2. Mow High

Leave grass 5 - 7.5 cm (2-3") tall and avoid mowing more than 1/3 of the grass blade. This shades the roots and helps prevent evaporation. It also helps your grass grow deep and strong roots that can overpower weeds and retain water. Leaving grass clippings on your lawn can provide about one-third of your lawn's nutrient needs and are a valuable source of organic matter.
