Lawn Mowing

Proper mowing is critical to keeping your lawn healthy and looking good. Here are three things we do to keep your lawn “a cut above” the rest:

Lawn Mowing | Green Acres Lawn Care & Landscape

  1. MOW TALL
    Higher mowing promotes deeper roots, prevents water loss by shading the soil, and reduces weeds by preventing sunlight from warming weed seeds. Taller grass also cools the soil and reduces heat stress. We keep our mower blades set to no lower than 3”
  2. MOW OFTEN ENOUGH
    Be sure that no more than 1/3 of the total grass blade is removed in any one mowing. Mowing too short removes too much of the green part of the plant, leaving stalky-looking crowns and stems. This gives the lawn a brown, scalped look and weakens the grass. Recovering from even a single “scalping” sets the lawn’s growth back many weeks. Signing up for weekly mowing services guarantees that the least amount will be cut to maintain strong, thick grass.
  3. PROFESSIONALLY MAINTAINED EQUIPMENT
    Our equipment is inspected and maintained on a regular basis by our well trained, in house technicians. Dull mower blades can rip and shred the tips of your grass blades, turning them a bleached, tan color and leaving the whole lawn looking brown. Our blades are sharpened daily and replaced as needed to ensure the highest quality and best results.
