Mowing the lawn isn’t just a chore, done properly it can help your lawn and the environment. There are three factors that are critical to proper mowing.

 

 

Sharp mower blade

A sharp blade makes a clean cut leaving less tissue exposed, reducing water loss stress and disease concerns. A dull blade not only causes significant health concerns for your lawn, but can also cause discoloration.

 

 

Frequency

The simple rule to remember is the 1/3 rule. Mowing should be done often enough to prevent the removal of more than 1/3 of the leaf at any one time. This will help lower the level of stress on the root system. Removal of more than 1/3 of the leaf too often or under periods of heavy stress can result in turf loss. This frequency will vary during the year, but once a week is usually often enough even during periods of heavy growth.

 

 

Height

Mowing heights vary for different types of turf. See below for your turf type and mowing height.

  • Fescue 3 – 5 inches – for fescue, the taller the better!
  • Bermuda 1 1/2 – 2 inches
  • Zoysia 1 1/2 – 2 inches
