Mowing Grass: Tips for Safety and Effectiveness

If you are planning to maintain a beautiful lawn in your home, it is important that you know the tasks that you need to do. One of the most popular lawn care and maintenance tasks required from you is mowing grass. This is so you can have an appealing and well maintained lawn at home.

Despite the fact that this is the most common lawn care task that you need to do, there are some things you need to know so you can mow your lawn properly. These tips will help you, especially during the rainy season.

  • If possible, cutting grass should not be done when the lawn is wet. This is because the mower can have a tendency to push or slide over grass instead of just cutting it. As a result, an uneven finish will be produced.

  • Before you cut grass, the blades must be sharpened. This is so the unwanted and unsightly event of grass tearing can be averted. This will also make your grass weak.

  • Before mowing the lawn, you should remove the traces of water that are on the blades of your lawn mower and cut grass clippings. This is so you can prevent your plants to get affected by the many lawn diseases that thrive on wet weather conditions.

  • The settings of your lawn mower blades should be set on a fairly high mode if you wish to get a topping cut. Adding pressure on your lawn mower is not advised.

  • To avoid clogging your mower, your pace should be reduced.

  • If you really need to mow in the early morning and you don’t have time to wait for your lawn to dry, you can brush your lawn first so you can set out the morning dew.

  • As a rule, mowing grass should never be done in very wet weather or when the lawn has been covered with frost. Aside from the fact that this can damage grass, it can also be dangerous to you.
