If you want a nice looking lawn, here are some vital rules for you to follow!
1.- The 1/3 Rule.
Never cut more than 1/3 of the total length of the grass blade at a time. This will help lessen stress on the grass blade and keep the blade healthy and more resistant to diseases.
2.- Don’t Mow Tall Grass.
Don’t try to barrel in to tall grass to get it mowed, especially if it is taller than your mower deck. For more information, proceed to review the post: how to mow tall grass.
3.- Don’t Mow Wet Grass.
Mowing wet grass will lead to clumps, mower stalls, and rough grass blades.
4.- Switch Mowing Directions.
Alternating which way you mow each time will prevent the grass blades from leaning a certain direction. This promotes a more even and straight cut.
5.- Only Mow with Sharp Blades.
Sharp blades are particularly important. Dull blades will damage your grass. Before you begin, always check to be sure you blades are not dull or damaged.
6.- Keep Your Mower Clean.
Always clean your mower after every use. To keep your mower running properly, be sure to clear all of the grass clippings out from under the deck.
