We cut your lawn at the proper height based on grass type.
We offer flexible mowing and lawn care services for your home based on your needs and the needs of your lawn. Different types of grass need to be mowed at different heights. This is important because grass that is cut too short can't properly go through the stages of photosynthesis, which hinders the growth and overall look. In the Happy Valley area, cool season grasses thrive and the most common cool-season grasses include:
- Perennial Ryegrass
- Fescue varieties
With the most common grass in our area being Perennial Ryegrass, proper mowing height is even more important. Because Perennial Ryegrass has shallow roots, it is prone to stress if not mowed at the proper height, in which the current season must also be accounted for. For example, during the spring and fall, this common grass type needs to be kept at 2 to 2.5 inches. When summer is here, the grass needs to be kept longer at 2.5 to 3 inches. We'll evaluate your lawn and provide the proper mowing heights and schedule needed for your grass.
To grow a healthy lawn, the single most important thing you can do is have your lawn consistently mowed at the proper height.
Lawns need to be mowed on a schedule.
Although we do offer one-time mows, best results require an ongoing and consistent mowing schedule. We begin weekly mowing in the spring and typically drop to every 10-14 days as fall comes to an end.
The reason consistent mowing schedules are important is to maintain proper height. It's not healthy for your grass to be cut down to the proper height if it's too long. We never cut more than one-third of your grass blades. Doing this impacts the photosynthesis process and will not promote healthy growth. With properly scheduled mowing service, we can always cut one-third of the blade and maintain the correct height for your lawn to thrive.
When done properly, you'll receive maximum benefits from mowing.
By knowing your grass type, how often to mow it, as well as following the one-third rule, we're going to maximize the benefits that regular lawn care and mowing offers your yard. You probably didn't know, but proper mowing is the single most important aspect of maintaining a healthy lawn. Some other major benefits of routine mowing.are:
- Weeds are minimized.
- Pests are minimized.
- Equal amounts of sunlight and hydration can be distributed.
