Mowing grass in Willamette Valley
Hello.....How short should we cut our grass (in summer months) in Eugene, Oregon? Thank you.
Lane County Oregon
Mowing height will depend on what type of grass you have as well as your intended use. Are you mowing a lawn?
OSU Extension has a publication called "Maintaining a Healthy Lawn in Western Oregon" (EC 1521)-here is a link:
Page two of this publication shows a table with mowing heights for grasses used in lawns. For example, a perennial ryegrass lawn has a recommended mowing height of 1.5-2".
I hope this helps! If you have additional lawn questions, the OSU Extension Lane County Master Gardeners have a hotline and walk-in office hours. http://extension.oregonstate.edu/lane/gardens
