 Best height for lawn mowing

I cut my lawn super short fall in hopes of making leaf work easier and getting rid of some weeds by making them unhappy.

Well both of those objectives sorta worked.

Except the close mowing gave me my first crop of Hairy Bittersweet.

So to counter that they do no like tall mowing of 3.5 to 4 inches, so I set my deck at 3.5 . After first mow looks good.

Thoughts?

 Best height for lawn mowing

No doubt the grass you are trying to grow will have its height it prefers, you need to go there if possible.

One sure fire way to get weeds in a lawn is mowing it too low. Taller thicker grass will shade them and help prevent their sprouting or growing. Have your soil tested for many weeds will grow at lower ph than many grasses will. If you have County Agents there they may offer assistance with soil testing, here we have to pay less than $5 per sample and they handle the shipping and I few days we get the result back by email.

If you can share where you live and the type of soil and grass of your lawn you may get better detail recommendations.
