If you have have a lawn mower, great otherwise you will need to buy one. So let's start with a tip on the lawn mower itself:
Lawn Mowing Tip # 1: Type of lawn mower to use
Most homes tend to have a mix of lawn, shrubs, plants and trees. The actual area covered by the lawn tends to be small (usually between 400 and 600 square feet). If this applies in your case too, consider buying a reel lawnmower. This is a hand-powered mechanical cutter with two wheels in front and a handle to push at the back. You will be amazed at just how quickly (less than 30 minutes) this simple device can mow your entire lawn.
If you have a lawn that is larger than 1000 sq ft (but less than 2,000 sq ft), buy a electric powered mower preferably one with a mulching option. For the really large lawns a riding mower would be better.
Lawn Mowing Tip # 2: Prep the lawn mower
Prep the lawn mower! After every lawn mowing, the lawn mower should be cleaned and kept ready for the next you need to use it. If your lawn mower was not cleaned, get it ready by cleaning and clearing the blades. Also, there is a height adjustment that might need looking into. While cleaning the blades, make sure they are still sharp. Even a new lawn mower can have blunted blades if it was run over stones and twigs. Blunt lawn mower blades can be removed and sharpened – the store that sold you the lawn mower will have the phone number of the person who provides blade sharpening service.
Lawn Mowing Tip # 3: Adjust the lawn mowing height
During warm season the recommended height for grass is between 1/2 inch to 1 inch. During cool season, grass can have a height of about 3 inches to 3 1/2 inches.
The side of your Garden Maintenance will usually have some sort of latches or switches that raise of lower the height of the wheels (or in some cases, the blades).
Lawn Mowing Tip # 5: Prep the lawn for mowing
An average lawn might have all sorts of obstacles. There might be twigs, leaves, stones, toys, small lost items etc. If anything hard gets caught in the blades, it can dull the blades requiring down-time and expenses to get them sharpened again and also, the lawn mower would have to be recalibrated. All this is potentially time-consuming. The better option is to spend a few minutes examining your lawn and clearing it of any obstacles that are likely to damage the lawn movers blades.
