As a nation we are spending more and more of our valuable leisure time tending to our gardens. But according to leading lawn care experts TruGreen, despite our obsession with our gardens, most of us still don’t mow our lawns nearly enough during the summer months.

TruGreen technical expert Andy White says; “Mowing higher but more frequently at the moment will improve the quality and appearance of your lawn.”

“At the moment our lawns are growing faster than at any other time of the year and the grass plant naturally puts all its energy in to growing taller. So for the next few weeks try mowing your lawn as often as you can, around twice a week if possible, but keep the height around 1½ to 2 inches. This will train your grass to put its energy into producing a thicker, stronger grass plant, rather than just growing taller.”

“In no time at all you should start to see an improvement, with the lawn achieving better ground coverage and a healthier appearance. It also has the added benefit of making it harder for any weeds to get through.”

“Another tip which makes a real difference to your lawn is to keep the blade on your mower sharp. A blunt blade will damage the grass plant and leave it susceptible to disease where as a sharp blade leaves a nice clean cut.”
