The easiest way to keep your lawn looking pristine all year long is to invest in professional lawn mowing. Routine and proper grass cutting is more important for healthy lawn growth than even fertilizer or irrigation. In Columbia, MO, the prime growing season starts in April and goes through the end of October. During this time, we provide weekly (or as needed) mowing services, which will typically be 20-30 cuts per year.

Frequency, Height, & Blade Sharpness, the 3 Critical Mowing Factors

Believe it or not, there are right and wrong ways to cut a lawn for maximum benefits. To do it correctly, we need to be consistent, cut at the proper height, and use sharp blades to ensure we don't tear the grass blades. We also take care to mow in different patterns and use proper equipment, this eliminates ruts and marks within your turf. Here are the three most important factors we take into account when mowing your lawn:

  1. Frequency: Your lawn should be cut regularly and follow the one-third rule, which means mowing should be done often enough that no more than one-third is trimmed at a time. This means weekly mows during the prime growing season and bi-weekly towards the end of the season.
  2. Height: The healthy height for your turf depends on the kind of grass you have. We keep Zoysia and Bermuda grasses to about 1.5-2 inches in height, whereas Kentucky Bluegrass and Fescue can be left a little longer and maintain 3-4 inches in height during prime growing seasons. However, we always follow the one-third rule regardless of the current height to ensure healthy regrowth.
  3. Mower Blades: Are they sharp enough? Sharp mower blades are imperative to a healthy cut. We keep ours sharp at all times ensuring your lawn gets a clean cut each time. Mowing with dull blades will tear the grass, causing stress when regrowing.
