They say the grass is greener on the other side. We say it’s greener where it’s taken care of. We’ll be honest, keeping your lawn in a top-notch shape is fairly easy, but it can be difficult if you’re winging it. So if you find yourself confused about how to maintain your lawn, you’re in the right place because experts on lawn mowing in Penrith are here to help you out. Read on to find out how often you should mow your lawn why!
Length of The Grass Matters
First off, let’s talk about the length of your grass. This is important because the taller you allow the grass to grow, the longer the root systems of your lawn will be. The longer the systems, the stronger and healthier your lawn will be.
Have you been struggling with yellow grass? You're not alone. And while you may think that this means you need to stop cutting, it's quite the opposite. The reason why your lawn turned yellow after you've mowed is that the blade setting was too low and you cut it too short. It's completely understandable if you prefer a very short lawn, but keeping it healthy will require plenty of care. As a rule of thumb, don't cut more than one-third of the height of a grass blade. And as you may have already guessed, the frequency of mowing is directly connected to this rule.
How Often You Should Mow
It’s typically suggested that you mow your lawn once a week, but it depends on a lawn. Some lawns need cutting more often, others grow slower and don't need more cutting than once every two weeks.
So generally speaking, what matters most is how tall the grass is, rather than how long ago you mowed it last. That said, keeping a schedule can help remind you when to check if lawn mowing is needed.
