Lawn/Grass Cutting

Mowing / mowing is a job that requires sufficient knowledge and certain important matters must be considered very carefully. A charming lawn depends on how well it is maintained. The height and frequency of mowing the lawn / grass should complement the grass growth patterns. This results in a uniform, dense turf that prevents weeds and supports the intended use of the turf. Cutting or mowing low can have many adverse effects on the lawn. It weakens the turf, causes sparse grass, promotes weed invasion, makes the lawn more susceptible to pests, and can kill the lawn over time.

Mowing too high can also have many unwanted effects on the lawn. It produces rough, unattractive lawns and promotes the build-up of felt (felt-like plant debris). The frequency of mowing or mowing is the same as the cutting height. It is equally important to maintaining a healthy lawn and depends on the growth rate of the grass, which in turn depends on climatic conditions and lawn care procedures.

To maintain a rough lawn, it is only necessary to occasionally use suitable machinery or to graze animals to mow / mow grass. However, maintaining lawns with good visibility requires special maintenance procedures. Do not mow or mow the lawn when it is wet. The grass should be cut regularly with a sharp knife at an even height. 30% to 40% of the plant tissue should not be removed. The mowing direction should be alternated with the previous mowing direction. Soil, sand or other materials should be used for top dressing.

In winter there are few lawn maintenance requirements and only a small amount of organic matter (such as green waste compost) and important minerals are required to encourage beneficial microorganisms and soil. This is done through processes such as sweeping or raking. To level the soil and encourage cut or branched grass plants to roll over the lawn. In addition, to absorb more nutrients into the soil and reduce soil compaction, a nail aerator or a tap or core aerator should be used for aeration. Finally, seeding is required to keep the turf thick and to cover the dappled area.

The best cutting height depends on the growth habit of the particular grass and the leaf texture (i.e., the length and width of the blade). Grass survival depends on whether it produces enough leaf area to produce food through photosynthesis. The lawn/clump is cut too low, creating too much food production space for the grass. If the grass is literally hungry, the lawn will get thinner and look sparse. Conversely, cutting the lawn too high will adversely affect the appearance and usability of the turning area. No cutting height is suitable for all turf. A different lawn mower must be set for each grass type. Each grass is cut taller, healthier and deeper within the optimum cutting height range. Even within the recommended mowing range, low-cut grass is more resistant to drought, high temperatures, traffic, shade and vermin than low-cut grass.

The time and frequency of mowing / grass can be determined by taking into account the growth rate of the grass in each season and the desired lawn appearance.
