Residential Lawn Mowing
RESIDENTIAL LAWN MOWING SERVICES IN SIOUX CITY, IA
One of the keys to a professionally manicured lawn is to mow your lawn regularly. A proper mowing schedule will cause less stress on your turf, allowing it to look it’s best. But there is more to properly caring for your lawn than just mowing it consistently. We train our lawn mowing experts in the best practices for maintaining yards here in Iowa. For example, we stagger our mowing pattern, line trim around flowerbeds, trees, fences, and other obstacles in the lawn, edge with a steel blade edger, and we are sure to blow off your sidewalks and driveway. Our commitment to being a quality lawn mowing company doesn’t stop after we mow your lawn. To deliver the perfect cut with each service, we meticulously maintain our equipment by cleaning our mowing decks and sharpening the mower blades consistently.
Lawn Mowing Services Include:
- Mow the entire yard
- Line trimming (weed-eating) around trees, flowerbeds, fences, and other vertical obstacles in the lawn.
- Edge sidewalks, driveway, and anywhere that grass meets a hard surface.
- Blow off all hard surfaces
At Sharp Lawn Care, we offer weekly and bi-weekly lawn mowing services in the Sioux City area. We recommend a weekly lawn mowing service, our most popular service, but we also offer bi-weekly lawn mowing services. So you can decide which option is best for you.
Weekly Lawn Mowing Service
Our weekly lawn mowing service is the recommended and most popular service for the area because you get the best results and a healthy green lawn. We mulch the clippings into the yard for weekly lawn mowing service as this is healthier for the yard. Grass clippings are mainly made up of water and contain nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium found in fertilizer. Mulch mowing can provide one-third of your lawn’s annual fertilization needs each year and does not contribute to excessive thatch build-up when mowed weekly.
Bi-Weekly Lawn Mowing Service
We offer bi-weekly lawn mowing services for our clients interested in our less frequent services due to budget, lack of irrigation, or drought. Bi-weekly lawn service lends itself to common issues like uneven cuts and excessive grass clippings that cause thatch build-up, which could be avoided by choosing our weekly lawn service. You can decide which service is best for you and can change from one service to another at any time.
What Mowing Frequency Should I Choose?
A general rule of thumb is not to remove more than one-third of the total leaf surface when mowing your lawn, which may require cutting every four to five days during rapid growth in the spring. Higher cutting heights allow more time between mowing cycles, which is desirable during periods of rapid growth. Removing more than one-third of the total leaf surface can severely injure the grass plant by decreasing its ability to support its underground portions. For these reasons, we recommend weekly lawn mowing services.
