How to Mow an Overgrown Lawn – Landscaping & Lawn Care

We never thought we’d be writing this advice after a summer of drought, but the heavy rains over the last couple weeks have really caused area lawns to grow. If you’ve put off the mowing, your grass may be too long to mow at your regular length. The problem is that the photosynthesis takes place in the crowns…that’s the top of the grass, so if you eliminate the crowns you could damage your lawn. If you have long grass, it’s best to mow it in stages. Take off about 1/3 of the height, wait a couple days, then mow it again. It’s best to do this while the lawn is actively growing so it can repair itself. If you’re dealing with an overgrown lawn at the end of the season, it’s best to wait until spring to tackle it.
