|Mowing height and frequency
depends upon many factors. The species of grass, the variety developed, the usage,
climate, watering system or not, fertilization, weeds and sometimes disease.
The time of the year will also affect the rate of mowing. Whether it is a new
lawn or older established lawn. Grasses that are in a-one shape and getting the right
amount of fertilizer and water will naturally grow faster and need more mowing
|Mowing early in the spring
as the grasses get started helps to remove the weeds, which
are already getting to the seeding stage. This helps cut down
on the usage of herbicides. In the cool season areas grasses
that are affected by fungi sometimes require more frequent
mowing to remove the growth and get more air circulating to
help prevent or lessen fungal attack.
Some of the grasses are coarser than
the others and require the blade to be especially sharp or the
lawn will have a ragged look when finished.
Mowing of heat stressed grass in
the middle of the day only promotes more loss of moisture and nutrients unless watering
systems are used shortly afterward. Warm season grasses con withstand the shorter mowing
if done on a regular schedule and actually respond by better root development and thicker
- Cool & Warm Season Grasses
Cool season grasses grow the
fastest in the spring and early summer and early fall in preparation for winter dormancy.
The warmer season grasses start very
early in the spring and continue through the winter in warmer climates and with regular
maintenance can result in year round care.
Mowing heights range from ¼ inches to 4
inches depending upon the species. Cool season grasses that arent receiving enough
water need to be a little longer to withstand the stress of the heat and evaporation of
the sun and mowing to close can kill these grasses in this situation.
