No matter how tall the grass is, stop yourself from cutting off more than one third of the blade length in any single mowing. If you remove more than 40% of the grass blade the roots stop growing. The grass should always look green even after you cut it. Also cutting one-third will produce small clippings that you should leave on the grass.
