mowing do for my lawn?

  1. 1. What Does Proper Mowing do for My Lawn? Proper mowing is essential to develop a high quality lawn! It is one of the most important steps in your lawn maintenance program. A properly mowed lawn has fewer weeds, better moisture, and is more stress tolerant, than a poorly mowed lawn. Most lawn care experts agree that the majority of lawn care problems are a result of not mowing at the proper heights and not keeping mower blades sharpened. Mowing height is the most important aspect of mowing. Here at L.C.S. we regulate our mowing heights based on the time of the year and weather conditions. A lawn that is mowed too short will cause a shallow root system and in turn thins out the lawn. This also causes more weed growth throughout the lawn. In general, the higher you let your lawn grow, the deeper the roots develop. This helps to provide shade during the hot summer months. The more grass blades that are exposed to sunlight the better photosynthesis your grass will have, in turn the healthier grass you will have. Another aspect of properly mowing your lawn is the amount of grass you cut off at a mowing. Never mow more than 1/3 of your plant at any given mowing. Mowing more than 1/3 of the plant will encourage the roots to come to the surface for more moisture, drying out the roots and the plants will start to die off. The longer your grass is the deeper your roots grow into the soil. Leaving the blades longer strengthens plants, retains moisture, keeps the lawn green and over all provides a thicker, healthier turf.
