What is the proper mowing height?

Mowing - Proper height

Proper mowing height is critical to the health of your lawn. Most grasses can be mowed to a height of 3 1/2 to 4 inches. Some types, especially fine fescues and centipede grass, fall over at height and can be mowed a ½ inch to an inch shorter than most other grasses.
