Proper Mowing Height

A properly mowed lawn will be more drought tolerant, have less weeds, and be healthier. Different species of turfgrass require different mowing heights. The following is a general guideline for common grasses found locally in the Virginia Beach and Chesapeake areas as well a our Tidewater area as a whole.

Tall Fescue: 2”-4”

Bermuda: 0.5”- 2.5”

St. Augustine: 1”-3”

The root system depth directly correlates to the height of the grass. We recommend cutting each species of grass at the taller height. Deeper roots will allow the grass to be more drought and disease tolerant.
