If you have lawn mower cutting rollers, each month you should change direction.

For mowers with four wheels, you have to overlap each time and ensure the wheels are not hitting the same spots repeatedly. Grass cutting that is repeated on the same line will produce ruts and tramlines!

Remember that it is wet or long grass that slows your pace and not the speed of the blades.

If you find you are ‘scalping’ the grass in some places (high spots) raise the height of cut.

Cut slopes and shady areas of the lawn slightly higher than the rest of the grass.

If the grass has a ‘silvery shine’ or ‘rough’ look after mowing, it could be that the cutting blades require sharpening.
