What is a Good Height for Lawn Mowing Grass?

Proper mowing height for lawn grass varies depending on the species and whether the grass is under stress, such as with heat or drought, which requires a higher cut. Proper cutting height varies from 1 to 2 inches for warm-season zoysiagrass, to up to 4 inches for St. Augustinegrass.
