Mowing New Lawns

This article was published originally on 5/6/1992
Mow newly seeded bluegrass lawns at a height of 2 inches as soon as grass becomes 3 inches tall. Frequent mowing at this height will encourage spreading and promote a thicker lawn. If the new grass is allowed to reach a height of 4 inches or more, set the mower blade as high as possible and promptly mow. Gradually reduce the height of the grass in later mowings.
