Mowing the lawn

How short do I cut the grass to choke out the weeds? I was told if u let the grass get tall the roots will get strong and choke out the weed roots.

  • My dad taught me this weekend the best way to get rid of them is to literally dig out the weed, then sprinkle a pintch of Weed and Feed right into the hole you dug. It will help them from growing back!

    Good luck, I hate yard work!! LOL

  • I always heard you have to pull them out or use weed and feed, they always come back specially during the summer.

  • Using a mower won't help. You need some weedkiller. Go around squirting them with it. You could also pull them out.

  • Yep, gotta pull them out by the roots.

  • cutting them wont help. Have you tried pulling them or a weed eater?

  • Mowing them down doesn't kill them, they grow back even more quickly than the grass does. You have to pull them.
