Your Lawn Needs A Haircut? Part 2

More Lawn Maintenance Advice For Mowing

Many people talk all the time about the right mowing heights. It seems silly, however, every grass does have its preferred mowing height.

It has to be tall enough enabling the grass to recover from mowing, and maintain a good root system, however, is has to be short enough so the lawn doesn’t get rough looking. Should you be unsure on your regular lawn maintenance, seek the advice of a professional.

Most grass has a balance between the size of their root system, and the length of their grass blades. When the roots and grass blades are in sync, the grass will be at its healthiest, and will be able to handle all kinds of stress.

Don’t Scalp Your Lawn

The easiest way to keep your grass in balance is to keep it at its right height. Avoid scalping your grass because this forces it to tap into its food reserves which stress the grass, and make it thin out. It will be more open to heat, cold, drought, and disease.

When grass is cut back the growth of the roots comes to a complete stop until it can recover. This places a great amount of stress on the grass which is often visible to the eye after mowing. It doesn’t look healthy because it isn’t.
