As summer fades into fall, it’s time to help lawns recover from summer stress and prepare for the winter ahead.

Keep mowing your lawn as long as it continues to grow. Grow cool-season grasses like bluegrass, fescue and ryegrass, and you want it 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches tall. Warm-season grasses like Bermuda, carpetgrass, centipede and zoysia should be grown at 1 to 2 inches tall while St. Augustine should a bit higher, 2 to 3 inches, for best results.
