– Keep a regular schedule and avoid cutting off more than 1/3 of the grass leaf.  If you cut too much off when you mow, the grass will turn yellow and be stressed out.

– Sharpen your mowing blade 2-3 times per year.  This will ensure that your lawn mower is making a clean cut and not ripping the grass.  A clean cut improves asthetic apearance and helps prevent disease.

– Change the direction of your mowing pattern every week.  Cross cutting your lawn will make it look better and will prevent the grass from being matted down due to rolling in the same ruts every week.

– Optimal mowing height for Blue Grass is 2.5″ to 3.0″.  Mowing your lawn too short can create several problems like more weeds, higher water requirements, stressed out turf grass and a shallower root zone in most cases.

– Edge your sidewalks and driveways to give your lawn that professional clean look.

– Don’t mow right after you fertilize with granular fertilizer.  The mower may suck up the fertililzer wasting the money and time you put into it.  Water the fertilizer in for a couple of days before mowing, or take the bag off and mulch the grass if you absolutely have to mow your lawn.

– If you plan on spraying the weeds in your yard, spray them the day before you mow.  This will ensure that the weeds you are spraying will have a maximum amount of leaf surface to absorb the weed killer for the best results.
