Mow Like a Pro!

Nothing catches the eye more than a beautifully manicured lawn. Fortunately, you don't have to do the hard work unless you want to! There are plenty of lawn maintenance companies who can keep your yard in tip top shape and weed free throughout the year so that you can have more free time. However, if you are one of those DIY types who loves doing your own lawn care, then one of the steps to having a beautiful yard is knowing how to mow like a pro. Having a beautiful green carpet on your front lawn takes time, patience and money spent on additional products like fertilizer, weed killer and of course a regular watering cycle. Aside from those basics, having a good quality lawnmower (electric or gas), an edger, a rake, a blower and bags to collect the trimmings and clean up after you cut your grass are all necessary tools. But there's another tip that the pros know that they aren't sharing. Their secret?.... Change the direction that you cut your grass each week! One week, cut east-to-west, the next week cut it north-to-south and the next week, cut it on a diagonal. Switching the direction that you mow your grass allows the blades of grass to grow straighter and helps to prevent rutting. Before you know it, your neighbors will be green with envy because your lawn will be the talk of the neighborhood! #Lawncare #grasscutting #lawnmower #fertilizer
