Many a summer day is spent in the pursuit of the perfect lawn. That’s going to mean mowing. Whether you do it yourself or hire the kid from next door there are some tried and true lawn mowing tips you should be following to make sure your new grass will grow as green as it should.
After planting new sod you should let it grow for a least ten days straight. The idea length for a lawn is anywhere between 1 1/2 to 2 inches. Lawns that grow higher than that could end up “thatching” which can prevent water from spreading evenly. If for some reason your grass has grown long don’t cut it all down at once. You should only chop off 1/3 of the grass blade. Then wait a few days to cut the rest. Yes, you can shock your new grass!
Then there is the issue of your lawn mower. Are you an old school gas pump kind of a mower? You you like the eco-friendly rotary tumbler? Or do you prefer to go electric? Any type of lawnmower will get the job done but if your mower has seen better days then it might be time to make the switch. Now is the perfect time to go shopping for a lawn mower, as many stores are eager to clear out their stock.
