Lawn Mowing

Lawn Mowing

Lawn mowing sounds extremely straightforward. However, lawn connoisseur knows the proper procedure of lawn mowing. Biggest miscue homeowners make cutting grass too short. Evenness of the cut provides lawn, a good look. Grass grows faster after it has been trimmed to regain its genetic form.

Second most issue is when to stop mowing. Lawn mowers maintain, never to remove more than one-third of blade length. Mowing means pruning. Severe cutbacks are more stressful for grass and require extra energy to heal. When grass grows faster in mid-spring, mowing is required twice a week.

You should not leave enormous piles of clippings of grass after mowing. This will mat down the leaving grass blades, which will discolor the grass and provoke diseases. Clippings in small piles need to be raked up. It is preferable if you compost it or use as mulch over garden beds.

Finally, many homeowners take the same route while mowing. This is because of convenience, habit or nosy neighbor. No horticultural problem will arise with that, but altering the route provides cosmetic difference.

Lawn mowing tips include mow high and often with sharp blades. Soon, you will become a master of mowing.

Lawn Services

While choosing lawn care service, you are likely going to choose any of the two categories. Either, you can hire a company to take care of the ins and outs maintaining your outdoor, or you can want to do yourself. Before doing self-maintenance of your lawn, you must be well aware of all the required information. This mainly includes the appropriate period of mowing the grass. If you mow grass when the sun is extremely hot, then you are applying additional stress on the grass. Even you should not mow right after rain or until the grass is entirely dry. If you cut a wet yard, the grass will get open to all sorts of fungus and disease. This can eventually kill the grass.

You can keep healthy yard by setting frequency of lawn care service. Lawn care companies will come on a regular schedule of once a week. The general rule of thumb for any yard states to cut off not more than one-third of the grass once.

Finally, you must be acknowledged about the proper process of mowing the grass. Here, you need to hire a lawn care service. Professionals are experts to cut the grass properly in order to retain its healthy look.

Lawn Aeration – Explained!

        An Aeration is one of the best tools one can utilize when trying to obtain a Healthy Lawn. Core Aeration consists of making small holes in the lawn by either inserting small rods into it or by “coring”, or extracting a “plug” of soil and thatch out from the lawn. The following are just some of the benefits of performing a yearly lawn aeration:

Benefits of Lawn Aeration / Core Aeration

  • Oxygen can now easily reach the roots, allowing the grass to “breathe”, or let off gasses it produces
  • Fertilizers and Nutrients can now get easier access to the root system because of the available space
  • Water is now better able to permeate the soil, and reach the root system
  • The thatch is now broken up, allowing micro-organisms to come to the surface and feed on it, giving the turf more nutrients
  • The compacted soil surrounding the roots is now broken up, allowing new turf to grow, and giving you a fuller looking lawn

The benefits of core aeration are directly related to growing, and maintaining a  healthy lawn program. Many of our customers that take part in our own Fertilization can attest to the difference it makes. If you would like to find out more about aerations, or would like to schedule one, please call us at 248-588-1694, email us at info@totallawncareinc.com, or Click Here to use our Online Request!
