Mowing Tips

1. Mow regularly. Don't let your grass get so tall that it's hard to push the mower thought it. If the grass gets too tall, you can end up scalping it (especially Bermuda), because the growing point gets higher along with the taller grass and when you finally come along with your mower, you're mowing that growing point clean off, scalping it.

2. Rule of thumb: never mow off more than 1/3 of the leaf blade.

3. Are your mower blades sharp? Your lawn will be prettier if you use sharp blades that make a clean cut, not a ragged edge.
