Can you mow over gravel?

Don’t mow gravel

Never cross over a gravel driveway with the blades engaged. And if you live on a gravel road, mow grass near gravel only when there are no cars or pedestrians passing by.

Accordingly, can you mow over rocks?

I use this in areas where the mower can‘t go, or there are just too many rocks and the ground is too uneven for the mower. Just be careful to mow high with the scythe or you‘ll ruin the blade on the rocks. It easily handles small brush, and the blades will give way if they hit a rock.

Also Know, how far can a lawn mower throw a rock? 50 feet

Then, how do you keep grass from growing in rock beds?

Lay black plastic over the bare soil and place the rocks over the plastic; the plastic blocks sunlight and prevents grass and weeds from growing among the rocks. If grass appears even after using preemergent herbicide, spray it right away with the postemergent herbicide before it can grow into several clumps.

How fast does a lawn mower throw a rock?

The blades cut the rocks to pieces and threw them in all directions, with a maximum speed of 400 feet per second (120 m/s).
