Often delegated to the nearest teenager looking for some extra cash, mowing might seem like a goof-proof chore. But, truth is, lawns that are properly mowed are actually healthier and more beautiful.

Alternately, according to the Smithfield Lawn Service and Landscape, mowing mistakes can result in discolored grass tips, brown spots, and even damage to the lawn.
The experts at the Smithfield Lawn Service reports that the most common mowing mistakes are mowing too infrequently and cutting grass too short.
