Maintenance of Your Newly Installed Lawn
 
 
Mowing Your Lawn the Correct Way
 
Are you really mowing your lawn the right way? Most people aren’t exceptionally fond of this lawn maintenance task, but if you do it the right way, you can enjoy a nice lawn. Here are a few mowing tips that can help to keep the quality of your grass looking great while still saving time.
 
 
Don’t Cut Your Grass Too Short
 
Cutting your grass too short can help destroy it by making it vulnerable to weeds and insects. You are going to want to keep your blade sharp, too. Dull blades can destroy the grass shaft. One rule of thumb: never cut more than 1/3 of the grass height.
 
 
Cut at Appropriate Times
 
Spring is the time for most grass cutting, which would be about once a week, depending on your personal preferences. During warm weather, grass should be cut a few times a month. Don’t over water; it can help cut down on growth.
 
 
Leave Lawn Clippings
 
This is a key time saver. Don’t waste time with bagging grass. Leaving the clippings on your lawn will help nutrition of your lawn. It can also help retain water so that you don’t have to spend as much time watering it.
