Summer Mowing Heights

July 2, 2012

Your grass appreciates a higher mowing height during the hot summer months.  Consider bumping your mower setting up a notch to leave your grass at the taller end of this range for your type of grass.  (These suggested heights are after you mow):

2-1/2 to 3 inches for Bluegrass, Ryegrass and Fine Fescue

3 to 4 inches for Tall Fescue and Buffalograss

3 to 4 inches for St. Augustinegrass

1-1/2 to 2 inches for Bermudagrass, Centipedegrass and Zoysia

Then around September you could drop down to the lower end of the range for your grass type.

  1. I keep my Zoysia at about 2.5 inches usually but it’s more for the texture. Great post though
