The more efficient way to cut your lawn is to trim the edges first. This will allow for the clippings to be either mulched or collected by the mower. Cut around the edge wide enough so you can turn the mower around without driving into a flower bed.
To avoid brown patches, don’t cut the grass too short; during the cold season, leave the lawn from 5 to 7 cm long, during the warm season instead, 3 to 6 cm.
Take your time; if the grass is tall or slightly wet, it can cause clumps of mulch and uneven patches.
