It’s certainly no secret that we’ve had a lot of rain lately.  All that water is fine for ducks and sump pump sales, but not much else. I must admit though, my lawn is looking great!

Have you noticed how fast the grass has been growing?  Now, instead of once a week, it needs cutting every 3 or 4 days. I’m afraid my old lawn mower (pictured) may not last through the summer.

You don’t want to be a slave to your lawn.  Get out and enjoy your summer doing fun stuff!

Here are a few tips that can help:

  • Grass clippings can act as a natural fertilizer and bagging them is unnecessary.
  • Avoid setting your mower’s cutting height too low. Shorter grass means higher maintenance.
  • Vary your cutting pattern. Mow from side-to-side one week and front-to-back the next week.
  • Save your money and go easy on the fertilizer. Besides, it just makes the grass grow faster!
