Mowing is probably the most time consuming activity of lawn maintenance. No matter what type of grass you tend, it’s vitally important to maintain a sharp mower blade, so that you’re cutting grass blades cleanly and not tearing them, which creates openings for pests and diseases to enter. It’s also equally key to know the proper mowing height for your turf type. For warm-season grasses, turf height varies by grass type, covering a range from 1 to 4 inches. Research the type of grass you have, and maintain it at the ideal height.
