Looking at your messy or patchy lawn, you might be thinking, "I fertilize my yard, too, so why does my neighbor's lawn always look better?" The answer might surprise you-mowing your lawn plays a huge role in how your grass grows and it's overall health.

Time and money spent to fertilize your lawn can be erased quickly by mowing it incorrectly. If it's done properly, mowing will create a thicker, denser cover of grass. But if you mow your yard incorrectly, you could be dealing with serious issues.
