Coming back from vacation with 6" high grass. Using the one third rule, I need to mow three times to get down to 2" (my lawn maintenance service recommends 2" high cut at this time of year in the Northeast w/ leaves/pine needles falling).
First time at 4", second time at 3", last time at 2". Most advice I've seen recommends go back to cut again in 2-3 days. Why not cut in successive days rather than waiting for 2-3 days?
