With summer quickly approaching, it’s time to think about getting your lawn equipment ready for a summer of cutting and maintaining your Broadview Heights lawn. There are so many benefits to keeping a regular weekly lawn mowing schedule. At Rice’s Tree Service & Landscaping, we are aware of the many benefits of mowing your lawn weekly. Keep reading to learn about four of the most common ones. 

Why Should I Mow My Lawn Weekly?

1. Create a Strong & Healthy Yard

Mowing your lawn weekly stops the horizontal growth of your grass, which inevitably results in a thicker, healthier lawn. Weekly mowing also causes the healthiest grass shoots to thrive and grow while ridding your lawn of the weakest grass blades.

2. Create an Inviting Space

There’s nothing more comfortable in the summertime than walking across a thick, lush yard in your bare feet. Create an inviting space that family and friends will enjoy when you mow your lawn each week. Not only will the grass feel better under your feet, but it will look more uniform and healthy. 

3. Reduce Thatch

Thatch is a layer of organic material that builds up in a lawn around the base of the grass. It’s a combination of living and dead plant matter. If not taken care of properly, thatch can lead to lawn disease, pest infestations, and an overall unhealthy lawn. Weekly mowing keeps this thatch from building up. Plus, when you use the leftover grass clippings as mulch, it provides a nutrient-dense resource for the grass. 

4. Pest Prevention

An overgrown lawn is a satisfying habitat for many insects and pests. It provides optimal living space for chinch bugs, aphids, caterpillars, grubs, and more. A lawn that is mowed weekly is a healthy lawn and not an ideal environment for these annoying vermin.
