Basics of Proper Mowing, Common Cool-Season Grasses in the Region, & Services Included During Mowing Sessions

Proper mowing is critical for a lawn to thrive. The three most important basics of lawn mowing include:

  • Mowing at the proper height
  • Mowing on a consistent basis
  • Keeping mower blades sharp

When we mow your lawn, we are careful not to remove more than one-third of the blade height in a single mowing session. Cutting grass too closely can harm the blades, and not cutting enough of it can impede the ability to absorb light, air, and water which are all key elements of the photosynthesis process. We always sharpen our mower blades to ensure that your grass is cut properly. Dull mower blades will tear grass, which can weaken the blades and make them more susceptible to disease or insect infestations.

Mowing sessions in central Iowa areas like Des Moines, West Des Moines, and Ankeny start in spring, around late March or early April, and go through October on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, depending on weather conditions.

Mowing services include mowing, string trimming, edging, and blowing around your entire property. A typical mowing session looks like the following:

  • First, we mow the turf to get a nice, even cut across the entire lawn.
  • Next, we string trim around hard to reach areas such as around your house, trees, fence, and any of your hardscaping elements.
  • After that, we edge to create a sharp, defined line between your grass and any bordering elements like walkways or your driveway. Edging creates a manicured look to your property.
  • Last, we use a blower to remove all grass clippings from your driveway and walkways.

For one-time maintenance services for a distressed or overgrown property, we have tougher equipment to break through tall grasses, low areas, wooded areas, and more.
