The Best Grass Cutting Height for Syracuse NY Lawns
How high should I cut my grass in the Syracuse, NY area? Cool season grasses are best mowed between 2.5” and 4” above the soil line. Usually the taller heights are better for tall fescue grass types.
At Green Earth Lawn & Landscape we recommend to mow on the higher side of the range. Taller grass will produce turf that is more tolerant of traffic, pests, heat and extended drought. Mowing at this height will also make your lawn healthier and look great.
