A scalped lawn is when you cut it too short and that makes your lawn vulnerable to diseases and weed infestation. Exposed soil is a top contributor to weed success. If your grass is consistently cut too short, it will also make your lawn more susceptible to serious damage from drought or high temperatures.
Avoid damaging the grass blades by sharpening your mower blade, otherwise you will create openings for pests and diseases to enter it and kill it or make it look unhealthy. Avoid mowing over branches or very tall grass and sharpen your blade a few times during the peak season. Consider purchasing an extra mower blade, so that you always have a sharp blade at the ready.
Give your grass a better chance at staying healthy during the summer by adjusting the height of the blade. Taller grass develops deeper roots, making it more resistant to droughts. Tall grass will cover the soil better and keep it moist. When winter comes, cut it shorter to avoid snow mold from forming.
There are major benefits from grasscycling, which pretty much means you're recycling the cut grass to fertilize it. Grass clippings can provide up to 25 percent of your lawn's fertilizer needs. It simple. Just mow your lawn and don't pick up the grass that you just cut. You might want to replace your current mower blade with a mulching blade and make it easier for it to decompose.
There are weeds that thrive on compacted soil, and mowing in the same direction over and over will create the perfect conditions for them to grow. When you mow in the same direction, you risk compacting soil and actually creating ruts so please don't. Both compacted soil and ruts can lead to grass that's less healthy.
Mowing or watering during the heat of the day is not only bad for your health and your pocket, but it's very damaging for the lawn too! The act of mowing itself creates great stress on grass and it will make it harder for it to recover. Try to mow your lawn early morning or late in the evening, this way the heat won't take a toll on you, your lawn and your pocket.
If part of your lawn is on a slope, even a small one, make sure you don't mow while it's wet! It's not only unsafe for you, but it can be very damaging to the grass since you put more pressure on it to get a good grip. If the ground is wet, wait for it to dry completely and consider mowing across the slope or using a string trimmer.
Go green! Battery powered mowers can be a great option for average lawns. It can lower your emissions and it will get the job done. Mow your lawn regularly so that the grass doesn't get too tall. Tall and wet grass will shorten the life of a battery and this can be an inconvenience unless you have an extra one. Remember that you have the option of hiring a professional team such as ours!
