Lawn Maintenance

Improper mowing causes more problems on lawns than any other maintenance practice. Most lawns are mowed too short, not often enough, and/or with a dull mower blade.

Turf can be mowed frequently, pro-vided no more than one-third of the grass blade is removed in a single mowing. Mow as high as possible. Lower mowing produces a shallow root system. Shallow grass roots cannot take up enough water and nutrients, making the lawn susceptible to drought stress.
