Why It’s Important To Mow Your Lawn


Soil compaction is a common problem that aeration can solve. It’s by far one of the leading causes of poor lawn health and soil erosion issues in Grand Junction. Compacted soil restricts the absorption of water into the ground, which in turn directly affects the health of the turf.

Mowing your lawn has more benefits than just making your yard look smooth and put together. Landscaping professionals affirm that along with lawn fertilization, routine mowing promotes healthy grass growth, as well as eliminates pests from the grass itself. If you increase time between cuttings, more weeds and overgrowth will occur, especially in spring and summer months when grass grows at its fastest. Regular mowing will result in thicker grass and a decrease in weed growth.

Tips On Mowing Your Lawn

To keep your lawn looking healthy year-round, it’s best to mow it weekly as it grows. If the grass is long and overgrown, don’t try to cut it all down at once. This could put stress on your grass and end up killing it in the long run. Mow it down in sections, giving your lawn a few days’ time to recover before cutting it again.

Don’t mow your lawn while the grass is wet. Doing so makes the cut uneven, leaving you with a messy, jagged appearance. Wet grass will also clog up your lawn mower, making maintenance more frequent than you might want.

Mow your lawn in a different direction each time. If you mow it in the same direction consistently, it could cause the grass to lean and grow sideways. Mowing in a new direction every time you mow will keep the grass growing straight and upright.
