When to Raise Your Lawnmower Blades

You should do your lawn a favor in the summer months and raise the height of your lawnmower blades. Grass needs to be higher in the hot and dry months. This will keep the roots of the grass cooler. The shade from the tall grass will also keep your grass from sunburning.

Allowing your grass to grow a little higher in the hot months will also help to ensure that any water the grass receives is not quickly evaporated, because it is protected by the shade of the tall grass.
