Lawns and Grasses 101…
Never put grass clippings in a plastic bag. Grass clippings are full of nitrogen and many other nutrients that are beneficial to grass. As long as you mow often enough to remove no more than one-third of the grass blade, the easiest thing to do is just to leave clippings on the lawn. The pieces break down quickly and reduce the amount of fertilizer you have to use by as much as 25 percent. My own experience has proven that the clippings don’t cause thatch build-up.
Be aware that after dandelions have gone to seed, the stem tends to dry over several days making the stem “tough.” The result is there are usually stems that are not cut and are left behind until the following cut. Also note that the wide rear mower tires, and the dolly wheels on the cutting deck reach the dandelion stems before the cutting deck. This tends to “flatten” the stems, missing the cutting blades. Subsequently, the stems “pop” back upright. Some clients believe that the mower blades may be dull. This is not usually the case as explained above.
There are approximately 10,000 varieties of grasses throughout the World–Bamboo, rice and wheat are included. Grasses can be annual and or perennial including perennial herbs with fibrous roots an rhizomes. The Earth’s vegetation is composed of about 20% grasses and are even located at the North Pole. Eighty-percent of grass contains water and 90 percent of clipping is comprised of water.
The average lawn releases enough oxygen to sustain four families of four persons (16 people).
Lawns are healthiest when mowed at a height of 2.5 – 3 inches or longer depending on the type of grass and the mulched clippings are left on the lawn. Grass cut any less than two inches can result in significantly less
tolerance to diseases, insect damages, heat and drought. If cut too short, your lawn will be exposed to higher incidence of insects, diseases, and weeds. Lawns that are cut at proper length will resist drying out during hot, arid weather and will require less watering. Not only that, your lawn will look much better than lawns that is cut short.
Here is some information that I gleaned from a Forum on Commercial Lawn Maintenance. It was a science project at a high school in Wisconsin. The varieties of grasses are a mixture of Kentucky Blue Grasses.
Height of grass (inches) ———–2.5——–3.0——-3.5——-4.0
3-day Growth (inches) ————-0.3——0.51—–0.73——0.93
3-Day Height Increase (%) ——12%——17%—–21%——23%
Soil Temp. (F) ———————–79.1——75.9—–73.7——71.5
In particular, notice that soil temperature rise significantly in lawns that are cut short resulting in grass that usually requires much higher volumes of water.
Mowing Height—Most cool-climate grass types—such as fescue and Kentucky bluegrass—have a recommended cutting height between 2.5 and 3.5 inches. We generally cut grass at 3 to 4 inches because a lawn cut at this height will have a deeper root system and be more resistant to weeds and disease than shorter cut grass. During hotter and drier weather, a lawn cut at these heights will not brown out as quickly, and soil temperatures will be much lower.
Unfortunately, for reasons that do not make any sense to me, some people insist on shaving their turf right down to the dirt. Not only does the lawn look terrible, cutting grass very short is one of the best ways to kill grass. If you like grass cut to the dirt, call one of my competitor because I refuse to cut grass that short. It’s very hard on the grass and my equipment.
Mowing Frequency—Regular weekly or bi-weekly mowing helps a lawn resist weeds, insects and disease. Infrequent mowing causes too much grass to be removed at one time! Infrequently-mowed grass also produces a lawn that looks thin, spotty or burned. Grass cut weekly remain looking better between cuts than bi-weekly mowing.
As a general rule, we do not cut more than one-third of the length of your grass at a time. Grass will go into shock if too much is removed at a single cut.
Mulching vs. Bagging—Mulching grass clippings is an excellent way to return valuable nutrients and organic material to your lawn. Finely-cut clippings contain approximately 80% water, 5% nitrogen, 1% phosphorous and 2% potassium. The nitrogen component of grass clippings can provide about one-third of the yearly nitrogen requirement of a lawn. On the other hand, bagging clippings robs your lawn of these valuable nutrients from your grass.
have proved that clippings left on lawns result in healthier grass that is less prone to diseases. Mulched grass clippings also contain organic materials, fertilizer, nutrients and minerals, and significant amounts of nitrogen that are returned to the soil if the clippings are left on the lawn.
Quinte Grass/Lawn Cutting Service—when asked—will perform applications of slow release fertilizer which ensures steady vegetative growth, a dramatic increase in density of turf, improved root development, superior disease and weed resistance, winter hardiness and maintains that deep-green colour. Our fertilizers are slow release, which allow your grass a continuous and even-feeding throughout the season.
FAQ (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)
Why my lawn was not serviced this week?
If your lawn is not serviced on the scheduled day, the cause is usually poor weather. If your lawn is not serviced for an entire week, it is likely due to excessive sun with no precipitation. We take care to not stress already weak grass during these dry periods.
Can I request a specific day for service?
Yes, please request it before the mowing season begins, we try to fulfill your request. If the schedule is such that your request cannot be fulfilled we will work with you to find a solution.
Can I request to be skipped one week?
Absolutely. We appreciate it greatly if you can email or phone us at least 2 days in advance to your service day.
Can I request grass cutting Every Other Week?
If Your lawn grows very slowly, or if it hasn’t rained for many days, we can switch to cutting every-other-week. There will be no additional charge under these or similar conditions. However, I may charge 50% more for mowing E-O-W (1.5 times more). This is because extra growth means extra work, time spent at the property, cost, wear and tear on the equipment.
