Proper Mowing Techniques
By: Danny Lipford
Turf expert Dr. Trey Rogers tells us the best way to insure good lawn health is to mow properly. Here’s how:
- Start with a sharp mower blade.
- Mowing more often.
- Cut off no more that 1/3 of the grass blade’s length at one time to prevent shocking the plant.
- Allow the grass clippings to fall back onto the lawn (mulch) instead of bagging them.
Clippings provide important nutrients, and contrary to conventional thought, do not promote thatch.
