Mowing your yard may seem like a mundane and brainless task, but for optimal aesthetic beauty and health of your turf certain things need to be considered. The height of cut is an extremely important consideration. Most homeowners view a short turf to be more attractive. However, turf cut extremely short stresses the turf and makes it more susceptible to disease. I recommend for cool weather grasses (grasses that look best in the spring and fall) such as bluegrass, ryegrass, fescue and buffalograss, they be mowed between 2 to 3 inches in height. Similarly, warm weather grasses (grasses that look best in the summer) like bentgrass be cut 1/4 to 3/4 inch in height and zoysiagrass be cut 1 to 1.5 inches in height.

Another consideration is whether to mulch or remove the grass clippings? If your yard has been properly maintained with routine lawn aeration performed, I recommend mulching in most situations. In mulching the grass is cut and then re-cut into very fine clippings, which drop back to the ground. The clippings or small enough that they do not accumulate on top of the living grass, but instead fall back through the grass to the ground. Mulching is extremely important in arid climates like Denver, as it helps the soil retain moisture, reducing water consumption needs. Also the mulch acts as a fertilizer, reducing your fertilizer needs. If the thatch build up is too high, it is recommended that the grass clippings not be mulched, but instead be removed from your lawn. I will provide you with a recommendation on whether to mulch or not mulch if you like.


Mowing of the grass to the owners specified height, as well as mulching or leaf raking as directed by the homeowner. All objects will be trimmed around with a weed eater.


Provide access for mowing. Instruct A-1 Home Helper as to the desired height of cut and whether grass is to be mulched or raked. I can give you recommendation on this if you like. Relax, for you will be receiving a professional mowing service!
