When it comes to giving your lawn a great chance of looking well there are a lot of factors to consider. Not only do you have to make sure it gets the proper nourishment and water, how you cut your lawn is important as well. In this post, I will give some answer to the question of what height to cut my lawn?
The Height Will Vary
Because we all live in different regions, we will all have a different type of grass which thrives in our area. In the US we have three regions which are cool, warm & transitional. All of these areas have a different type of grass that is appropriate for the region. Click Here to get some detail on your regions grass types.
Different types thrive better when cut long and others when it is cut short. There are other situations to help you decide how low or high to cut your grass like the season. For instance, cool-season grass is at its best when cut at its recommended highest while warm-season grass is the opposite being a shorter recommended cut range.
You can set your grass cutting height by measuring from the ground to the blade of your mower and recording what notch you have your wheels on or what number your lever is on in cases of lithium mowers.
