What is the best way to mow the lawn?

Mowing Correctly

When you mow your lawn, mow frequently enough to remove only 1/3rd of the leaf each mowing. If you remove too much and leave the clippings, you could invite a fungal pathogen by leaving too many clippings at once. Mow at the right height, mow frequently, and leave the clippings on the lawn. Leaving properly mowed clippings is highly recommended--it encourages the propagation of beneficial soil microbes.
