Seasonal Outdoor Tips

  • Cool-season grasses should be mowed at 3″- 4″ during the summer, or as high as your blade will go, while warm-season grasses should be mowed at 2″-3″.
  • Mulching grass clippings help keep moisture levels steady.
  • Mow regularly, to prevent cutting more than 1/3 of the grass blade at a time.
