Green Meter

This lawn, while only a year or 2 after sodding, is in good shape; few weeds, good colour. It is being mowed at a height of about 3".

This helps to keep the soil cooler even though it is surrounded by asphalt and concrete.

Mowing height is so important, yet so many lawns are mowed too short. Yes, I know, golf courses do it all the time, but people pay to walk on their lawns, so they can afford to spend extra $$ on the remedies that are sometimes needed because the lawn is cut too short.
