How to do your lawn with ease

Taking care of your lawn is something that we can never ease out of doing. If so, you won’t have the most attractive looking lawn on the block. But there are ways to make it not so tedious. So in this post, I plan to discuss how to do your lawn with ease making your job a lot more enjoyable.

Your First Option

The easiest way is to hire someone to come out and cut your lawn on a schedule ensuring that it is maintaining at the proper height and is never allowed to grow so tall that you end up cutting off more of the blade than you should.

Depending on the type grass you have, the cutting height should be around 2 to 3 inches. But when cutting you want to avoid cutting off more than 1/3 on the grass blade. This can put your lawn under stress and it has to work hard at recovering.

Hiring a lawn maintenance service will ensure your lawn is on a regular cut schedule which will help you prevent these type of things from happening.

Your Second Option

As you would have guessed, do it yourself. If you are going to do it yourself you should know to have your equipment serviced and you should have drained all the gas out of the equipment for the off-season storage.

The most important part of this is to make sure your equipment is operational and the blades are nice and sharpened for a clean cut on your grass blades.

A lot of people like getting out there and doing their own lawns over hiring someone or they have kids they assign that chore to. Either way, you have to keep a good cutting schedule and make sure you are cutting properly it as well.

Ways To Make Lawn Work Easy

The first step to making it easy is to keep the cutting schedule in place because it will lessen the amount of work on weed-eating and the need to edge. Your lawn will love you for it. It will display a more turf like look this way.

Also make sure you have all you need when you start so you don’t have to stop and go to get things like weedeater string, gas & oil. I don’t know about you, but if I can get out there and cruise through it that makes it easier for me.

This next way I am going to speak on is definitely a plus for the homeowner who does his own yard.

I have to use gas equipment for my business because I might do 3 or 4 yards a day. But if you are only doing your own lawn, lithium powered equipment will make your job easier in quite a few ways.

 

If you choose to use lithium powered equipment you eliminate the servicing cost that is needed for gas equipment. And you won’t have to make sure you got gas and oil prior to starting.

Lithium equipment is much lighter than gas equipment making it physically easier to maneuver around obstacles and it stores easier when not in use. The one thing I like is the ease of starting by just a push of a button.

There are many good manufacturers like EGO, Kobalt, Greenworks, Black & Decker, Sun Joe and many others that have great products. EGO is considered the leader in equipment power and battery life. Click Here to view some of the equipment that is available.

If you have not considered trying lithium powered equipment but you plan on doing your own lawn, you should take a look at the video below.

Conclusion

Either way that you choose to take care of your lawn this season, make it easier on yourself by keeping it maintained on a regular schedule. If you want to reduce the physical strain on yourself try lithium powered lawn equipment.

And most definitely if you are trying to be eco-friendly convert to lithium powered equipment because you will not be using gas or oils.

Or you can call someone like myself who will routinely come out and cut it for you every 10 to 14 days depending on the rainfall which determines how fast your lawn grows.

I hope this was some valuable information for you and if there are any questions please let me know in the comments section and I will do my best to make any concerns clear.

  1. Thanks for this information! Is there a certain angle you should cut the grass or does this not matter? Also, are there different cutting times per month for different types of grass?

    1. Hi, Nicole. The mower should cut at the height you want it at evenly. There are two types which are the warm season and cool season grasses. They require different cutting heights depending on what grass you have. Click here to see cutting height information.

  2. I LOVE the idea of lithium-powered equipment. I am a big gadget guy. LOL. Believe it or not, I like the old fashion push powered mower with the rotating blades.
    I have a small property so it makes it fun. My neighbor has a much larger corner property and thinks I am crazy. When I come to my senses lithium powered equipment will be my choice.

    1. Hey, I am not mad at you Tony. We all have our preference for things that we just like and can’t let go of. They will get the job done too just a little more effort is needed. But if you do decide to change please come back to visit us.

  3. I must say I’m lucky, the apartment building I live in has a small fee between all tenants to pay for the lawn service.
    But I find your post very useful, Its the first time I heard of lithium-powered equipment, less difficult than the traditional mowers I used a few years back.
    I will check out more of your tips as the place I’m planning to move to, is more independent and I will have to either hire or do the lawn myself.
    Thanks for the info 🙂

  4. Hi there. Thank you for sharing this article.
    I live in Texas and you probably know, in the summer season it is very hot! I have a small house but a big garden with a lot of space. Well, it is hard to take care of all the plants and everything in the heat but I still love it. I am thinking to buy a new mowing machine. I have had my old one for over six years and it still has a pull cord, which is very annoying, because its always in my way.

    1. Understood. If you think you have an average size yard and can finish mowing it in an hour or less, one of the lithium lawnmowers will work just fine for you. There will be no more gas, noise or pre maintenance to worry about. Plus you will have a pushbutton start instead of the pull start. I hope you find what you need.

    1. Thank you so much. I try to give my customers another part of my business by offering useful information and a secure way to shop online for any products or equipment they may need.
