Tips In Lawn Care – St Peters MO Property Owners’ Lessons To Mowing

The thing to remember is that almost anyone can mow the lawn, it is not rocket science. Nevertheless, in performing this critical task, one should be careful and avoid doing it indiscriminately or else, he or she will only damage the lawn.

Here are a number of tips on lawn mowing and lawn care St Peters MO property owners should be able to use in ensuring the optimal growth of the grass on their lawns.

It would not matter if you are using zero-turn lawn mower, a push reel mower or a rotary push lawn mower, among the most significant things that you have to constantly take a look at is your mower’s blades sharpness. You risk damaging your lawn if its blades are too dull. You will know that it is time to sharpen the blades of your mower when you notice in the grass if you look closely that there are some discoloration in the tips and the grass blades are shredded as well. The ideal thing to do is to make sure that you get your mower’s blades sharpened at least once a year. It is also advisable, however, to take the type of grass you have on your lawn into consideration since some types of grass are much tougher and can quickly dull a lawn mower’s blades.

A lot of property owners find it irresistible to mow their lawns too closely so that they will be able to skip mowing the following weekend. On the other hand, the grass will become too stressed and its ability to do photosynthesis is hindered if you more than a third off the blades of the grass. Of course, you are going to have to mow your lawn more than you actually want to, but the benefit of having a lush lawn should be sufficient enough motivation for you.

But the question is, how often should you really mow your lawn? Looking at the height of the blades is probably the best and most simple method to determine whether you already have to mow your lawn or not. Keep in mind though that you must never mow your lawn when weather conditions are too wet or when it is too hot. When you mow your lawn when it is wet, you are going to notice some brown spots on your lawn a few days after mowing. This is simply because the clippings left on the grass during you last mowing session have begun to clump.

On the other hand, you should ease off a bit and set your mowing height a little bit higher than the usual if the grass on your lawn is still recuperating from drought or damage.

What should you do about grass clippings? Property owners simply leave grass clippings behind after they mow their lawns. The clippings can actually offer a lot of benefits, aside from just helping home owners save time and effort to bag them. Some of the benefits are transfer of vital nutrients to the grass, lowered temperature of soil and increased moisture retention.

"Lawn Masters has been taking care of our lawn for many years. They are dependable and very professional. I purchased a couple of cuttings for a Fathers Day gift. After that first visit, my husband was hooked. He sold our mower and never looked back. Thank you, Lawn Masters, for giving us back some of our precious weekend time."

"Lawn services are a dime a dozen, but Lawn Masters is "a cut" above them all. I have employed other lawn services in the past with poor results and I gave it one last try and hired Lawn Masters to fertilize and treat my lawn and it has never looked better. They are prompt, friendly and reasonably priced. I am a customer for life."

"First time I have ever used a lawn service and I could not be happier. Lawn Masters are dependable and do an excellent job. They trimmed near my fence and edged near my sidewalks. I will definitely use them next season."

"We switched to Lawn Masters this past Spring after suffering through the lawn service our previous house owners had used. We started with a complete remodeling of our front landscape and then weekly service and lawn maintenance. Totally love the restructuring of the front landscaping, and our once sad looking lawn is now lush and full and most importantly, weed free! Communication is prompt and service is courteous. Very pleased with Lawn Masters and always recommend them."

I've used Lawn Masters for years. They have great crews that get the job done quickly. They are also wonderful for keeping my driveway plowed in the winter. The price is reasonable and the Management is very responsive. They have even done some beautiful landscape work for me. Our subdivision uses them to take care of our entrances and we are all very happy with their service.

"We've used Lawn Masters for several years now and couldn't be more pleased - our yard went from lots of weeds to no weeds at all. They are courteous and do a great job. It is so nice to have someone who knows what they are doing and not have to spend the time or effort figuring it out myself. Would highly recommend."
