It does not happen overnight, but with the proper knowledge and subsequent care, our lawns can stay green in spite of drought and other poor growing conditions.

Mowing at the right blade height is crucial in growing a healthy lawn. We all see people riding around their dry lawns with their lawn tractor blades set on the lowest height just chopping down their grass plants that are already struggling to live. It is no wonder that most yards dry up in the heat of the summer. Grass is a plant that needs to collect sunlight on its blades to grow. The more we cut the plant, the less surface for photosynthesis and the slower the growth. In the spring, during heavy growth, set your blade to cut at about 2 1/2 inches. During the summer when the rains slow down and the sun bears down, set the blade to its highest setting or to about 3 inches at the least.
