Emerald Companies (St Cloud MN) gets asked this question all of the time. What’s the right answer? About 3-4 inches is the perfect length for your lawn as we come into July. Cutting your grass below three inches raises the potential for more weeds and the need for more watering. July tends to be a dryer month in Central Minnesota, so it is important to make sure your lawn length to water ratio is helping and not harming your grass. Not only is cutting your grass too short putting stress on your lawn it can be harmful on your mower too.
So remember for the month of July to cut your lawn 3-4 inches about every 5 days. Be sure to check out www.myemeraldlawn.com for other lawn care tips and tricks!
