Landscaping Tips – Know How to Mow

Less grass and proper landscaping is more beneficial for trees and plants, the environment and your budget. But if you do have a lawn, follow these simple care tips.

  • Just a little higher.
    For most South Florida turf grasses, at least 2-3 inches is a good height. Keeping your grass this high promotes healthier roots for a greener, pest resistant and drought resistant lawn.
  • Don’t be dull.
    Sharp mower blades cut easier and reduce tearing that can weaken the grass.
  • Use a mulching mower.
    Some mowers have special blades that chop grass into fine clippings. This will eliminate bags and bags of waste grass and automatically fertilize your soil the natural way!
