How often should you cut your grass? This guide is based on whether your lawn mower has three height cutting settings:
End of March cut on highest cutting height of lawnmower on dry grass.
Every 2 weeks on highest cutting height of lawnmower.
May and June:
Slightly lower the cutting height setting and cut every 10 days.
July and August:
Lower the cutting height, cut every 2 weeks.
If weather very hot, raise the mowing height and cut when it needs it.
if weather is wet, slightly lower the cutting height setting and cut every 10 days.
Cutting height same as July and August (every 2 weeks). If your lawn get full of moss, raise cutting height.
Raise cutting height and cut every 2-3 weeks.
Same as October.
Throughout the winter:
Do not use your lawnmower on frosty grass. Keep it tidy by giving it a cut when the lawn is as dry as possible.
