Abstract/Contents:"When Kentucky bluegrass is permitted to grow reasonably high it will generally produce a turf superior to that which is clipped close. On fairways, the usual practice is to permit the grass to grow as high as the players will tolerate which is usually not much higher that 1 inch. On bluegrass lawns, where the height of the grass does not interfere with the purpose for which the turf was planted, it is advisable to cut the grass at 1 1/2 or 2 inches during the hot summer months. It should be maintained at this height rather than be permitted to grow tall and then be cut back to this height. Such practice will tend to keep the turf in a vigorous condition and at the same time produce enought to shade to discourage the crabgrass and weeds which germinate at that time."
