Mowing season is just around the corner, and it's important to make sure your lawn is in tip-top shape before you start cutting. Proper preparation can help ensure a healthy and beautiful lawn all season long. In this blog post, we'll be sharing some tips and tricks for getting your lawn ready for mowing season.

  1. Remove debris: Before you start mowing, it's important to remove any debris from your lawn, such as sticks, leaves, and rocks. This will help prevent damage to your mower and ensure a clean cut.

  2. Aerate the lawn: Aerating your lawn before mowing season can help to improve the health of your grass by allowing water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots. Aeration can be done manually with a hand aerator or with a motorized aerator.

  3. Check the mower: Before you start mowing, it's important to make sure your mower is in good working condition. Check the oil and air filter, sharpen the blades, and make sure the spark plug is working.

  4. Adjust the mowing height: The height of your grass can affect its health, so it's important to adjust the mowing height accordingly. Generally, it's best to mow your lawn when the grass is about 3 inches tall.

  5. Mow frequently: To maintain a healthy lawn, it's important to mow frequently. Mowing too infrequently can lead to uneven growth and scalping.

  6. Alternate mowing direction: To avoid creating ruts and uneven growth, it's a good idea to alternate the direction in which you mow each time.

  7. Leave the clippings: Leaving the clippings on your lawn can help to return nutrients to the soil and reduce the amount of fertilizer you need.

Properly preparing your lawn for mowing season can help to ensure a healthy and beautiful lawn all season long.
