Mowing correcting is one of the most important practices in keeping your lawn healthy. If you never mowed your lawn, your yard would look more like a pasture. But the simple act of mowing isn’t what makes a lawn look good. Mowing at the correct height and mowing recurrence, determine how healthy and attractive your lawn looks.

Grass is similar to most plants — if you clip off the maturing points (for grass, it’s in the crown, where the new leaves develop), the plants and roots will branch out and become denser, which in this case, turns thousands of individual grass plants into a tightly woven turf or a lawn.

One way to mow a lawn is to trim the edges first, which puts the clippings back into the grass to be mulched by the mower. The other option is that you can also mow first and then trim, which takes advantage of the mower’s large cutting area to reduce time spent trimming. Either way, continue to do the same routine each time you mow, for consistent grass growth.
