Many don’t know that mowing a lawn is more important for the health of a lawn than purely for aesthetic reasons. Mowing a lawn at the correct height and uniformly across the whole lawn is integral for promoting growth and allowing nutrients to penetrate the soil evenly and help the new grass to grow consistently transforming the patchiest of grasses. Regular and correct mowing allows your lawn to grow deeper roots, increase its drought resistance and the reduction of maintenance requirements.
In the colder months, your lawn may require less cutting, but it is important to make sure that when it does require cutting it is done properly to ensure that your lawn will thrive and survive the warmer summer and spring months.
Lawn care and mowing frequency will depend on your grass type, soil nutrients and how frequently you water your lawn. Different grass varieties will grow at various rates ranging from ½ an inch in the warmer months to 4 inches in the height of summer.
The most common lawn mowing troubles that many individuals and businesses face include:
- Cutting a lawn too short (“scalping”) due to incorrect mower height affecting growth and may leave patches encouraging weed growth.
- Not removing sticks and leave debris which apart from a safety hazard will leave your lawn patchy.
- Lack of edging which apart from leaving a messy finish can encourage the growth of weeds.
- Cutting wet grass which can be dangerous for your footing can damage your mower and will tear up your lawn and expose soil.
- Mowing the same pattern every time, which can prevent the upright growth of your grass.

Lawn Mowing For Residential properties
Apart from a hassle, digging out your mower if it is fuel powered, filling it up or plugging it in for the more modern electrical mowers and pushing it across the lawns and annoyingly navigating narrow sections. Edging is another kettle of fish, you may be used to using a manual edger (manual being the key word here) or a whipper snipper which can be dangerous, to say the least.
