Typically, homeowners should mow their lawns once a week. However, depending on the type of grass and the time of year, some homeowners may need to mow their lawn more or less often.
Homeowners who live in a warm climate, for example, may need to mow their lawn more often than those who live in a cooler climate. And, homeowners who have a Bermuda grass lawn may need to mow their lawn every three to five days during the growing season. So, while there is no hard and fast rule, homeowners should typically mow their lawn once a week.
If a homeowner’s lawn is covered in weeds, they may need to mow more often to keep the weeds under control. Or, if a homeowner’s lawn is very dry and brown, they may need to mow less often to avoid damaging the grass. In general, though, homeowners should aim to mow their lawn once a week.
