Mowing height is SO important. While mowing your lawn short might seem like a good idea because you can go longer between mows, this allows the perfect opportunity for weeds and grassy-type weeds to invade the lawn, as well as cause your lawn heat stress in the hot summer months. In addition, this can promote lawn diseases to occur. We recommend mowing your lawn no shorter than 3.5” with sharpened blades, while not removing more than 1/3 of the grass blade on a single cut.
During the hot summer months, it can get too hot or dry for the cool season grasses. When temperatures rise above 90 degrees, cool season lawns can start to go dormant and turn brown until cooler weather and enough moisture reach the soil. During those hot summer months, we recommend watering 2-3 inches a week during the morning hours either by rainfall or irrigation. During the cooler months, a healthy lawn needs 1-2 inches of water a week. When a lawn receives more water than normal, this allows moisture to build in the soil. Having too much moisture can bring diseases into the lawn. If possible, let your lawn dry out for the next couple of days and continue with the recommended watering instructions.
Grass clippings can both help and hurt your lawn depending on the amount. Clippings are a valuable source of nutrients that can give back to your lawn. Excessive clippings that are left in clumps can damage your lawn by leaving discolored areas and eventually killing those sections. It is important to only mow 1/3 of the blade of grass at a time, so there is not an excessive amount of clippings. Make sure to blow out any clumping areas to spread the clippings or bag the grass if there is more than expected.
