Lawn mowing

Mowing is the most important thing in lawn care. Timely and regular mowing promotes better grass growth and makes your lawn beautiful. For quality lawn mowing, you need a good lawn mower. To properly and efficiently mow the lawn, follow some rules:

The cutting height for each lawn is selected individually. As a rule, this is 2-2.5 cm from the upper fork or from the ground to a height of about 6-7 cm. If you cut lower, then you risk losing the lawn, because the grass will not have enough solar energy to develop the root system. If, on the contrary, the grass is left high, then the aerial part of the grass becomes weaker and the grass begins to “bush”. And again, the cutting height for each lawn is INDIVIDUAL.



Lawn mowing should be regular, it is recommended to cut no more than 2-4 cm of grass. This means that mowing should be done once every 4-10 days - the frequency directly depends on the weather. Warm and humid means you need to cut more often, if it is dry and hot (cold), then less often. Watch the growth of grass, do not tie lawn mowing to any period.

The blades of a lawn mower should be sharp and the engine powerful enough to ensure a good cut of the grass and allow the lawn to recover faster and easier.

In dry and hot weather, you should mow the lawn with mulching, that is, disconnect the grass catcher from the lawn mower and leave the cut grass on the lawn, and after 2-3 days remove the residue with a rake if you use a lawn mower with adjustable mulching (Honda HRX537 HZ or Honda HRX537 VY), then you do not need to remove the cut grass, just set the desired division on the mulch control. This will create a protective layer of mowed grass on the surface of the lawn, which does not allow moisture to evaporate quickly and serves as a natural fertilizer.

For a beautiful looking lawn, try to mow the lawn in a different path each time to avoid over-compacting the soil and improve mulching.

The pattern of movement on the first mowing can be any, but on the next mowing, you need to mow the lawn, perpendicular to the passage lines in the previous mowing.

Do not forget that lawn mowing is one of the most important care activities, but does not exempt from other procedures: regular and proper watering, scarification and aeration, fertilizing and weed control. We will cover this in future articles.

But sometimes it is better to entrust the care of your lawn to professionals.
