Lawn Maintenance InformationMowing. The two most important facts of mowing are mowing height and frequency. The minimum height for any lawn is 2 inches. The preferred mowing height for most grass types is 2.5 to 3 inches. Mowing to less than 2 inches can result in decreased drought and heat tolerance. The lawn should be mowed often enough so that no more than 1/3 of the grass height is removed at any single mowing. Grass clippings should fall back onto the lawn. Grass clippings decompose quickly and provide a source of recycled nutrients and organic matter for the lawn. Mulching mowers can do this easily. Grass clippings do not contribute to thatch accumulation.Watering. Many factors influence lawn water requirements, and no two lawns are exactly alike. A healthy, high-quality bluegrass or ryegrass lawn may need up to 2.25 inches of water per week under hot, dry, windy summer conditions. It may require much less when the weather is cool or cloudy. Turf-type tall fescue may perform well with less water than a bluegrass lawn, if it can grow a deep root system.Each time the lawn is watered, apply enough water to moisten as much of the root zone as possible. Grass that grows on sandy soil must be watered more often than the same grass growing on clay or loam soils. Even after a thorough watering, sandy soils hold little plant-available moisture. They require more frequent irrigation with smaller amounts of water. Conversely, turf growing on a loamy-clay soil can be irrigated less frequently, with larger quantities of water. A sure sign that turf requires watering is a wilted appearance. One symptom is "foot printing," where footprints on the lawn that do not disappear within an hour.
