How to mow your lawn – Tip 1 - Set your lawn mower high

Click To Enlarge

The grass cutting season in the UK typically starts around mid-March to early April when the weather begins to get a little warmer, which in turn encourages the grass to grow.

The grass cutting season generally ends in October when the temperature begins to decline and grass growth slows down.

These dates will vary each year depending on the weather and area in the country you live in.

The golden rule of mowing your lawn is to only cut the top 1/3 of the grass blades at any one time, even if this means you have to cut the grass again after several days. This is because longer grass blades can grow and support more roots and develop a deeper root system that is better able to find water and nutrients in the soil and thus giving you stronger and healthier grass.

Cutting the grass too aggressively, also called “scalping the lawn,” forces grass plants to focus their energy on regrowing their blades, not deepening their roots.

Scalping the lawn also makes your lawn more prone to weeds. Taller grass blades shade the soil and keep it cooler, helping prevent weed seeds from sprouting.

Plus, there are lifestyle benefits: Taller grass is softer to walk on and helps cushion falls better than short grass.

Safety tips for mowing your lawn

  • When using a push lawnmower, always push in a forward direction.
  • Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes, not sandals or flip-flops.
  • Keep an eye out for pets and children, especially if you have a loud lawn mower.
  • Wear sunglasses or some other eye-covering to protect your eyes from any debris that might shoot up while you are mowing the grass.
  • When mowing on a slope, move side to side instead of up and down the slope to reduce the risk of injury from slipping.
