In this post we are going to give your some useful tips, some simple rules that, if you follow them and apply them the correct way, will help you get a perfect lawn!

Some tips on how to mow the lawn

As we have said, lawn maintenance should be done on a regular basis. This is the first tip: to mow the lawn often, more than once a week. By mowing your lawn on a regular basis, grass will grow strong and luxuriant and the garden will always look perfect. On the contrary, if you mow the lawn only when the grass has grown excessively you will harm it, because you’ll run the risk of tearing off the roots and weaken the grass. Another tip is to change the mowing pattern. This is very important, as a matter of fact, if you follow the same pattern each time you mow the lawn, grass will lean towards the direction you mowed and won’t grow up upright. On the contrary, if you change the mowing pattern, the grass will grow upright, giving the lawn a more uniform aspect. Don’t mow the lawn when it is too dry or if the grass is wet.
