How often should lawn be mowed?

There is no one definitive answer to the question of how often lawns should be mowed. Depending on the size and type of lawn, as well as the weather conditions, it may need to be mowed anywhere from once a week to once a month.

Ideally, you should mow your lawn when it reaches 3 inches in height. If you wait until the grass is taller than that, it will be more difficult to cut and could damage your lawnmower. In addition, if you allow the grass to grow too long, it will start to form clumps which can create an inviting environment for pests and diseases.

On the other hand, if you mow your lawn too frequently (e.g., every two or three days), you run the risk of damaging its roots and causing brown patches or scalping (where all of the grass blades are cut off at ground level). So finding that sweet spot where your lawn is regularly maintained without being over-mowed can be tricky – but it’s definitely worth taking the time to figure out what works best for your specific situation!
