Check the blade of your mower is set to the correct height - raising it a little at the start and end of the season. As a guide, a general-purpose lawn is best kept at 2.5cm - 4cm long in the summer.
In early to mid-spring, mow your lawn once a week. Increase this to twice a week in late spring and early summer when growth is most vigorous.
Compost grass cuttings as they will rot down and return nutrients to the soil. In summer leave them on the lawn to help retain moisture.
