As the first few warm days of spring bring forth the promise of enjoying the outdoors for things like bike riding, hiking, camping and playing golf, it is also time to get ready to spend time on your property doing things like grilling, gardening, and lawn mowing.
Mowing falls into a large spectrum for people. Some look forward to it others hate it. However, no matter where you stand on lawn mowing, it is an important key to keeping a lawn healthy and beautiful and all the advantages that go with it. A nice lawn increases property value, helps cool the landscape and even the home, and provides a fun and comfortable place to enjoy the outdoors by walking right out the front or back door.
A properly mowed lawn is greener, stronger, and more durable than the exact same lawn being mowed with less diligence. The problem is good mowing practices means a great deal more than mowing when the lawn gets long.
What are the keys to success, beyond shortening the length of the grass blades, when mowing?
To better understand what other factors go into healthy mowing practices it is best to look at something personal: cutting hair and shaving. Do you want a sharp razor when you shave? Would you prefer sharp scissors for a hair cut? Sure, you can cut your hair or shave with dull implements, but the chances for uneven cuts, nicks, and missed spots raise as the dullness of the blades go up, so does the pain and recovery time. Grass is the exact same way. A dull mower blade doesn’t cut the grass it rips it. Ripped grass is more prone to disease, drought stress, and insect damage. Why is this? Let’s start with the most obvious; ragged ends of grass blades cannot heal as fast, contributing to moisture loss. As moisture loss increases so does drought stress.

Are you seeing a sea of yellow instead of a green lawn or are other weeds already getting under your skin?

Weeds this year have come much earlier than we are used to. Much of this is because of the late winter and early spring with warm weather followed by late March moisture. The stress to the yards from this weather pattern prevented the yards from choking out weeds while giving the weeds the needed moisture to kick start a massive early growth.
Pre-emergent barriers applied now can cut down on annual weeds such as spurge and crabgrass. Even as we fight these weeds, a new crop of other weeds is also starting to show: the winter annuals.
Winter annual weeds are the most overlooked type of weeds. These germinate in fall, spend winter as young vegetative plants, then shift into prime-growth mode as soon as the weather warms in spring. Depending on the weather, some of these continue to grow slowly even in December, January and February. Last winter, because of the dry conditions, some weeds didn't even stop growing at all. Winter annual weeds die off when hot weather arrives, but not before dropping new seed that sits dormant in summer and germinates when weather cools. Examples of weeds that sprout in fall include; Henbit, Dead Nettle, Common Chickweed, Prickly Lettuce, annual Bluegrass, Cheatgrass, Wild Mustard, Corn Speedwell, Horseweed, Shepherd's Purse and annual Sow Thistle. Fall sprouting weeds get started as early as late summer and continue to germinate from early fall more or less until Thanksgiving. Some of these weeds can be targeted now before they go to seed and create a new crop for later this season.

The professionals at Mountain High can help get control of these weeds. Now is the time to get control of the weeds before they seed and cause a new round of weeds to plague the summer months when yards should be enjoyed. http://ow.ly/i/tCuVL
