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

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

Denise D.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
