Spring Lawn Mowing Advice
Springtime is here, which means you’re about to have a lot more lawn mowing to do. The rain is going to help your grass grow like crazy, which is a good thing, but also hard to manage. But with the right know-how, you can make sure your lawn looks great all spring. Today in the Nixa Lawn Service blog we’ll give you some lawn mowing and lawn care tips for springtime.
Get Your Mower Ready
The first thing you’ll want to do is make sure your mower is ready after being stored away for the winter. Make sure your mower is clean, the oil is fresh, and the blades are sharp. You should also put a fresh tank of gas in it. Once your mower is clean and ready to go, then you can move on to the next step.

Make Sure to Clear Your Lawn of Debris
Over winter, your lawn may have accumulated a number of large sticks and twigs, patches of dead grass, and other debris. If this is the case, you need to clear these things out before going over it with your mower. If you don’t, you risk dulling your mower blades. Simply picking up the twigs and sticks will work, but for the dead grass you can use a rake to remove any patches.
Lawn Mowing Tips
Once you’re finally ready to do some lawn mowing, you need to make sure you’re doing it right. For spring, it’s a good idea to cut the lawn at the highest level your mower allows. Removing one-third of the blade length is a good rule to follow. You don’t want to cut the grass too short in spring because the longer grass is able to create deeper roots. You’ll also probably have to mow fairly often in the spring, depending on how much rain you’re getting. Just pay attention to when the grass is getting a little longer.
