Lawn care is a fairly broad term that includes activities such as landscaping, lawn care, growing grass, mowing or mowing.
The layman might think that lawn care is just a simple activity of planting and mowing, but it is not.
Lawn care means taking good care of the lawn. It is not only planting or cutting grass, but also proficient in planting and mowing expertise.
These two adverbs “when” and “how” are very important in lawn care. They asked many questions such as “When should the grass be cut? How often should the grass be cut? How high should the grass be cut? How low should the grass be cut? How should the grass be cut?”
These are not simple questions to answer. One must be knowledgeable on the subject, and unprofessional methods can prove ineffective for lawns.
When should the grass be mowed?
Before preparing for mowing, there are some important things to keep in mind.
First, make sure the lawn is not wet. One should not try to cut even dewy grass. A damp lawn can cause the grass to rot because the mower blocks the grass or sinks into a swamp. The lawn mower can pull the grass out of the wet ground. In this case, the simple solution is to wait and completely dry the lawn.
Second, when the grass grows to at least a third of the height of mowing, it is time to mow.
How often do you mow the grass?
The frequency of mowing depends on the type of grass and the season. Different grasses have different growth patterns and peak seasons. They grow quickly in their respective growing seasons.
When temperatures exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit, warm season grasses thrive. They grow very quickly in the summer so you may need to prune them every 3-4 days. The growth rate of these grasses can slow in the fall, so they may only need to be pruned every other week. These grasses usually turn brown and dormant when temperatures drop in winter.
On the other hand, the cool season grass thrives at 60-75 degrees Fahrenheit. They are very active in the spring and fall, so they may need regular pruning. In the hot and dry summer, the growth rate of these grasses will slow, which means that less cutting will be required. These grasses cannot withstand the hot summer and can turn brown and dormant in extremely hot conditions, but the humid climate and higher elevation are very beneficial to them.
In the spring, bluegrass or fescue grass grows vigorously. In the spring, they should be pruned every three to four days, while in hot, dry or cold conditions they should be pruned only once every seven to 10 days.
In the rainy season the grass grows quickly, so it must be pruned regularly.
