Properly mowed lawn is thicker and has deeper roots making it better equipped to combat weeds, insects and diseases.

Common mistakes are mowing too infrequently and cutting grass to short, which can result in discolored grass tips, brown spots and even damage to the lawn. Here are a few tips to help keep you on track:

• Start a regular mowing schedule and stick to it. Every 5-6 days should be fine. Never take off more than 1/3 of the leaf blade. Scalping a lawn can put serious stress on a lawn causing discoloration and other health issues. Keep mower at 2 1/2-3?. This is very important as we move into drier months. It will enable the blade to shade the crown of the plant, making it more heat tolerant. A sharp mower blade will help keep it from tearing the grass blade as it cuts. If tearing is present, grass blades will have a brown shredded tip giving the lawn a brown hazy look. Following these few steps will lead to a greener, thicker, and healthier lawn
