Tips and Tricks to Mow Like A Pro Infographic

Here are a few tips and tricks to create a better lawn, and even save a bit of money while doing so! Let's jump right into this lawn mowing infographic and see what we can learn!

How often should I mow my lawn?

Look, it's simple, the faster your lawn grows, the more you need to cut it. Conversely, when the grass begins to grow more slowly, cut it less often. Typically bi-weekly mowing is acceptable in the slower growing season, where weekly mowing is better in the warmer months when grass is growing more quickly. Also remember, never cut more than the top third of your grass when mowing the lawn. 

How frequently should I sharpen my blades?

Keeping your mowers blades sharp is essential to keeping your lawn healthy and green. But how often should you sharpen your blades? Our research recommends that you should sharpen your blades every 25 hours of cutting. 

What should I do with my fall leaves?

The best way to handle your fall leaves is to leave them in the lawn by mulching them in. By using a mulching kit on your lawn mower you can keep the nutrients the leaves have in your lawn and reduce your need to fertilize. 

What should I do with my grass clippings?

Just as you should leave your leaves in the ground, the same is true for grass clippings. By mulching your grass instead of removing it you are leaving a lot of vital nutrients and organic matter in the lawn. 

Should I mow when the grass is wet or dry?

Always mow a lawn when it is dry, if possible. This reduces the stress the mower will have to endure. Mowers have to work harder to cut wet grass which can lead to tearing of the grass blades and leaves grass more susceptible to disease. 

As you can see there are a lot of great lawn mowing tips and tricks that can create a greener lawn, and even help you save money! This infographic was created by TakeCareofTexas.Org
