The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming the grass is starting to grow and our lawn mowing crews are out and about throughout the Minneapolis area mowing lawns. This is also the time of year when a lot of our customers have some great questions about lawn mowing. Below are some of the top questions we receive from existing and new customers.
What Month Do You Start Mowing?
Typically we like to get started mowing lawns late in May or early in June. However, weather patterns can move these dates up or push them back.
What Is The Best Time Of Day To Mow?
The best time to mow your lawn is throughout the morning and evening hours. When the sun is at its peak, your lawn is busy photosynthesizing and trying to keep moisture in and mowing during this time can actually stress your lawn.
Is It Good To Cut The Grass Before It Rains?
Mowing your lawn right before it rains is actually the best time to mow. However, if you miss the rain and still need to mow afterwards, check to see if the blades of grass in your lawn are standing straight or bent over. If they are bent over, wait an hour or so until they are standing straight because cutting bent blades of grass can lead to a less clean cut.
Can You Cut Your Grass Too Often?
Yes you can. If you cut your grass too often can be just as damaging as letting it grow too tall. The rule of thumb here is to never cut more than one-third of the blade of grass.
