Turf Maintenance Services
Mowing is the periodic cutting of a grass lawn to a specified height. The ability to tolerate mowing is one of the criteria that separate turfgrass from the rest of the grass species. Following the one-third rule, our mower's blade heights are adjusted to remove no more than the top third of the grass blades. This will encourage stronger roots. Mowing the lawn to a proper height can help eliminate both weeds and disease infestation, as well as assisting in the prevention of moisture loss in the turf. In our region, 3" - 4" is proper mowing height. Daily blade sharpening enables our machinery to create a clean, even cut when completed. Dull blades can rip or tear grass, further enhancing potential problems with weeds and disease. Mechanical trimming, smaller debris removal, and complete clean up are standard with our mowing service.
