Many homeowners think of mowing the lawn as a weekly, tedious chore that becomes old quickly. However, the advantages of weekly grass cutting and low maintenance on your yard can do wonders for your outdoor landscape. So, how does mowing your lawn enhance your landscape?
Your grass thrives by enduring photosynthesis, the process of green plants taking in sunlight and producing food and nutrients from it. Overall, photosynthesis keeps flowers, plants, and grass growing. Mowing your lawn enhances your landscape by exposing the grass blades to the right amount of sunlight. This helps the grass grow greener. In addition, the grass clippings remaining from your regular mowing sessions offer extra nutrients to your lawn.
Control Pests from Breeding on Your Lawn
Infrequent mowing leads to tall grass on your property. When there is tall grass, it attracts fleas, ticks, and other pests. In particular, lawns in shady areas tend to attract more pests. So, it’s essential to maintain your property with frequent mowing services from Edward’s Lawn & Landscaping.
Mowing your lawn enhances your landscape by keeping it at the right height. Depending on your lawn’s grass type, the length can vary from 2″ to -3″ inches. Ensuring your turf remains at this height protects the soil from overexposure to the sun. But what happens when you cut your lawn too short? Unfortunately, disease and weeds can quickly spread across your property.
Additionally, more weed control treatments will be necessary to repair your landscape and remove weeds. Overall, consistent mowing at the right height will maintain weeds and protect your turf from lawn disease.
Moreover, mowing your lawn enhances your property by giving it a clean appearance. Your lawn’s appearance becomes beautiful as your yard grows healthier, greener, and thicker. With some simple trimming and edging, your lawn will be the envy of your neighbors and friends.
Simplify Your Maintenance
When you ignore your yard for weeks at a time, it can be challenging to get it back into shape. So, weekly mowing makes your ongoing maintenance more manageable. Remember, it takes longer to mow tall grass. It also makes your equipment overwork to cut down the longer turf blades. Lastly, going over a lawn more than once can trigger stress on your turf during a single mow.
