Mowing may seem like a mundane chore. And in many ways, it is. We can slip on a pair of headphones and zone out as we traipse back and forth over the grass. There’s a lot more to mowing than you may think, however. In fact, lawn mowing habits can set the stage for your lawn to be vibrant and green or burnt-out all season long. That’s why it’s best to let the professionals handle it this year.
Benefits Of Leaving Mowing To The Pros
We Know How Low You Can Go
During the height of summer – when the grass is growing at its fastest rate – it can be tempting to put your mower to the lowest setting, so you don’t have to mow as often. Unfortunately, this is only ideal for warm-season grasses like zoysia, centipedegrass, or Bermudagrass. But here in Delaware, we are solidly in the cool-season grass zone, and these types of grasses do not like to have a buzzcut. Our crew will make sure never to trim more than the top 1/3 of your grass blades. Doing otherwise could stress the grass. And it invites weeds. That’s because weeds are sun-worshippers who thrive indirect light. When the grass is too short, the blades won’t shade any weeds lurking in the lawn.
We Know How To Hit The Slopes
Some yards are perfectly level, but others have hills and inclines. If this applies to your yard, you may have experienced what a little leftover rain can do to the traction of the grass. Slipping on a slope can cause you injury or damage the equipment. You must make sure to mow side to side across the slopes. And even then, you might twist your ankle. We know how to mow your lawn safely and ensure a uniform trim without the safety hazard.
There are many factors that go into keeping a lawn groomed. Some grass requires a weekly mow. Others can go for two weeks, depending on the amount of shade, water level, etc. We’ll assess your property’s unique situation and work with you to create a customized mowing schedule that fits your needs. We don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach to mowing.
Never A Dull Moment
Removing the blades from your mower, or lugging the whole unit, and taking a special trip to the hardware store to sharpen the blades is a pain in the butt. It’s yet another thing that is tempting to just put on the back burner. But unsharpened mower blades won’t make a clean cut and will create ragged edges. At Quality Cut, we keep our mowers and lawn equipment in perfect shape, so you don’t have to worry!
We Know How To Break The Mowing Mold
Humans are creatures of habit, and for those of us that struggle with discipline, a routine can be helpful. But when it comes to mowing your lawn, it’s better to mix things up. If you always mow in the same direction, you can create ruts in the lawn and train the grass to grow in that direction. This leads to a slouched appearance. We’ll make sure to mix up the mowing pattern every time, so your grass grows strong and straight.
If you’d like, we can turn your grass clippings into free mulch! The clippings break down quickly into your lawn and will:
- Returns vital nutrients to the soil
- Moderate the ground temperature
- Help grass retain moisture during the heat of summer
- Prevents soil from compacting
- Suppresses weed growth
Of course, not all yards may be suited for mulching the clippings, and some homeowners prefer the look of a lawn where the clippings are bagged. We’ll work with you to determine what the best option is for your yard.
