The cutting height
A very important fact to take into consideration in lawn maintenance is the cutting height. Generally we try not to let the grass exceed the height of 10 cm. This measure is considered the best both for an aesthetic question and to prevent the development of weeds.
The ideal cutting height is generally 3-4 cm, but in shaded areas it is preferable to raise it by a few centimeters, given that the growth is more difficult. It should however be stressed that the height of the cut also depends on the type of grass, for example if in your garden you have chosen to sow Poa Pratensis grass then the ideal cutting height will be between 4 cm and 5 cm.
