There is a common mowing mistake by many homeowners the Collin County and other North Texas communities. That is mowing the lawn too low (“scalping”) to satisfy the appearance of service or to lower weekly frequency mows. This can harm your lawn.
Instead, here are the benefits of higher mowing levels:
- St. Augustine grows on top of the ground with it’s blade runners exposed all season. This turf needs at least 3-3.5 inches of height to produce stem
- Moreover; St. Augustine, will do great with only part sun of four hours or more with filtered light, mowed at 3.5 inches, and greater.
- Bermuda, full sun grass can be maintained in the same manner, especially in shade to poor soils.
We generally mow up to 4.5 inches for a deeper color and the carpet effect. The depth is not noticed if the entire lawn has the same height relative to achieve the new longer cut. Best of all a higher thatch adds insulation from the Texas sun and southwest August wind.
Lastly, a deeper root system will be established allowing defenses against abnormally hot dry summers and cold winters. Water adds to longevity and to the for mention practices; deep thatch, and deep root stem.
