Grass cutting tips and tricks
Cutting your grass correctly is simple but demanding. Once you have mastered the right way to mow, you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful, healthy lawn. Here’s our mini guide to how to mow.
Mow the main area first, then the edges
Always start by mowing the main area of lawn with a lawn mower if the terrain allows you to do so. Then you can tackle the edges of the lawn using a grass trimmer, for example, or the STIHL HSA 25 cordless grass and shrub shears.
Mulch mowing: mow and fertilise in a single step
A mulch mower finely chops the cut grass and feeds the particles back to the lawn as a source of valuable nutrients. This saves time and effort as you no longer have to empty your collection box or worry about fertilisers.
Do not walk on areas that haven’t been mowed
When you mow, you should only tread on areas of grass that you have already cut. If you flatten the areas that haven’t been mowed, the grass won’t have time to spring up again before being cut, and you will have an uneven result.
Overlap your lines for a neat result
To achieve an even cut without missing anything, move the mower in straight lines across the lawn. When you start a new line, overlap the previous line by around a wheel’s width.
