Weekly or Bi-Weekly Mowing
Weekly lawn mowing is recommended as this will help ensure a lush, green lawn. Mowing grass that has grown too tall results in cutting too much length off the grass blades, which can result in a brown or yellowish discoloration of the lawn. The longer grass clippings can also contribute to an underlying condition called “thatch” that creates a carpet of clippings near the base of the grass preventing water, oxygen and nutrients from reaching the grass roots.
Bi-weekly mowing is preferred in the offseason, cooler months, when the grass doesn’t grow as much.
