Mowing the lawn is one of those household chores that some people like to do and some people definitely don’t. But mowing your lawn is incredibly important for the quality of your grass and how quickly it grows. Mow it too often and it can affect the development of the turfgrass plant. Leaving longer intervals between mowing can improve turf vigour and quality, provided no more than 40% of the leaf tissue is removed at one time.
The growth rate of your turf is one of the biggest factors that will impact on how often your lawn needs to be mowed. It’s important to be careful not to remove too much leaf surface in any one mowing or you risk damaging your lawn. Alternating mowing direction regularly will also benefit the turf by making the grass stand upright and increase the density of the grass sward. We’ve got many years’ experience working with growth rates and know how, and how often, to mow your lawn to make sure you’re getting the most from it.
