Here are some simple tips for vegetative growth in September:

We advise you tocut little and often: on average 2 times a week.
The fundamental rule always remains that ofnever remove more than 30%of the height and carefully check that the lawnmower blades are always sharp, if necessary sharpen them or replace them.
Here is a short indicative table for cutting height based on the type of lawn:


Fine-leaved English lawn (poa, ryegrass and red fescue)

Sunny and rustic lawn (poa and fescue arundinacea) 4.5cm
Shaded lawn (red fescue and poa trivialis) 5cm
Cropped lawn 2cm
Lawn in Dichondra, clovers and daisies 4-5 cm
