Like so many other things, lawn care is something that seems pretty straightforward but can be very complex if you want very good results. If you’re interested in improving the look of your property, decreasing the intrusion of pests, and making your neighbors happy, you might give some increased thought to the way you mow your lawn.
For example, what type of mower is best for your property? Does the size of your lawn mean you need a riding lawnmower with a zero-turn radius, or would a simple push mower do the trick? Should it be gas-powered, or electric-powered? Bagged, or bagless?
Also, how short will you keep the grass? Some homeowners think that cutting the grass very short will reduce the number of times they need to mow in a month, but this can cause the grass to develop shallow roots and die out over time. On the other hand, having grass too tall can be unsightly and can encourage pests to visit.
