Their top five tips for a healthy lawn this summer are:
1/3 Rule – The goal is to not take more than 1/3 of the size of lawn blade down when cutting the lawn. Anything beyond 1/3 the size of the blade will stress the lawn. So, try to avoid letting the grass get too long then mowing it down too short.
Sharp blades – You want to ensure your blades are sharp to cut the grass rather than tear it with a dull blade.
Dead grass – When mowing you want to avoid leaving too much cut grass clumps laying on top of the lawn. This will block out sunlight and nutrients to the lawn and cause dead spots.
Switch mowing patterns – From week to week or every so often it’s a good idea to switch your mowing pattern. From side to side to front to back.
Mow higher in summer – As we transition into warmer dryer weather it’s a good idea to let the lawn grow taller to protect itself against heat stress.
