This time of year can be very tough for the lawn. The heat is setting in, water is scarce and the bugs are going crazy. Ready, Set…So here we go!
Mow the grass at the proper time and at the proper height. Common Bermuda grass likes to be mowed often (3 – 7 day) at a height of 1 to 2 inches. St. Augustine requires less mowing (5 – 7 days) and likes to be cut between 3 and 3 1/2 inches tall. If the growth of the grass slows, so should the mowing frequency.
