Do You Lower Your Mower for the Last Cut of the Year?
I know some of your lawns have already seen a dusting of snow. Even so, I get the “What height for my last mowing?” question every year. Some folks say: “Take it down lower.” Others say: “Leave it long.”
My answer: Keep on mowing at the same cutting height until your grass quits growing.
Recommended grass heights after you mow:
- 2-1/2 to 3 inches for Bluegrass, Ryegrass and Fine Fescue
- 3 inches for Tall Fescue and Buffalograss
- 3 to 4 inches for St. Augustinegrass
- 1-1/2 to 2 inches for Bermudagrass, Centipedegrass and Zoysia
