Mowing

Dream Lawns offers both residential and commercial mowing. Our mowing service includes line trimming, edging and blowing. We trim or edge along foundation of your home or office, fence lines, trees, flower beds, sidewalks and curbs. Our powerful blowers add the finishing touch by removing debris from the hard surfaces around your home.

Mowing Frequency

Frequent mowing helps a lawn resist weeds, insects and disease. Infrequent mowing causes too much grass to be removed at one time. Infrequently mowed grass also produces a lawn that looks thin, spotty or burned. As a general rule, we never cut more than one-third of the length of your grass at a time.

Mowing Height

Most cool season grass types such as fescue and bluegrass have a recommended cutting height between 2 and 3 inches. We generally cut grass at 3 inches because a lawn cut at this height will have a deeper root system and be more resistant to weeds and disease than shorter cut grass.

Mulching vs Bagging

Mulching your clippings is an excellent way to return valuable nutrients to your lawn. Finely cut clippings contain approximately 80% water, 5% nitrogen, 1% phosphorous and 2% potassium. The nitrogen component of grass clippings can provide about one-third of the yearly nitrogen requirement of a lawn. On the other hand, bagging clippings eliminates these valuable nutrients from your lawn.

We sharpen the blades on our machines daily so that our clients’ lawns receive the absolute cleanest cut possible. Dull mower blades will not only make your grass appear jagged and uneven they will also make your lawn more susceptible to disease. By sharpening our mower blades daily we help prevent such things from happening.

Clients with smaller properties will be pleased to know that all of our mowing crews are equipped with various sizes and types of state of the art machinery so that they can cater to the specific needs of each individual site
