The grass is greener on the other side

It is greener on the other side

   You know that saying! dont you ???

It does hold some truth. Believe it or not but today during the heat wave we are having, I must have seen close to 50 people cutting there grass in the heat ,in the sun close to 90 to 95 degrees. And tomorrow its supposed to be 95 as the high and im sure I will see more people cutting there grass. I know its weird in a way.
You see the thing is cutting your grass in a heat wave or anything close to 90 degrees is the last thing youd want to do.

    Actually you would be doing more harm than good as it would be restricting the grass plants from being able to produce energy to grow.And would turn a  your lawn  a bit spotty and yellowish brown. So the best thing to do is to cut the lawn at night if rain is in the forecast the next day or just wait a week to 10 days until the heat wave is over.

My neighbors want that golf putting green look

I do not know what the fascination is with the putting green look but ,both of my neighbors love that putting green look below.

And my other neighbor

If you notice the neighbors lawn is in the foreground its a lighter green than mine because he keeps cutting it every few  days it never has time to develop and the same thing with my other neighbor you see my dark green lawn and his lawn again is a lighter shade of green.

    They must cut there lawn like 2 times a week sometimes three and even during the drought and heat wave. So dont let this be you.

   Me I prefer the soccer field look with that nice, lush,, dark green, dense, lawn that youd want to walk barefoot on opposed to a thin and fine textured putting green. I guess its up to you. They do say that beauty lies in the beholder so if a putting green floats your boat then hey go for it.

   Im more into the health of the grass rather than it looking manicured every 3 days so if you have one of these neighbors who cuts twice a week during the heat wave  youll have the last laugh cause his lawn will be a mess while yours will still be thick and lush and dark green. So if you want to keep your lawn looking nice during the hot dog days of summer,make sure to have a look at my month to month plan .

I just looked at the forecast and the heat wave is supposed to be over by Sunday 3 more days so I guess ill cut the lawn  Sunday night. I can put up with it being a bit long and messy as I know im doing the right thing by not cutting it ill post a new pic on Monday so you guys can see.

Grass Cutting

A few tips about what else cutting the grass#1 Keep it high to get that nice lush lawn always remember to wait until your grass is four inch high before you mow your lawn. so it will always be nice and lush like this 

this was actually taken yesterday.
I know its hard to wait until its four inches for some of us if you cant wait then the next trick is to cut twice a week in spring on the highest setting. Then in summer slow down the cutting to just cut once a week or every week and half if theres no rain.

   If your not sure when to cut to keep it high then make sure you dont mow in the summer until your grass looks like this
When your grass is high like this its a good indicator that it is around 4 and half inches high and needs to be cut so use this as your indicator in the summer.

*most lawn mowers have 6 or 5 settings if your lawn mower only has 5 settings then put it up one more notch so its at its highest setting so the blade is at its highest then either cut the lawn twice a week in…
