WETZEL, Commissioner of Accounts County of Jefferson June II.3T Lawn Mower Should Be Set To ut Grass 7 To TA Inches Htgh Have you checked your lawn mower relative ~) +the height which it is cutting your lawn grass es? If you haven.'t, I'm a~raid many of you are due for a big sur ,prise. I just bought a new hand mower and I purchased ,the ~igh- est cutting one I could find. The highest-cutting mower would cut or~ly 1Vs inches 'high. Your mower +should be set right now to mow the ~awn 2 to 2V~ inches high the remainder ~f the summer. There are definite rea- sons for recommending ~his high a cut. A lawn mown high w~ll provide shade for the ground. As a resu+lt the soil temperature can be kept s:bout 15 degrees lower. The grass cover over the lawn will hel,p pre vent weeds ~rom germinwting. This is particularly true o crab- grass, one of the worst weed ,pests ,that we have. Most of the power mowers may ~be set 'to cut 2 to 2V2 inches high wi~thout trou~ble. If, however, you are still mowing wi~h a hand mow er, you may have to go to some trouble before you get .the proper height,. Make all of ehe adjust- mens that the mower permits. If it van not be set to eat 2 to 2V~ kn~hes hi~h, you may have to se- cure longer brackets ,for the rol'ler ,to raise the mower. The second choice is ~co secure a roller larger in ctiameter. Let's hope that everyone knows how to adjust a hand mower. Roll the mower onto a concrete or plank walk. With a foot ruler, measure the distance from the cut ter ~bar to ,the ground. This is %he height that the mower is set t~ cttt. Adjust the height by Uns~ew ing the brackets on the rorler. Lif't l~hese {is high as they will adjust. Now, ,check and see how high your mower will ,cut. If it is not high enough, then~ obtain the equip- ment that you need to raise the cutter bar.
