How often should I mow?
Mow often enough so that you remove only one-third of what is there. Each grass has a height it does best. Bermudagrasses should be maintained at about 1 inch. Mow whenever the grass in 1.5 inches tall. This may mean every second or third day on bermudagrasses in June. St. Augustinegrass should be maintained at 3 inches, so mow whenever the grass is 4.5 inches tall.
