Winter is officially long gone. Are you ready for all the growing your lawn is going to do this spring, summer, and even fall? If you’re still not sure if a lawn care service contract, which includes mowing, is right for you, then keep reading!
Mowing is a very important part of proper lawn care. Doing so on a regular basis helps keep the grass short, neat, and even. It also gives your lawn a well-manicured and orderly appearance. Here are three reasons why mowing your lawn is important:
Increases Your Curb Appeal
One of the benefits of a routine grass cutting schedule is that it keeps your lawn visually pleasing. When you keep your lawn maintained, it contributes to the look and feel of not only your home, but your entire neighborhood. Additionally, it could help you stay within any regulations set by your homeowner's association. HOAs often have rules regarding lawn maintenance and grass height.
Grass Stays Healthy and Strong
In order to keep lawn diseases, such as brown patch, and common insects, like chinch bugs, from damaging your grass, your grass needs to be as healthy and strong as possible. When your lawn is regularly mowed, it keeps the blades at the ideal height for photosynthesis and nutrient absorption. It also ensures the grass grows evenly throughout your yard and that the blades are all getting the correct amount of nutrients.
We’ve all seen yards that are patchy and uneven. They can be somewhat of an eyesore. Uneven growth is what causes this common lawn problem, but fortunately, you can avoid this with regular mowing. When you slice the growth of your grass down to a short, uniform level on a regular basis, you are actually improving overall growth. There will be an even distribution and absorption of resources that come from the sun and water. Consistency in growth is crucial to a manageable mow that saves your time and energy.
At Olive Branch, we love mowing lawns, but we know that it isn’t everyone’s favorite thing to do.
