Lawn Mowing

Lawn Mowing

Turf grasses are generally mowed to maintain a manicured look for your lawn. To achieve and maintain the best turf is not only a chore but an art. It entails mowing turf at appropriate heights and frequencies to ensure actively growing and attractive turf. When mowed too short, turf can become open with a poor root system, allowing weed invasion. Tall turf is often considered to be unattractive portraying an unkempt appearance. Therefore it is important to find the balance that produces attractive, healthy turf in an efficient manner.

MW Lawn and Landscape, Inc. can expertly manage your lawns needs for you. The lawn is mowed on a diagnal basis in a striped pattern. In addition, the lawn is gone over in two directions to encourage an upright and evenly manicured lawn. Clippings are not bagged unless otherwise specified by the homeowner. Returning clippings to the turf has several benefits. When clippings are returned, a small quantity of organic matter and substantial quantities of mineral nutrients are returned to the soil, contributing to improved soil conditions.

However, if your lawn is especially long we do recommend bagging as long clippings may contribute to thatch build-up. Our blades are set to a height of 3" while mowing the lawn unless otherwise specified by the home owner. Finally, our blades are sharpened daily to prevent the grass from tearing and looking ragged.

Fertilizer Program

Lawn Mowing

Home lawns can be improved through the proper use of fertilizers. Excessive amounts or the wrong type of fertilizer will not provide an effective treatment for your lawn. The proper amount and scheduling of fertilizer application depends on a variety of factors including the source of nitrogen, soil type, type of turf grass, and weather. For fertilizer and pesticide applications, it pays to hire trained professionals who know when and how to apply these chemicals in a manner safe to you, your neighbors, the plants, and the environment. Our Company is State Certified and Licensed to apply pesticides and fertilizers and are trained in applying them. Rather than taking the risk of damaging your lawn let MW Lawn and Landscape, Inc. handle this maintenance for you. We recommend the following Six Stage Granular Program:

Aerating, Verti-cutting and Seeding

Aerating, Verti-cutting and Seeding

Soil compaction can be caused by aging lawns or lawns that sustain heavy use . Soil compaction is typically most severe in poorly drained or wet areas. Compaction greatly reduces the space within the soil that would normally hold air. Roots require oxygen to grow and absorb nutrients and water. Compaction has a negative impact on nutrient uptake and water infiltration, causing a physical barrier to root growth.

Thatch is a layer of material between the green blades and active roots of a lawn. It builds-up faster than normal if a lawn has been over-watered or over-fertilized. If the thatch layer is too deep, keeping a lawn healthy can become a challenge.

Soil compaction and thatch are both culprits to a deteriating lawn. To combat these processes MW Lawn and Landscape, Inc recommends either Aerating or Verticutting along with seeding.

Aerating and or Verti-cutting can benefit your lawn by:

  • Decreasing Soil Compaction.
  • Penetrating Heavy Thatch.
  • Increasing Water, Nutrient and Oxygen Movement into the Soil.
  • Decreasing Water Run-off.
  • Enhance Soil and Root Growth.
