We’re having a heat wave. Instead of watering more, Ask your landscapers to not mow your lawn this week.
Mowing height can contribute significantly to the health of the lawn. Correct mowing height can also reduce the amount of water used by turf during the hot summer months.
By increasing mowing height, grass roots grow deeper into the soil allowing them to survive longer without water.
Higher mowing heights also help control annual weeds in the lawn by decreasing the light needed for weed seed germination.
