The Do’s and Don’ts of Mowing Cumming , GA

Are you confident in your mowing skills? Mowing your grass isn’t just about improving the aesthetics of your lawn. There are mowing habits that can either help or harm the health of your lawn too. Here are some important guidelines on what you should and should not do when it comes to mowing:

  • DO keep your mower blades sharp
  • DON’T mow your grass when it’s wet
  • DON’T wait too long between mowings
  • DON’T mow too short (no more than ⅓ of the grass length)
  • DO mow often
  • DO participate in “grasscyling” (leaving grass clippings)
  • DON’T mow during peak hours of the day

Keep in mind that cutting your grass the wrong way or at the wrong time can cause stress to your lawn. You may notice a diseased turf, sunburned areas of grass, weeds and poor growth in your landscape. In Georgia, it is important to mow your lawn in a way that helps it withstand hot and dry temperatures of summer. While it is common to focus on how you irrigate and fertilize your lawn for the summer, it is equally important to consider your mowing habits.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
