Best Way to Cut Grass
To start with you want to ensure that you are able to easily move up and down the lawn with your mower. If you have a wired electric lawnmower be sure that you have enough cable so that you are not restricted when moving up and down the grass areas. It is highly advised that you use a mower breaker so that if you run over your cable you are protected. There are wireless battery power mowers available.

So What is the Best Way to Cut Grass?
If you’re simply cutting your garden grass it is likely you are looking for a method that can be done within a small amount of time, with minimal stress whilst also making the garden look fantastic.
To start with you want to move up and down the lawn. On every turn you want to overlap the previous run. To make this easier you can put a mark on each side of the mower as a guide.
Continue moving up and down the lawn until you have an even surface. It is recommended that you never remove more than one-third of the grass length for the best results.
The best way to mow a lawn is to be patient. Whilst the up and down method mentioned is the least time-consuming option it is best to take things slow to avoid any chance of ruining your lawn. A methodical approach will see the best results and will avoid any areas being over cut.
What About Edges
When it comes to the edges it is good to get as close as you can with the lawnmower but remember you can always go around with a grass trimmer or edging shears after.
After you have mowed your lawn it is a good idea to use a rake to get any excess grass cleared up, even if your lawnmower does collect grass. This way your lawn will look much more aesthetically pleasing and less untidy.
