Does it sometimes seem like your lawn grows faster than you can cut it? With the right conditions, it doesn’t take many days from one cut to the next, but if you want your yard to look nice, there are no alternatives. In some neighborhoods, there will be an HOA that will let you know if you are not keeping up with your lawn, and even if this isn’t the case, your neighbors might still let you know.
In some countries, there is even legislation for how tall you’re allowed to grow your grass in a residential area, since it could offer shelter for pests.
While keeping your lawn trimmed is important, you should resist the temptation to cut it really short, since this could be damaging to your grass. You should also make sure to irrigate the grass regularly when there is little rain, since prolonged exposure to heat could also kill it.
