Regular mowing is vitally important for the health of any well maintained lawn. Here are our top tips for a thicker, denser lawn using correct mowing methods.

In summary:

  • Mow frequently - once or twice per week during the growing season (late February - November).
  • Never cut more than 1/3rd of the length of your grass at any one time.
  • Service your mower regularly - a sharp blade is essential for a healthy lawn.
  • Regularly change direction of your cut.
  • Avoid mowing the lawn too short. Scalping your lawn can increase stress whilst promoting the development of moss and weeds.
