Discover the Different Types of Grass and Their Cut Heights

🌿 Did you know that different types of turf require different cutting heights? Let us break it down for you! 🌱

In Ohio, there are several popular types of turf, each with its own unique characteristics. Whether you have Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, or perennial ryegrass, knowing the proper cutting height can make all the difference in achieving a lush green carpet beneath your feet.

🌱 Kentucky bluegrass: This type of turf thrives in cooler climates and benefits from a slightly higher cutting height ranging from 2.5 to 4 inches. Maintaining this length not only promotes its natural resilience but also helps prevent weed invasion.

🌾 Tall fescue: Known for its adaptability to dry conditions, tall fescue prefers a slightly taller cut between 3 to 4 inches. By keeping this length, you'll encourage deep root growth while providing shade for the soil, reducing water evaporation during hotter months.

🍃 Perennial ryegrass: If you have this popular turf variety in your yard, aim for a shorter cutting height ranging from 1.5 to 3 inches. Regular mowing at this level enhances density and aesthetics while allowing sunlight to reach lower plant levels effectively.

Remember, keeping your grass at the correct height isn't just about appearances – it promotes overall turf health and resilience against pests and diseases. 🌱✨
