Cutting St. Augustine
Hello and thank you if anybody is able to comment.
I have a floratam lawn that I read should be cut once every 5-7 days. I also read that you should cut just one-third off when you do mow.
My problem stems from the fact mine needs cutting every 3 days. I have my rotary mower on the highest setting 5 inches, though the reality is this cuts at about 3 and 1/2 - 4 inches high, if I were to wait any longer than three days my grass is over 5 inches and I'm cutting more than one-third off.
I should add that I am near Augusta where we have received record rainfall in June and July, and temperatures are consistently 5 degrees cooler than a usual summer, and my grass is looking great.
Does anybody have any thoughts on me cutting as I am. For the record I enjoy cutting the lawn I find it very relaxing.
