lawn will also respond to how frequently or infrequently it is mowed. Mowing too often places additional stress on
the grass from water loss and soil compaction.
Infrequent mowing, on the other hand, “may result in scalping and a
buildup of clippings on the surface that can contribute to disease and other
problems” (Christians, Nick, Fundamentals of Turfgrass Management: Ann
Arbor Press, Chelsea, Michigan: 1998, page 150). If you stick to the guide of removing not
more than 33 to 40% of the aboveground plant tissue (and less during periods of
stress), you will find the proper balance in mowing frequency for your lawn.
