Mowing and Trimming a Lawn (page 2 of 2)

Tips

Keep your mower blades sharp to prevent damage to the grass blades. Ragged cuts invite disease and make the lawn look brown.

Alternate mowing directions each time you mow to help keep grass growing upright and to prevent soil compaction. Mow at a 45- or 90-degree angle to your last pattern.
