Lawn Care Lessons for Beginners – Mowing and Watering

Lawn Care Service Tips and Tricks for a Healthy Garden

If you are new to lawn care and yard work, then we might be able to help you out a little bit. This article is for new home owners, who are yet to discover the advantages of having a yard and the responsibilities that come along with it.

It’s obvious that your lawn will not look good if you don’t maintain it, so if you don’t have the time, don’t bother with it, and just call the lawn and garden services. If you want to give it a shot, you need to know the basics of watering and mowing. That’s something every home owner has to be able to do.

We will start with mowing:

  • Mowing is the most basic of all maintenance services. Of course, it’s only achievable with the proper tools. It will be quite difficult to mow a lawn with a scythe, so get a reliable mower and make sure you set it right. It’s important that you don’t cut the grass too low. Don’t take more than 2/3 of the leaf length, because it will make your grass weaker and more vulnerable to diseases. If you want to be sure you’re doing the job right, consult a lawn care service, or read a bit about the exact type of grass you have.


  • Irrigation is essential. It is both very simple and very complicated. It’s simple because all you have to do is basically the same thing every day. The complicated part is knowing how to do it so that you don’t have any complications.
  • There are several things you can do wrong in irrigation. One of them is watering during the wrong time of the day. The best moment for that is early in the morning before the sun is up. It has to be cool enough for the water to soak into the soil, otherwise the heat will evaporate it and your lawn won’t get enough moisture.
  • Another rookie mistake is overwatering. If you water too much, you may create a runoff, and your water will go down the drain instead of feeding your soil. If you overwater frequently, your lawn will become soggy and swampy, which creates an excellent environment for growing mold, weeds and breeding insects.
