How Tall Should I Keep My Grass?
Most lawns are healthiest at a height between 4 to 4 1/2 in. If you cut your lawn too short or too much at once, you weaken the grass. Removing more than a third of the blade at once is called scalping. This damages your lawn and makes it more susceptible to disease, insect damage and weed overgrowth.
Many business owners are tempted to cut their lawns short because it means less frequent cutting. But our lawn care service experts will tell you that scalping your lawn costs you more in the long run. If your lawn experiences too much stress, it can become yellow and patchy. When this damage is excessive, you might even have to reseed altogether. Safe, regular lawn mowing keeps your grass within the ideal height range and protects the look of your property.
