Lawn mowing is an essential task for every lawn, whether it’s in perfect condition or not. It needs a regular cut to stop from overgrowing.
Having a beautiful lawn with the greenest grass is the goal of all homeowners, sometimes it’s to have an enjoyable outdoor living space, sometimes it’s just to satisfy HOA regulations, and sometimes it’s to have the nicest yard on the block. But doing all the lawn mowing will take up a lot of your time, and in certain situations it requires experience and knowledge of working with different types of grasses and/or weeds.

Benefits of Our Lawn Mowing Services
Lawn cutting is an absolute must for any lawn. It helps the grass recover at a faster rate and grow more rapidly with enough nutrient concentration. If your lawn is on the larger side, it can be difficult for you to handle the grass cutting, especially without the proper equipment like a ride-on-mower.
Plus, without knowledge on proper grass cutting (i.e., how long your grass should be left for water retention or to prevent pest infestation) and the ideal time can prove to be a problem, and may even cause you to ruin your own grass.
Finishing Touches strives to resolve all your property’s problems to achieve a new lawn, completely free of issues. We are proud to provide the best lawn mowing services within the Snohomish and surrounding areas to help our clients create lawns they love.
Increasing Growth and Strength of Grass
It’s likely not a surprise for you to learn that unhealthy grass just doesn’t grow well, or green, for that matter. Additionally, lawn mowing strengthens the roots of the grass to make them more resistant to unfavorable conditions.
Not only does cutting grass provide uniformity in height, but also plays a role in nutrition distribution throughout the grassroots where nutrients are really needed. The more evenly cut your grass is, the easier it is for nutrients to soak into the soil.
Every yard owner wants to have grass with strong roots and that vibrant green shade. And we want to help you get that, too! The Finishing Touches team will provide you with all the benefits of our lawn mowing services.
Creates Mulch For Your Grass
Mulch is essential for your grass to obtain the nutrients for growth and development. Proper mowing keeps your lawn in tip-top shape and also creates a layer of organic mulch with the discarded grass clippings.
Finishing Touches knows the proper equipment and size to use. We also make certain that we cut at the right height to provide more nourishment and a flourishing lawn.
Pest and Weed Control
Taller grass provides breeding places for rodents like rabbits and bugs like grubs that destroy the beauty and health of your lawn. When the lawn is mowed regularly and grasses are trimmed, there will not be an infestation of pests because it’s not considered a safe place for them nest or breed.
Many homeowners cut their grass much too short, essentially killing their own grass. One of the most important parts of grass cutting is not to cut the grass beyond one-third of the grass blade’s height, as it will damage the roots.
When you hire Finishing Touches, you can trust that our regular lawn mowing services cut the grass at the perfect height so the healthy grass will grow rapidly, without playing host to any pests.
We look forward to the opportunity to help you with your upcoming project in these local areas:

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Lawn Mowing be Damaging to Your Lawn?
If not properly performed, lawn mowing can pose serious damage to different types of grasses. The best height for cutting the grass is a third of the height of the grass. If cut too short, your grass simply cannot grow properly.
Another potential problem is if your lawn mower’s blade is not sharp enough, the lawn mower will tear the grass blades rather than cut them. This will be noticeable because of the white tips left at the top of the grass after you mow.
Having sharp blades has its own risks, of course, and steel-toed boots are recommended. To avoid accidents and hazards, let the Finishing Touches professional landscapers do the work for you.
What is the Best Time For the Lawn Mowing?
While there are many factors that can come into play for answering this question, a general rule of thumb would be: the best time of day for lawn mowing, if you have the choice, is mid-morning. This is because the grass dries a little bit from the morning dew or irrigation water. Aim to do your lawn cutting between 8 am and 10 am if you can.
Obviously, this timing isn’t possible most of the time, and you don’t need to stress about it. We do mowing throughout the day and there are many other more important factors to try to get right, which is why we offer lawn maintenance plans with full lawn nutrition plans to help your turf thrive all year long.
As for timing your mowing in seasons, it’s good to start as soon as you notice your grass getting high in the spring. You should carry on weekly or bi-weekly according to the rate of growth throughout the summer and fall seasons, in order to keep your grass looking its best. And, once the ground has had its first frost, it’s time to prepare for Winter.
