Once the root system of your new lawn attaches to the soil, you may begin a regular mowing schedule. Proper mowing height is dependent on the overall height of your grass. A good rule to follow is to never cut more than 1/3 of the leaf blade at a time.
Allowing your grass to grow for long periods of time and then chopping it off will scalp the grass and make it susceptible to disease.
Our recommendation is to mow regularly and keep the grass around an inch in height.
- If you want to reduce your mowing schedule, raise your mowing height up and lower your fertilization intervals.
- For a highly manicured look, you’ll want to lower your mowing height and increase your fertilization intervals.
- Usually fertilizing monthly works well.
