How A Lawn Care Specialist Can Mow Your Lawn Correctly

by Tanya Green

If you want your lawn to look its best, which most people do, then think about having a professional take care of it. There are things that have to be done in certain ways in order for your lawn to remain healthy. If these things aren't done correctly, then the lawn can develop a number of issues and even die. Here is information on having your lawn mowed that you want to be aware of: 

The lawn should be mowed frequently

The exact amount of time your lawn can go between mowing can slightly vary depending on certain factors. The lawn will need to be mowed more often during the growing season, which is generally the cooler parts of fall and spring for cool-season grasses and the warmer months of summer for warm-season grasses. During the growing season, the lawn should be mowed about once a week. Other times of the year, the lawn should be mowed about once every few weeks. The lawn care specialist will know how frequently your lawn will need to be mowed, so work with them on a schedule that ensures your lawn is getting mowed regularly enough. 

The lawn should be mowed to a certain height

One of the things that makes it hard for individuals to mow their own lawn is not knowing the correct cutting height. A lawn that's cut too short is more susceptible to heat damage and weed invasion. Alternatively, a lawn that's not cut low enough will be susceptible to problems like mosquito infestations, as well as issues with many other pests, including mice and snakes. Fortunately, a lawn care specialist will know the proper height to cut your lawn to in order to keep it healthy, help it look great, and prevent a number of issues. 

The lawn should be edged for landscape reasons

While having the lawn edged isn't necessary for the health of the grass, it is important for other reasons. Having the lawn regularly edged when it is mowed will create a barrier for the root that prevents the grass from infringing on areas where you don't want it. This stops it from overtaking areas like your flower beds and other parts of the landscape where you don't want to have grass. The lawn care specialist who mows your lawn will also be able to quickly edge to make your yard look fantastic. To learn more, contact a company like Christal Clean Landscapes.

Exploring Landscape Setups

Hello, I am Manny Juanez. When I moved into my home, I instantly started to plan out my landscape features. I knew that I wanted a small waterfall leading to a pond for my fish. I also wanted to create a few raised beds around the sitting area by the pond. What I didn't know, however, was that the project would take a lot of manpower and a bit of professional help. My site will explore the process from grading the land to setting up the electrical components. I will also talk about building the garden beds with pavers and other found materials. The information I provide should help you create a beautiful layout in your back or front yards. Come back to my site whenever you need some inspiration.
