There is a knack to cutting grass properly. Done properly, mowing can reduce the necessity of using any additional pesticides in your Toronto, GTA, Scarborough, North York, East York yard. Growing a good stand of healthy grass makes it more difficult for weeds to get started. Mowing too infrequently or too short can cause the yard to turn brown and allow lawn diseases to ravage the already stressed grass. Preserving a good height is important. Most varieties of grass ought be cut when it reaches four inches high. Allowing grass to grow higher than this can make grass to go into shock when it's mown again. Using mulching blades return the grass clippings to the lawn where they become an organic fertilizer. With the exception of a few short southern grasses, the mower deck should be set to three inches. Many home owners clip the grass too low, thinking that they will not have to cut the lawn again so soon. But this can also shock the grass. Taller grass remains greener. It shades the soil and thwarts weeds from germinating. Grass grows at different rates throughout the growing season. Differences in the quantity of water, sunshine, and warmth all affect the rate of growth. Your mowing cycle ought to adjust to the growth of the grass and not be preprogrammed strictly by the calendar. When the lawn grows rapidly in the spring, it usually needs to be cut twice a week. During summer's dryness, it may need mowing only every other week. Maintaining the grass properly and regularly will save work in the long run.
