Keeping your lawn well maintained has many benefits for the other greenery on your property.
Proper mowing heights are important in numerous ways. Mowing the turf higher promotes more shade to the soil area, allowing cooler root temperatures, and inhibiting the sunlight needed for weed seed germination. This also helps retain moisture to the soil, minimizing the need for watering, or irrigation. In short, proper mowing creates a stronger turf with fewer weeds.
Additionally, mowing your lawn regularly prevents thatch from building up and compromising your turf health. Thatch is a layer of debris that accumulates on just about every lawn, made up living and dead stems, leaves, roots, and other organic materials. Keeping your turf neatly trimmed helps to keep thatch at bay.
Your local U.S. Lawns professionals utilize mulching mowers, which finely cut the grass clippings, so they’re recycled back into the lawn. Recycled lawn clippings return up to 25% of water and nutrients back into the soil where they’re doing the most good, instead of getting bagged and taken to a landfill.
It’s one thing to regularly mow your lawn, it’s another thing to tend to the details. Your local U.S. Lawns team has the benefit of industry-specific tools and years of experience to keep commercial properties’ lawns neatly edged. The definition and clean lines of flowerbeds, shrubs, trees, as well as sidewalks and other hardscape areas will ensure that your lawn’s edges look neat from one end to the other.
