What is Double Cutting: Double cutting means pushing your reel lawn mower along a line and then reversing direction and cutting the same path again. This is recommended when the grass is long and thick.
What is North-South, East-West Cutting: This means pushing your reel mower across your lawn in a north south direction. When you are done with your lawn, mow it again pushing your mower in an east west direction. This is also recommended when the lawn is thick or long. This method is often recommended for Bermuda and Zoysia lawns.
Regular Cutting: If you can it is recommended that you mow with your reel mower every four or five days during late-May and June. When not mowing during these periods, mowing once a week is recommended. This would assume you are not double cutting or north-south, east-west cutting.
