Let me say a few more things about mowing....first....Cutting Height
 
How high should you cut your grass?  Well, five factors determine the best cutting height:
 
 
Species
 
 
Use of the Area
 
 
Environmental Conditions
 
 
Turf Health
 
 
Mower Type
 
 
Turfgrass species is the main factor.  The location of the crown for each species is different.  Some species have elevated crowns so they would suffer from thinning and loss of vigor if the cutting height is too low.
