Lawn mowing as weed control

An Easy Way To Stop Weeds Spreading

Regular mowing not only aids in keeping our lawns and gardens tidy, it has other benefits as well. Such as promoting the tillering effect - when a lawn will thicken up its green leaf, while slowing down the growth of its runners and reducing its rate of spreading. Another great benefit is its assistance in the reduction of many weed types.


A Simple Trick Really

By mowing regularly, we can remove the flowering stalks and seed heads that would have propagated the next generation of weeds in our lawns, often removing the flower before seeds even form. It's that simple, and it is an effective method to control many different weed types.


Lawn Mowing Will Not Control All Weeds

While it's a great and simple trick to control weeds from spreading, and in keeping our lawns beautiful into the next season, and in reducing our dependance on herbicides - lawn mowing as weed control will not work for all weed types. Unfortunately some weeds form their seeds below mowing height, others seeds are very small and profuse, and won't be caught or removed by mowers, and other weeds may have underground runners or corms. As for them, we should to stay with our standard practices of weed control, to hand pull if we can - or to otherwise use the correct herbicide for the weed type we are trying to eradicate from our lawns.
