Gardening Tips

Free Gardening Tips For Better Lawn Growth

If you want gardening tips then you have come to the right place. We regularly add articles filled with gardening tips of which a few are shared below regarding correct mowing of the lawn.

One of the most important gardening tips when it comes to mowing of lawn is that you shouldn’t mow the grass too short. If you do, you will struggle to keep weeds, pests, and ugly insects at bay. The grass will not be able to grow strong and will dry out and the soil will become too compacted for the roots to reach nutrients. As a rule of thumb, never mow the grass leaves more than one third of their length. You want the grass to be strong and to keep its nutrients. If you cut too short the grass will not have enough nutrients and will put all of its effort into growing again.

A second important tip when it comes to lawn mowing is that you should alternate the direction of mowing with every new session. Ruts will form where the lawnmower wheels rolled if done in the same direction every time.

A third important tip is to regularly mow rather than wait for long periods in between.  The less enthusiastic gardener may not want to hear it, but more regular mowing will in fact, reduce maintenance. The grass will be stimulated and will keep the lush green appearance. Avoid cutting the grass when the grass is wet as this will only lead to pest and disease infestation.  Keep the lawnmower in tip-top condition and the grass will show appreciation through lush growth. It is simple. Sharp blades will not damage the grass leaves and as such a healthier lawn will be the end-result.
