2011 was one of the driest years on record for much of the southern U.S. Early indications are that the trend may continue this year. Periods of low natural rainfall reminds everyone of the need to think about sustainable landscaping practices that conserve water while ensuring lawn quality. Mow More Supplies offers several tips for commercial lawn mowing contractors to keep their client’s lawns green even under the most difficult conditions.
Sustainable Mowing Practices You Can Use:
1.Make sure you use sharp lawn mower blades that will cut the grass cleanly. Dull blades tear and shred the grass blade leaving a dull brown cast across the lawn.
2.Use top quality commercial lawn mower blades made from hardened steel that hold their edge for an extended period of time.
3.Sharpen your mower blades frequently. Best practices suggest that they should be properly sharpened after 8-12 hours of cutting time.
4.During times of drought, raise your lawn mower blade cutting height. Increasing the height that you cut your lawn at by just one inch will improve the lawn’s ability to tolerate stress during dry periods.
5.Mow frequently enough so that you don’t remove more than 1/3 of the grass blade at each lawn mowing. Removing more than 1/3 at a time can cause extreme stress to the lawn and result in early browning.
6.Use commercial lawnmower mulching blades that chop the clippings into small pieces which will fall through to the soil. This grass mulch helps shade the soil and maintains moisture that will keep your grass greener.
The general rules of thumb for sustainable best mowing practice under severe conditions are to mow high, mow frequently, and allow the clippings to return to the lawn. Following these few simple tips will make for both happy lawns and customers even under the most difficult weather conditions.
