Mowing the Lawn

The Importance of Regular Lawn Mowing The Lawn

Mowing the lawn is a very important part of proper landscape care.  There are a host of benefits that are associated with mowing the lawn that make it well worth it in the end.

Mowing serves a two-fold purpose.  First, the cosmetic benefits can be noticed immediately. A properly cut lawn is something that is very pleasant to behold. Mowing on a regular basis helps keep the grass short, neat and even.  This also gives your lawn a very well manicured and orderly appearance. Many people consider it to be a matter of pride when it comes to the way that their landscape looks; so tending to it in this fashion brings satisfaction.

The other benefits that come with mowing on a regular basis may not be as immediately obvious, but they are just as important.  Mowing helps keep your lawn healthy and eliminate some of the pests from the grass at the same time. It also can ensure that various pieces of debris are picked up and are cleared every week; so that nothing really accumulates on the grass.

The first health benefit that is achieved is the way that the grass grows. In a landscape, resources are absorbed by the grass and used to grow.  By slicing the growth down to a short and uniform level on a regular basis, all of the growth gets an equal distribution of resources.  Due to this fact, mowing on a regular basis will allow the landscape to remain consistent in nature, because all of the resources that are gained from the sun and water are spread out evenly throughout. Consistency is important to both health and appearance, so making sure that resources are evenly distributed is very important.

The next health benefit comes with the concept of reinforcement and improvement over time. When the grass is cut, the hardiest and the healthiest shoots are the ones that do the best.  With every cut, the best shoots will proliferate making the grass much more visible in nature overall.

The last health benefit is that the fallen shoots of grass will help to fertilize the landscape. Even if a person is bagging when they are going through the process, some of the extra debris from the act will be returned to the earth.  This plant matter composts quickly and revitalizes the soil underneath it. In this way, mowing helps to keep everything fresh and green!
