Lawn mower blade height is an adjustment to your mower that needs to be done as the season changes.
You should have lowered the blade height during the last cut in the fall, and then remember to adjust the lawn mower blade height back to a normal position when the spring comes. The height of your lawn mower in summer can be raised an inch to help reduce heat stress to your lawn, and when cooler temperatures come, return the mower deck to its normal mowing height (about 2 inches tall is best for most grasses).
Adjusting down the mower blade height and cutting your lawn slightly shorter in autumn helps prevent the grass from matting down under leaves and snow. Avoid cutting the grass too short, however. Tightly clipped turf can’t get the oxygen and nutrients it needs and has fewer roots that allow weeds to get a foothold.
