Know Your Lawn

A properly trimmed lawn not only looks better, but it is also more likely to resist weeds, insects and disease. Whether you cut your own lawn or have a service, please take note of the following mowing guidelines:

St. Augustine Grass

St. Augustine Grass

If you have a St. Augustine lawn, you should be mowing once a week, maintaining an average height of 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches.*
Bermuda Grass

Common Bermuda Grass

With this lawn type, you should be mowing between 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches. Mow once a week or if possible once every 5 days.*

Other Grass Types

Should be mowed between 2 and 3 inches.

* For Common Bermuda and St. Augustine mow at the lowest recommended level in early spring (March), and over time gradually raise the mower height so that it is a the highest recommended level by late June/early July. If possible, do not mow wet grass: When wet grass is mowed, it cuts unevenly and the clippings form clumps that create a barrier, preventing your lawn from receiving sunlight.
Grass Height

Why Grass Height Matters

Research has shown a direct relationship between mowing height and root depth. When grass grows too high, and is then cut, it will expose the stems to direct sunlight and the lawn may burn. If the lawn is yellow or pale after you mow, you have waited too long. The grass will recover, but the root system may be severely shocked. When grass is mowed at the recommended height, the root system develops better.
