Lawn Care Tips For a Picture Perfect Landscape
( continued from page 2 )
… properly watered, a simple maintenance regimen will help to keep it healthy.
4) Mow it right.
Here’s a little known fact: Stress is as bad
for your lawn’s health as it is for our health.
And one way homeowners unwittingly over-stress their grass is by cutting it
Truth is, your grass will be much healthier if you raise the height of your mower. So when mowing,
mow as high as possible.
Avoid cutting more than one-third of the grass height at any single mowing. This leaves plenty
of the grass blades intact and additional leaf area to advance the growth of photosynthesis.
- If your grass is 5 inches tall at mowing time, don’t cut it any shorter than 3.25 inches
- If your grass is 4 inches tall at mowing time, don’t cut it any shorter than 2.5 inches
- If your grass is 3 inches tall at mowing time, don’t cut it any shorter than 2 inches.
5) Consistency is the key.
The final piece of the lawn care puzzle is to be consistent. The more consistent your mowing schedule
and your overall approach to lawn care, the healthier the grass will be, and the more likely you will have
the picture perfect, ‘envy of the neighborhood’ lawn and landscape you can be proud of.
