Some people love mowing their grass. For them, it’s a chance to process the week’s events and have a little brain time. For others, mowing the lawn can be a very annoying chore. In either case, it’s important to remember that – like most things – lawn care is done best in moderation.
For example, if the grass is mowed too infrequently, you run the risk of inviting unwanted guests like ticks or other insects, rodents, or snakes onto your property or your neighbors’ property. Of course, depending on where you live, you may also be found in defiance of a homeowners association’s rules or city/county regulations if the grass is past a certain length.
On the very opposite end of the spectrum, cutting grass too frequently or too short may discourage root growth, which may – in time – kill patches of the grass or the entire lawn.
It may take some time to determine the best methods and frequency for getting your lawn to look great, but it will definitely pay off in the end.
