To mow or not to mow?

8 posts in this topic

So some of my grass is actually getting longer already. If I mow now, will it promote growth? Or should I let it get longer and just bag it at that time?

What do you guys think?

You are better off mowing now. Your grass will stay healthier if you cut no more then 1/3 of the grass when you mow.

Yeah, I'm always reluctant to mow and let my lawn go longer. The issue is you should never mow off more then 1/3 the length of your grass. Much more than 1/3 and you cause shock weakening your lawn.

I mow at 4". Most lawn services and commercial property management companies I know have started let things grow the 3.75" to 4".

We will start to mow next week, while finishing up the cleanups. If it's spotty, just mow over the spotty areas, you don't have to mow the entire yard.
