I am terrible lol. I know I should cut my grass more, but I usually wait until it's really long before I even worry about it. I have a pretty big lawn, so I don't want to do it too often. I honestly only do it once a month. Is that bad?
That is bad for the grass and the roots ... on most grasses you should not cut more than 1/3 it's length at each cutting...
There are times during the spring that I will mow every 4 or 5 days... KennyV
I tend to mow in response to the weather. As the rain is unpredictable I can't afford to delay if it is time to cut it. Nothing worse than having the rain come before I can get to it and the entire lawn seems to sprout another inch as a result. If I let it get long it is really hard work and, as was said, damaging to the grass. (Plus the neighbours would be mighty gossipy!)
Here in Louisiana the grass grows so fast during the summer you almost have to mow twice a week. Normally I mow once a week but if it rain delays me for a day or two, it gets pretty high and tough to cut. Right now it's been so dry and cool I can do it every other week. We don't get much of an off season here. I'll probably mow for the last time this year in late November and start back up in late February!
I'm getting ideas on which one to buy when I retire
Re: How often do you cut?
It looks like climate has something to do with the frequency then. In the Philippines, I don't see mowers in action as often as you do it there in the USA. Twice a week looks amazingly frequent. No wonder mowers are absolutely useful in your part of the world.
