4 Lawn Mowing Mistakes to Avoid Cumming, GA
Lawn Mowing Cumming, GA

Whether you are trying to have the most attractive lawn in the neighborhood or simply want to avoid a landscaping eyesore, you’ll need to cut your grass on a routine basis. However, how you mow your lawn can make a significant difference in both its health and appearance. It is easy to blame a lackluster lawn on poor irrigation or fertilizers, but your mowing approach could also be sabotaging your lawn.

Mowing is not all about timing or how often you complete this yard task. Here are some mowing mistakes that are less obvious but no less damaging to your turf:

#1 Mowing with Dull Blades
When is the last time you checked your mower blades? If your mower blades aren’t sharp, your grass blades can end up jagged and uneven. While this may seem like a minor imperfection, jagged grass blades makes your lawn more susceptible to disease and pests.

#2 Wet Mowing
Always try to mow at a time when your grass is dry. Mowing grass that is wet from irrigation, rain or morning dew can cause clogs in your mower as well as make it challenging to achieve a clean and even cut.

#3 Mowing in the Same Direction
We are all creatures of habit. However, when it comes to mowing your lawn, it is best if you change it up a bit each time you mow. Mowing in a different direction each time helps to prevent unsightly grooves in your grass.

#4 Cutting Too Short
This is a big (and common) mistake. If you are cutting your grass extra short to avoid frequent mowing, you are sacrificing the health of your lawn. A lawn that is too short leaves the grass blades stressed and susceptible to disease. When it comes to mowing height, most grasses do well with 2.5 to 3 inches.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
