One of the most commonly asked questions we get is, “How often should I mow my lawn?” Setting a monthly schedule to cut your grass isn’t the best kind of approach one can take. Grass continually grows at different speeds throughout the year. Weather, along with the amount of water, nutrients, and treatments it receives plays a big part in its growth. The more important question to ponder is how long should one’s grass be before cutting it.
This is a matter of opinion and/or preference but at Twin Oaks Property Services, we get the best results from using this approach:
Mulching is very effective for the environment and the overall health of a lawn. It provides nitrogen, adds nutrients, preserves moisture and improves the condition of the soil. The only time we suggest bagging grass is if it contracts a disease or grows longer than 5 inches before it’s mowed. Mulching a lawn with a disease will spread it throughout the yard resulting in more problems and mulching overgrown grass can cause clumps which blocks sun and water from reaching those parts of the lawn causing the grass to die.
We keep our mowing consistent to the measurements and condition of the grass blades which results in a healthy green lawn.
Lawns face a variety of problems and diseases throughout the year such as brown patch, powdery mildew, red thread, snow mold and more. A clean and well-maintained lawn will drastically reduce these potential issues. If the slim chance occurs that one of these problems arises with a healthy lawn, it will recover much quicker and easier than that of an unhealthy and neglected one.
Many people don’t realize it but mowing your grass provides a lot more benefits than you would think. It creates a healthy environment that helps control erosion & runoff, purifies water, improves air quality, cuts cooling costs, and makes your patio or deck experience much more enjoyable. Allowing grass to get equal exposure to sun and water helps the overall health and look of your lawn. Most importantly, a healthy yard combats pollen, smoke, dust particles and ticks and fleas which helps improves one’s overall health.
If you’re looking to grow a lush, green lawn that your neighbours will envy, then our lawn mowing services are the way to go. Freshly cut grass enhances the overall look and personality of your landscape which increases curb appeal adding value to your home. Let us convert your mind-numbing lawn into a mind-blowing one!

Heavy snow is no stranger to our Ontario winters. Though a good snow covering is welcomed by the likes of snowmobilers, skiers, hikers, hunters, and children, it’s an inconvenience for homeowners with driveways and walkways.
Most of us can agree that snow removal isn’t one of the most dazzling household chores, especially in -40° weather but it’s a lot more important than one would think.
As a homeowner, it’s essential to know what your responsibilities are when it comes to keeping your driveway and walkways clear. Refraining from snow removal can result in serious problems so it needs to be made a priority and here are a few reasons why:
