What Happens When a Grass is not Properly Maintained?

It is said that grass that are not cut down will be prone to harmful things such as nails, thumb tacks and other sharp and pointed things. When these things are not removed in your lawn there is a great possibility of injuries and/or accidents to happen most especially to children. Thus, cutting your garden grass is very essential.



Also, we need to shorten the grass to prevent harmful insects from dwelling. Because grass is damp and moist, deadly insects like dengue and malaria-carrying mosquitoes may live and most probably be its breeding place. Although you cannot visibly see water in the grass, any small amount of stagnant water is a perfect breeding area for this blood-sucking insect.


Aside from preventing accidents to happen, grass cutting also helps your garden look beautiful. Looking in a clean and short grass is pleasing to the eyes. Obviously, people are not only the one who can benefit about having a properly cared grass. Grass can also acquire the advantages of being cut down. However, it must be mowed the right way so that it will not die or produce a terrible appearance. You know the 1/3 rule? This rule is used in almost all kinds of grasses in the field. This is the correct height to be cut down. Cutting the lawn more than 1/3 of its height is a big no-no because it can kill the plant.

Grass needs to be mowed on its exact schedule and exact height to avoid damage which can make your garden look disfigured. Clearly, it is very important to maintain the grass in the backyard and never take it for granted because in the long run, you will be the one who can benefit from it.
