In exciting news, building off of those winning relationships, the team at Colbert Lawn Service is now sharing monthly tips on how to have the best lawn possible.
This month’s piece of advice: mowing too short. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make in caring for their lawn is mowing the grass too short. For many, over-mowing is an attempt to save a little energy or time by trimming the grass shorter, thereby lessening the need to mow. This ill-conceived time saver actually damages the grass, making root systems shallow and unable to soak up all the nutrients they need. Most grasses do best when they are trimmed to two-and-a-half to three inches.
More sage advice, which is common but should not be overlooked, includes:
- Do not mow right after it rains. Mowing wet grass causes clumping and ruts. This also leaves the lawn more susceptible to certain diseases.
- Mow in the morning. It’s preferable to mow earlier in the day. It’s better for the grass and the lower temperatures are better for you.
- Keep your mower in top shape. Not only are dull blades ineffective, but they can damage your lawn too.
