With the sun peeking out more and more this spring, we thought it would be beneficial for you to think about the different ways that you can take care of your lawn in the warmer weather. Although you may know how to keep your lawn healthy in the heat, it is always a good idea to understand some lawn mowing tips for this time of year.
Here are 3 quick tips from Executive Lawn Care that will make lawn mowing easier for you this season.
1. Avoid Scalping Your Lawn
Have you ever gone to get a haircut and had the stylist just cut your hair a little too short? We can guess you didn’t like it; well, neither does your lawn. Contrary to many novice lawn mowers, cutting, or scalping your lawn too close to the ground just isn’t healthy.
Scalping leaves your lawn exposed to the hot elements of spring and summer. Also, without the protection of a well-kept height, your lawn blades will just soak up any water they have and end up drying up.
Before you mow, talk to your local Frisco lawn care provider and find out how short your lawn should be for a healthy lifespan.
2. Keep Your Lawn Mower Blades Sharp
While this may seem like an obvious tip, you would be surprised at how little people really think about the sharpness of their lawn mower blades. A sharp blade creates results with each mowing attempt. If you are trying to get the job done with old, dull blades, we hope that you enjoy having to retrace your steps each time you take a stab at mowing your lawn.
3. Keep Your Lawn Mowing in the Shade
No one wants to be doing yard work in the sun. So, by maintaining and training your yard and landscaping to provide shade, you are helping your lawn thrive while also making lawn care a comfortable experience. Keeping your lawn shady helps your grass absorb its water. Also, mowing in the shade just causes less stress on your lawn in general.
Also, while you are mowing the lawn, consider leaving the clippings along the remaining yard. This provides an extra amount of shade for your lawn to thrive under. However, there can be times where lawn clippings can be harmful to your lawn. It is best to talk with your lawn care provider to find out how to approach this lawn care technique.
