Lawn Mowing can increase the value of your home by $39

The lawn is considered to be an asset of a house. A well-maintained lawn can provide an aesthetic appeal to a yard and can be used for recreational purposes either with family or friends. However, maintaining a lawn is a challenging task. It should be regularly watered, and the grass covering it must be trimmed and kept at a height that is pleasing to the eyes. To achieve this, Sterling lawn mowing should be done frequently. The grass on a lawn that has not been mowed for a period of time will have the tendency to grow tall and sparse and will proceed to seed. If you do not have enough time to fulfill this task, you may want to hire a professional from a reliable Sterling lawn mowing service near you.

Fair price breakdown

The average cost of Sterling lawn mowing and maintenance starts at $17 up to $86 depending on the size of the lawn. However, this price may fluctuate if you have areas of your lawn that are hard to reach or have a ditch or lake. Mowing these areas relatively costs higher because the lawn mower has to be moved at such an angle that it can cover the edges of the lawn near the water. You may also be charged an additional fee if you have flower beds, trees, and other exterior items that will require the person doing the mowing to be extra precise. Some Sterling lawn mowing services charge additional fees for extra labor like trimming shrub edges and raking or bagging leaves on your lawn. However, there are lawn mowing service providers that offer a discount if you regularly hire or get into a contract with them to take care of your lawn.

Kenai Peninsula Borough County Lawn Mowing FAQ

As long as the grass is actively growing, you need to keep mowing. Only low enough that you do not cut more than one-third of the grass blade at a time. Cool season grass is on top of its growth during spring, meaning that you will need to mow the lawn frequently during this season. Keep in mind that some of the fertilizers used in lawns will provide a certain amount of nutrients that will be absorbed by the turf but will not be immediately utilized by the grass. This may result in excessive top growth. When there is high growth, mowing will need to be done multiple times a week.

When you are regularly mowing and not removing one-third of the height of the grass blade, the clippings can just be left on the lawn to provide extra nutrients to the grass when they eventually decay. However, it is important to check the thickness of the thatch when you are leaving clippings on your lawn. A thatch that is bigger than an inch may hinder the clippings from getting into the soil. If this is the scenario, you may need to bag the clippings.

You can stop mowing when the grass blades stop growing. Cool season grass stops its growth when the temperature drops below 40F or exceeds 90F. On the other hand, the growth of the roots will continue all throughout fall until winter.
