Front Lawn Cut Length and Domination Line - August 2021
Putting a few things in the [lawn diary] in this post: cut length + domination line. First, the cut length. Back in June, I posted about how I was using Hydretain to try to reduce watering while bringing my front yard lawn down one notch on my mower - to 4 out of 6. The past few Summers, I cut the lawn at 6/6 and while it was dark green and lush, it started to fall over a bit and was probably *too long*. I mean...the lawn looked great (2019 early August when it should be failing), but I wanted to push things a bit this year and see if I could handle the shorter cut.
I posted this image in 2019 showing how when my mower was set to 6/6, I was getting between 3.5" and 4" of grass length. Knocking two spots off the mower height setting, I'm now seeing between 2" and 2.5" of height right now. See below for the current length:
