How to Mow your Lawn
How often you mow your lawn will depend on a number of factors.
Firstly, how much time you have to devote to your lawn’s maintenance. Then, how fast your lawn grows, and this in turn will depend on whether you fertilise it regularly and whether it receives adequate water and sunlight. Normally, lawns should be mowed at least one a fortnight to keep them in check.
Needless to say, you should maintain your equipment. In this case make sure your mower blades are sharp and in good condition. Remove any stone or other obstructions from the lawn before mowing to avoid any damage to the mower or lawn.
Do mow in different directions. It does not matter which way, whether it is diagonal, horizontal, or vertical. Each time you mow your lawn, simply change direction from the way you did it previously. This prevents the grass blades from curving in a particular direction after numerous cuts.
It is well known that you should never mow when your lawn is still wet. There are actually two reasons for this. Firstly, you will not be cutting your lawn evenly and when it dries may be a lot longer than expected. Secondly, you can often cause fungus to establish itself.
