Cutting height is now at the maximum your lawnmower will allow. Keep it that way until August...your lawn will thank you.

At the tallest the lawnmower will cut it. St Augustine grass here in a NE Texas lawn. No way am I scalping it. It wants to be lush and it holds water better with some length to it. I think it's about 4 inches tall.

We have several neighbors with a different sort of grass in their yards, like the grass on a golf course. Ours is not that sort of grass - ours is St. Augustine. They cut theirs a lot shorter than we cut ours. It looks good too. So I think it depends on what sort of grass you have in your yard.

The shorter you cut your grass the faster it'll actually grow.

Short enough that the sandhill cranes+colt can find the kernel corn I scatter for them but not so tall that I stumble over a ruminating moose. Tends to make them a bit cranky.

Oh, yeah...short enough that the lawn guy can cut it again a week later without too much trouble.

Sounds like quite a range.

If you are not watering your lawn and there is no rain in the coming week, skip cutting your lawn.
