Proper lawn mowing is essential to a healthy lawn. Lawns that are mown properly have fewer weeds and have better drought stress tolerance. Proper mowing basically consists of three things, proper mowing height, mowing with a sharp blade, and proper mowing frequency. Most lawns in our area consist of Tall Fescue, Bermuda grass, and fine fescue. Proper mowing height for these three grasses is two and a half to three inches. Custom Lawn Manicuring & Design mows all of our lawns at a height of three inches throughout the spring and summer months. Mowing with a sharp blade is a very important part of proper lawn care. When a lawn is mowed the plant itself is damaged and the plant must repair the damage that has occurred. Your lawn uses water and fertilizer to repair this damage. Mowing with a sharp blade reduces the stress on the plant thus reducing the need for water and fertilizer.

Custom Lawn Manicuring & Design sharpens its blades on a weekly basis guaranteeing you a sharp clean cut every time. The final ingredient in proper mowing is how frequently your lawn is mowed. Scientific studies in plant health have shown that no more than one-third of the leaf blade should be removed at one time. If a lawn is kept at a height of three inches you should mow your lawn when it reaches a height of four to four and a half inches. A typical lawn that is properly fertilized and watered will grow between one and three inches in a week. Custom Lawn mows all of our customers on a weekly basis to provide them with the highest quality of cut.

When choosing a lawn care company, it is vital to choose a company that is going to do what is right for your lawn. Proper lawn mowing is essential to having the thick, green lawn, you want. Custom Lawn Manicuring & Design mows every lawn we maintain on a weekly basis at the proper height and with a sharp blade.
