Your mowing habits have a huge impact on the health of your lawn.
Increasing the mowing height will improve the lawn’s health, density and root system. In addition, the germination rate of weed seeds will be reduced. A good mowing height is 3″. Lawns should never be cut below 3 inches, with the exception of the last mowing before winter, which can be done at 2 inches. Also, sharpen your mower blades, a sharp blade will reduce the possibility of disease and produce fewer torn white tips. Recycle grass clippings, these clippings add organic nitrogen to the lawn and do not add thatch.
