The hot weather is here. Depending on your lawn, you may need to change your sprinkler timer to water 3 days per week. Also, if you’ve been cutting the grass shorter this spring then don’t forget to raise your lawn mower.

If you would like to go higher then go right ahead. For a full explanation on the benefits of mowing at a longer length, read our in depth article “How to get a beautiful lawn“.
