Tips to Mow Like a Pro

Lawn Mowing Tips
  • Don’t cut your grass too short, not shorter than 3 inches.
  • Grass about 3 inches (8cm) tall usually looks better, encourages a deeper root system, and helps prevent weeds from invading.
  • Keep your blades sharp and balanced because dull blades can increase the chances of diseases and pests due to ragged cuts so avoid this by regularly sharpening them. 

Follow the 1/3 Rule 
  • For a healthy lawn, never cut more than one-third of the grass blade during any one mowing session. If your lawn grows too long, due to wet weather or a busy schedule, increase the cutting height of your mower to the highest possible setting before you mow. 
  • Then move the cutting height back to your normal range and cut the lawn again four or five days later. If you stick to the 1/3 rule, you should never have to worry about bagging the clippings, because the grass clippings will always be short enough to filter down to the soil's surface to decompose and recycle nutrients back into your lawn.

Avoid mowing wet lawn 
Cutting wet grass can also cause problems for your mower by sticking to its undercarriage. Disease can be spread through your grass when it’s wet so you need to be aware of any fungi or bacteria in your lawn.

Mow around the edge of the lawn first.
  • Do this about two times. Once you are done with that, you will have enough room to turn your mower around as you mow the middle.
  • Mow in straight lines back and forth across the lawn; overlap each pass. 
  • Check the lawn for rough terrain or uneven surface, rocks or other debris beforehand.
