Mowing regularly keeps lawns looking well-kept and reduces weeds by encouraging dense turf. The recommended mowing height for most northeastern grasses is no shorter that 2-½”. This promotes better root growth, making it easier for the lawn to handle dry spells.
During the summer, most lawns require 1”-2” of water per week. To avoid fungus growth water every other day, early in the morning. Newly seeded areas should be watered lightly 1-2 times daily until the seedlings are 1” high.
When done properly, fertilizing, watering, and mowing can give you the lawn you’ve always wanted
