How Often Should I Mow in Wilmington, MA

How Often Should I Mow?

Consistent and frequent mowing is one of the most important aspects of growing, maintaining, and keeping a thick healthy lawn.

By mowing frequently, a minimum of once per week ideally, will allow you to abide by the crucial 1/3 rule. The 1/3 rule is that you never want to be mowing more than 1/3 of the height of the grass length. Reason being by is because if you allow too much of the grass blade to be cut off the grass will be over stressed and will not have the lateral growth needed to create the nice thick lawn each of us strive for.

As an added benefit by following this rule you will be able to mulch the grass clippings back into the soil creating a natural recycling process allowing for optimal growth and in return the grass will not need as much water or fertilizer to maintain its healthy state.

I hope this quick breakdown of lawn mowing frequency has helped at least one person learn something new to optimize their grass growth.
