How tall should I mow my lawn?

We recommend that during the normal growing season you keep your lawn cut to approximately 3” in height. This is an optimum height for keeping the lawn healthy and green, it reduces the need for watering and is better for the grass, particularly during times of drought. Mowing shorter requires additional watering to keep your lawn green and can contribute to weed germination and growth.  In fall, as weeds stop germinating, you can lower your cutting height to approximately 2” which will help mulch any leaves that fall in your yard.
