Lawn mowing is important to keeping your grass here in Texas properly maintained. If you're thinking about hiring a company to take care of your lawn mowing needs, there are three important questions you need to ask. First, does the company rotate mowing patterns with every visit? Mowing in the same direction over and over can damage your lawn and form ruts. Second, what is included during a lawn mowing visit? Every visit should include additional services, like string-trimming, edging, and debris blowing. Finally, does the company sharpen the blades on their lawn mowers regularly? Dull blades can rip and tear your grass, which is detrimental to both its health and appearance.
1. Does the lawn company rotate mowing patterns every visit?
The first thing you should do is check to see if the lawn care company rotates their mowing patterns with every visit. When you mow your lawn in the same pattern or direction every time, it can cause ruts to form. Not only that but your grass may start to lean in one direction, and your soil can become compacted. Compacted soil prevents the roots of your grass from getting nutrients and resources, like water, air, and sunlight, so this can negatively affect its overall health. Mowing your lawn in different directions will prevent ruts from forming, keep your grass standing up straight, and make sure your soil doesn’t become compacted.
2. What is included during a lawn mowing visit?
When you hire a company to mow your lawn, there should be additional services included to make sure it is uniform and well-cared for. Some of these services include:
- String-Trimming: String-trimming is performed to cut the grass in those hard-to-reach spots so your entire lawn is the same height.
- Edging: Where the grass meets a hard surface, like a sidewalk or a driveway, the company should edge so it's properly cut and has a clean, crisp look.
- Debris Blowing: If any grass clippings or debris get on your hardscapes, the company should blow them back onto your lawn so your property is in pristine shape once they finish.
Some companies will mulch the grass clippings after mowing your lawn, which offers many benefits, like returning nutrients back to the soil.
3. Does the company sharpen the blades on their lawn mowers regularly?
Another question you should ask a company before hiring them to mow your lawn is whether they sharpen the blades on their mowers regularly. When the blades of a lawn mower are too dull, they can rip and tear your grass. Not only does this impact its health, but it'll also hinder its appearance. Because of this, it’s important to make sure the company you hire sharpens the blades on their lawn mower regularly so your grass stays healthy and looks pristine.
A high-quality company will adjust the deck height of their lawn mowers according to the type of grass you have on your property.
