Nothing looks better than a recently mowed, healthy lawn – neatly groomed, precisely edged and geometrically patterned. It even smells good.
But proper mowing does more than make a lawn look good. It also keeps it healthy and more resistant to insects, diseases and weeds while ensuring it can withstand periods of drought and doesn’t need excessive amounts of water.

Even knowing all that, mowing your lawn can be a chore. True, it’s good exercise and there is a certain amount of enjoyment of accomplishing the job. But it’s still work and you may have better things to do on the weekend, like spend time with your family. From that standpoint, less mowing is a good thing.
There are also other important reasons why having to mow your lawn less frequently is a good thing. They have to do with improving the environment, something we all want to do.
According to the California Environmental Protection Agency Air Resources Board, a gasoline powered lawn mower running for one hour puts out the same amount of smog-forming emissions as 40 new automobiles running for an hour. These air pollutants can cause health problems and are suspected to contribute to climate change.
