• Our weekly lawn cutting service starts May 1st and ends November 15th. We will cut your grass 18 – 25 times depending on weather. The service includes trimming and clean up using leaf blowers.
We cut the grass at 2.5 to 3 inches, and never chop off more than one-third of the grass plant at a mowing. Cutting more than a third of the blade severely shocks the plant and harms its ability to support its own root growth. This is because the roots shut down their growth process while the leaves and shoots of grass are regrowing. We always leave the grass clippings on the lawn because they add nitrogen to your soil after they decompose. Although we leave the clippings, we never leave a mess; any clumps of clippings will be broken apart and dispersed around the lawn using leaf blowers.
We may cut the grass every two weeks during the months of July, August, October and November. July and August are too hot and dry for regular grass growth some years and October and November are sometimes too cold, it’s best to stay off the lawn if there is no need to cut it. We still show up every week to tidy things up with trimmers even if we don’t cut the grass. Pure Lawn Care has been cutting lawns in Ottawa since 2008.
