THE DANGERS OF
MOWING TOO LOW
Spring marks the return of many things. Trees
and fl owers begin to bloom again in spring, while
warmer temperatures are welcomed back with open
arms. Grass also begins to grow again in the spring.
That means it’s not too long before homeowners
have to dust off their lawn mowers and get to work.
Those who don’t necessarily enjoy mowing the
lawn may be tempted to cut their grass very low,
as doing so can mean longer intervals between
mowing sessions. However, mowing grass too low
can have a very adverse effect on a lawn.
• Cutting too low can injure the grass. Cutting
grass too low can injure the grass, creating what’s
essentially a domino effect of problems to come.
Injured grass will focus on its recovery efforts,
thereby making it vulnerable to other issues.
• Cutting too low promotes weed growth. Injured
grass is vulnerable to invaders, including weeds
and insects. Weeds and insects can attack grass as
it recovers from injury, and before homeowners
know it, their lawns are overcome with a host of
• Cutting too low allows crabgrass to thrive.
Crabgrass needs ample sunlight to grow. By cutting
grass too low, homeowners may unknowingly be
promoting crabgrass growth. Crabgrass is unsightly
and can rob surrounding grass of the moisture it
needs to grow. So lawns cut too low may not only
lose their lush appeal thanks to the unattractive
appearance of crabgrass, but also because areas
surrounding the crabgrass patches might turn
brown due to lack of water.
• Cutting too low can stress the grass. Cutting too
low also makes lawns vulnerable to summer heat.
Without blades tall enough to block some of the
summer sun, grass can quickly succumb to summer
heat, leading to dried out, discolored lawns.
