Preparing the Lawn and Mower

Correctly mowing your lawn is key to keeping your grass healthy and well-maintained. Choosing the right mower, using the right technique and maintaining your machine are all key to correctly mowing your lawn.

Choosing The Right Mower
Before you start to mow your lawn it is important to decide what type of mower you are going to choose. This can make a significant difference to the quality and ease of mowing depending on your particular needs and experience.

One popular option is to choose a gas mower. Gas mowers are generally cheaper than other lawnmowers and considerably sturdier, with longer life spans than most modern machines. For larger properties, those over one-third of an acre, self-propelled gas lawnmowers are also available and can be a convenient option to consider. Gas Mowers, however, require a little bit more maintenance in the long run as they have to be fueled with either gas or oil and have to be regularly tuned in order to stay working at their optimum level. Gas mowers can also pose start-up issues if the machine isn’t used regularly or in colder climates.

Corded electric machines are also a popular option. These machines are incredibly easy to operate and maintain. With virtually no tuning or other maintenance required and their light-weight exterior, they are the ideal option for most home owners. They are, however, corded and so impractical for larger areas. Cordless electric machines are also available but are only usable in properties that are smaller than one third of an acre.

In addition to the right lawn mower, string trimmers and lawn edgers must also be used to maintain a well manicured lawn. Once you have chosen your lawnmower, make sure you have it ready and prepared before you start mowing your lawn. The mower should be charged or oiled, depending on your choice of machine, and all safety hazards must be observed.

Preparing Your Lawn
Before you start mowing make sure you have a clean surface to work with. This means that all pipes, sprinklers, twigs, branches and leaves should be cleared away from the grass area. Once the area is clear, ecide how short your grass should be trimmed. This will depend both on the type of grass you are cutting and its state. Adjust your mower height accordingly. Then, decide on whether you will bag the trimmed grass or mulch it, which means adding it back to the grass for a fertilizing effect. These options should be available to choose from your lawnmower. Remember to never cut more than 1/3rd of the grass blade at one time.

Getting Down To It
Before you trim your lawn, test a small area of grass first. Ensure that the cutting height is correct by making sure you are trimming off no more than 1/3rd of the grass’s height. If the clipping is too visible it means the pushing force is too high. It is also important to steer the mower clear of plants and trees to avoid damaging them. Care must also be taken to ensure the mowing pattern is changed from time to time so as to keep the grass healthy. With corded mowers it’s important to keep the cord confined to the area that is trimmed and work outwards accordingly. Keep the trimmed grass in either a compost bin or keep it to be collected by the relevant authorities.

Edging and Trimming
If your lawn has a sidewalk or curb, it is important to trim the edges once you are done mowing the grass. There are a number of tools available for the job and can be chosen according to the user’s comfort. Areas around trees or bushes should also be trimmed using the appropriate tools.

Maintaining your Lawnmower
Make sure the blades of your lawn mower are always well sharpened. This will make the mowing process much easier and will cause less wear and tear to your machine. Depending on whether your machine is an electric or gas one, it should be either charged or oiled at all times. Regular tuning and maintenance will prolong the life of your machine and is always a better option that troubleshooting once it breaks down.
