Common Grass Cutting Questions

What height should my grass be cut at?

The answer to this depends on the type of grass that you have. As a general rule, most grass can be cut to a height of 2 to 3 inches. Any lower than this, and you risk harming the grass or allowing weeds to take over your lawn.

In the Montgomery and surrounding areas, Bermuda, Centipede, and Fescue grass types are common. Below are the recommended heights that grass should not be cut below.

  • Bermuda - 2 inches (5.08 cm)
  • Centipede - 2.5 inches (6.25 cm)
  • Fescue - 3 inches (7.62 cm)

Is it best to bag clippings or leave them on the lawn?

It is best to leave them on the lawn. The reason being is when grass is cut, the clippings still have the nutrients and vitamins that had been absorbed by the plant. By leaving them in place and allowing them to break down, the clippings act as a fertilizer for the grass and thus will help it to continue to grow.

I have yard waste or tree debris that need to be cleaned up. Will you haul off these items?

We charge an additional fee for hauling off yard or tree debris.

Most cities in the River Region will pick up these items when they are placed on the curb. Your city or county sanitation department can advise whether this is a service that is offered to your residence or place of business. As part of our grass cutting service, we will place them curbside for you for no additional charge.
