A common mistake of many homeowners is that they cut their grass far too low. Each type of turf-grass has it’s own height that it should be properly cut at. For example, tall fescue should be cut at 3.5 to 4.5 inches for it to grow and become healthy.
Never cut off more than 1/3 of the grass blade each mowing. Many times, homeowners tend to let the grass get too high then cut it back to the level it had been cut before, resulting in drastic change which stunts and shocks the grass. Sometimes you’ll notice the grass turning yellow after a cut like this. This is why grass should be cut every week on a routine basis.
