Saint George Lawn Mowing Recommendations

Saint George Utah Lawn Mowing Duration
One can expect to mow their lawns for 9 months of the year.  In March lawns start coming out of dormancy and by Thanksgiving lawn growth is slowing down greatly and you can consider wrapping up your mowing for the year.

Saint George Utah mowing Height

For the grass types we have in the St. George area, we recommend mowing at least 3 inches high.  The higher the grass is cut the better.  When lawns are mowed too short the soil dries out, and the lawn will need more water.  With the extreme heat we get here this can make a big difference.  Also, when mowed too short the sun can get to the ground better giving weeds a much better chance of growing.

Saint George Watering Frequency

We recommend turning your sprinklers on towards the beginning of April.  When the weather is less than 80 degrees you should be able to get away with watering your lawn 2-3 times per week.  When the temperatures are 90+ we recommend watering 3-4 times per week.  If the lawn starts to look dry we recommend increasing how much water you’re putting down at each watering instead of increasing how often you water.  The goal is to water as infrequently as you can get away with, but put a lot of water down each time you water.

Saint George Lawn Mowing Frequency

We recommend mowing your lawn weekly March-November.  Ideally one doesn’t want to cut more than 1/3 the length of the grass blade off at one visit.  Cutting too much off can cause the plant stress which is not wanted when the grass is already dealing with 100+ temperatures.  We find that mowing weekly is ideal to meet these requirements.
