Organo-Lawn does not offer lawn mowing as a service but we do understand how to properly mow a lawn and how the techniques can dramatically improve a lawn's appearance and overall health.
Often the highest setting on most mower types is 3 inches. Mowing the grass at 3 inches or taller will prevent diseases, promote deep digging roots, help the grass conserve water, improve turf density, and improve turf color.
A lawn should be mowed frequently enough that no more than 33% of the foliage is removed at one time. This one minor change of mowing on the highest setting will make a major improvement in the overall health and beauty of your lawn.
Grass root depth and mowing height are correlated. Grass roots will dig about 3 times as deep as the height the lawn is mowed.
A very small change in mowing height makes a huge difference in lawn appearance, drought resistance and overall health.
Mowing the lawn tall is one of the best organic weed controls. Lawns that are mowed tall naturally with have fewer weeds than lawns that are mowed short.
Lawn mower blades should be sharpened once every five mows. An easily noticeable sign of a dull blade is when the tips of the grass are ripped, turning them white. One final suggestion for how to properly mow a lawn is to rotate the direction of the cut every mow. For instance, mow lengthwise one week, width wise the next, and diagonal the following. By following these instructions you will put less stress on your lawn, helping create the lush green lawn that you desire.
Dull lawn mower blades will leave the tips of your grass ripped and white, and susceptible to infection.
