Q: Last Saturday on Hornung's Helpful Hardware Man, the question was how high or low should the mower setting be for cutting grass. The answer included reasons for a higher setting. I checked the website but did not find the audio of the program. Could you provide the answer?
A: 3 to 3.5 inches is ideal as it reduce moisture loss from the ground and reduces weeds from germinating. this usually means adjusting the mower to the 3rd or 2nd from the highest setting.
