How much should you cut the grass before mowing?
As you mow the lawn, only remove up to one-third of the grass blade length at a time with sharpened mower blades. If the grass is still too long, mow it in a different direction the next day. Removing one-third of the grass height at a time reduces stress and provides adequate surface area for continued photosynthesis.
