Lawns are healthiest when mowed at a height of 2.5 - 3 inches or longer - depending on the type of grass - and the mulched clippings are left on the lawn. Grass cut any less than two inches can result in significantly less tolerance to diseases, insect damage, heat and drought. If cut too short, your lawn will be exposed to a higher incidence of insects, diseases, and weeds. Lawns that are cut at a proper length will resist drying out during hot, arid weather and will require less watering. Not only that, your lawn will look much better than lawns that are cut short.
Mowing Frequency: Regular weekly or bi-weekly mowing helps a lawn resist weeds, insects and disease. Infrequent mowing causes too much grass to be removed at one time. Infrequently mowed grass also produces a lawn that looks thin, spotty or burned. Lawns cut weekly remain looking better between cuts than bi-weekly mowing.
Mulching: Grass clippings are an excellent way to return valuable nutrients and organic material to your lawn. Finely-cut clippings contain approximately 80% water, 5% nitrogen, 1% phosphorous and 2% potassium. The nitrogen component in grass clippings can provide about one-third of the yearly nitrogen requirement of a lawn. On the other hand, bagging clippings robs your lawn of these valuable nutrients from your grass.
Lawn researchers have proved that clippings left on lawns result in healthier grass that is less prone to diseases. Mulched grass clippings also contain organic fertilizer, nutrients and minerals, and significant amounts of nitrogen that are returned to the soil if the clippings are left on the lawn.
