    We need more information. What do you want to know? Where do you live? What types of grasses are you dealing with? Are you wanting to cut professionally or just your own property? Is quality of cut important to you?

    Actually lawn mowers are machines which are used to cut grass. There are different types of mowers available in the market and you can purchase your desired one according to your need and preferences.

    Hi harshaljames, Here is detailed information regarding to your question. I hope you will know more about lawn mowing.

    Lawn Mowing

    In lawn mowing, there is a machine which has blades to cut the grass on grass recommended height. Remember that mowing is pruning. Proper mowing increases the density of the lawn, which in turn decreases weeds. Each type of grass has a recommended mowing height. Find out which type of grass is in your lawn (you may have more than one) and mow at the proper height.
    Stick to the 1/3 rule — never remove more than 1/3 of the grass blade length at any one time. A healthy lawn can survive an occasional close cut. Repeated close mowing produces a brown lawn and has several harmful side effects, including:
    • Injury to the crown, where new growth generates and nutrients are stored.
    • Reduction of the surface area of the blade, making the blade surface insufficient to produce food through photosynthesis.
    • Increased vulnerability to pests and disease.
    • An increase in the sunlight reaching weed seeds, allowing them to germinate.
    • Risk of soil compaction.
     
    Also remember to:
    • Mow when the grass is dry. The blades will be upright and less likely to clump when cut.
    • Avoid mowing in the heat of the day to prevent heat stress on your grass and yourself.
    • Keep mower blades sharp and balanced. Ragged cuts made by dull blades increase the chance of disease and pests.
    • Change the mowing pattern each time you mow. Grass develops a grain-based on your cutting direction, tending to lean towards the direction you mow. Alternating the pattern causes more upright growth and helps avoid producing ruts in the lawn.
    • Mow moving forward, whether you're pushing a walk-behind mower or sitting behind the wheel of a lawn tractor.
    • Discharge the clippings (unless you bag them) towards the area you have already cut.
    • Leave clippings on the lawn unless they form clumps or rows. This technique (known as grasscycling) returns nutrients and nitrogen to the lawn.
    • Consider using a mulching mower or mulching attachments.
    • If you bag your clippings, consider composting them.
    • Mow grass higher in shaded areas under trees. In these areas, grass has to compete with tree roots for water and nutrients.
    • Reduce mowing frequency and raise the mowing height of cool-season grasses when hot, dry weather slows their growth rate.
    • Follow the proper fertilizing schedule for your type of turfgrass.
     
    Mowing new grass
    Newly-seeded grass needs three to four weeks to get established after germination before you should mow it for the first time. The grass blades are tender and easily damaged and the foot and mower traffic could compact the soil, especially if the soil is moist. Mow when the new grass is 3/4 inch to 1 inch taller than its recommended regular mowing height.
