Many people think that it is best to cut lawn grass very short. Granted, it may save you from having to mow, again, real soon. However, it is not good for the health of your grass.
A good height for grass is approximately three inches. If you cut grass too short, there will not be an adequate amount of shade on the grass plants at the soil level. This can cause the plants to sunburn. Also, taller grass will keep weed seeds from sprouting.
