How Often To Mow Lawn

The frequency of mowing your lawn depends on several factors such as rainfall amounts, soil type, grass type, fertilization, and also how much time you have available for the task. Here are some general guidelines to help you establish the optimum mowing schedule for your lawn:

- During spring, a general rule of thumb is to mow your lawn once every two weeks, especially during April and May.
- As we move into the summer months like June, July and August, you’ll want to mow the lawn once a week or every few days, depending on how quickly your grass grows and if you prefer a close cut.
- Over the summer you’ll generally mow your lawn every 4 to 6 days. If there is a lot of rain or if you fertilize heavily, you’ll want to mow every 4 days to keep your grass from getting too long. However, when the weather is hot and generally dry, you’ll be safe to mow either every 5 or 6 days.
