What´s the best way to mow the lawn?

Mowing Patterns

Many people mow in the same direction each time they mow. It is important that you mow your lawn in a different pattern each time you cut your grass. If you do not, the wheels of your mower can compact the ground over time. This will keep the grass from growing properly, as well as make little trenches in your yard where water may pool.

Cutting your grass in different patterns can also help to control the runners of creeping grasses that try to invade your lawn.
