Cutting Grass, The Right Way!
Cutting your lawn too short is not doing it any favors. Surface roots become exposed, the soil dries out faster and surface aeration is reduced. Generally, you should not cut off more than one-third of the grass at any one time. Most turf grass species are healthiest when kept between 2.5″ and 3.5″ tall. When your grass thrives, it naturally helps reduce weeds.
What Mowing Frequency Should I Choose?
A general rule of thumb is not to remove more than one-third of the total leaf surface when mowing your lawn. This may require mowing every four to five days during rapid growth in the spring. Higher cutting heights allow more time between mowing cycles. This is desirable during periods of rapid growth. Removing more than one-third of total leaf surface can severely injure the grass plant by decreasing its ability to support its underground portions. For these reasons, we recommend weekly lawn mowing services.
Managing Grass Clippings
It is best to return clippings to the lawn whenever possible. When the lawn is mowed so that less than one-third of the total leaf surface is removed, grass clippings can easily be returned to the lawn. Excessive accumulation of clippings from infrequent mowing may smother the turf and should be removed. A common misconception is that clippings left on the lawn will promote thatch buildup. This is not true. Clippings do not make significant contributions to thatch and should be returned to the lawn whenever possible. These leaves contain mostly water and break down rapidly, releasing nutrients back into the system. Returning grass clippings means that nitrogen applications can be reduced by as much as 1 pound per 1,000 square feet per year.
