Lawn Maintenance & Mowing
Before we begin any form of maintenance, we will survey your land and give you an estimate, so that you have an idea of what the end cost will be.
Typically lawn mowing season begins in early May and continues through the end of October. But due to New England’s notably fickle weather, the season has the potential to start and end at various times.
Our lawn maintenance services will cut every corner of your lawn and trim along fences, walkways, walls, foundations, etc. Any dead grass and debris will be removed from your yard, patio, and driveway before we leave your property.
The professionals at Lola’s Landscape know the proper techniques to mowing a lawn and maintaining a healthy yard. The two biggest concerns for any lawn mowing are the height and the frequency. Knowing exactly how short to cut your grass, and how often you should mow your lawn will help keep you grass healthy.
A lawn’s height can be the difference between a healthy lawn and a lawn that has been invaded by weeds. That is the ideal length for your lawn is between two and three inches.
When grass is mowed either too short or too long, photosynthesis and growth is limited, allowing weeds to grab hold and prosper. If you are one of the many people who have a lawn suffering from weeds, do not fret! Here at Lola’s Landscape we offer weekly weeding services to go along with our mowing services, for an additional cost.
Every lawn is different, and every lawn grows differently. How quickly your grass grows will determine how often your lawn should be mowed.
During the mowing process, only about one third of the amount of grass shoot should be removed; this will help limit stressing turf.
If you let your grass grow too high and then decide to cut it all at once you can cause an excessive buildup of clippings, even causing physiological shock to your entire lawn.
