Need A Fresh Cut


We all know that lawns need to be mowed, but how often and by whom? If you're a homeowner, you might want to take care of your own lawn. If not, there are options for hiring a professional who can take care of it all for you!


Your lawn needs to be mowed, but where do you start?

So you've decided to mow your lawn. That's great! But before you start, there are a few things to consider.

First, how often should I mow my lawn? The answer depends on what type of grass or weeds are growing in the area and the time of year. A general rule is that if you have Bermuda grass, which grows quickly and vigorously during warm weather months (June through October), it will need to be cut at least once per week during these months. If not maintained regularly during this time period then it may become overgrown and difficult to manage later on when cooler temperatures begin affecting its growth rate again--and even worse: it could die from lack of sunlight reaching its roots! On average though most homeowners find themselves having only one person who takes care for their yards so as long as they don't forget about them completely then everything should be fine."


Mowing the right way will ensure that your yard looks great!
  • Water your lawn before you mow it. This will help to prevent clumps of grass from forming into a ball, which can cause uneven cutting and leave the grass looking patchy.

  • Mow when the ground is dry, but not dusty or muddy. If this isn't possible (for example, if you live in an area with hot summers), then wait until evening when it's cooler outside and less likely for dust or mud to stick onto your mower blades.*

Mow at a height that works best for your type of grass:

  • If you have thick Bermuda-type grasses that grow quickly during springtime and summer months, keep them about 2 inches tall; otherwise they'll become coarse and brown.* Shorter heights require less maintenance overall because there are fewer blades poking through the topsoil--but they also tend to look messy more quickly.* However! If you're dealing with lots of weeds growing alongside these shorter pieces of turfgrass then cutting shorter could actually help reduce their numbers by preventing sunlight from reaching them as easily!


Paying a lawn service to take care of your lawn can save you time and money in the long run.

  • It's tempting to think that doing it yourself will save you money, but this isn't always true. A lot of people find that they spend more time mowing than they would have if they'd just paid someone else for their services. If you do decide to do it yourself, make sure that you're able to set aside enough time each week so that it doesn't become an afterthought or burden on top of everything else going on in your life.

  • Even if paying someone else seems like too much money at first glance (and let's face it--it might), think about all those hours saved by not having to push around a heavy machine across acres upon acres of grass every weekend! You'll have more time available during the weekdays when there aren't any chores waiting for them at home; maybe even enough energy left over after work so as not feel exhausted by Friday night!
