Master Winter Lawn Care With Proper Grass Cutting Height For Winter

Winter is here, so it’s time to prepare your lawn for the colder months. Grass height becomes crucial for maintaining health and ensuring a robust resurgence for your property come spring! At Super Green, Fort Wayne’s trusted lawn care and fertilizer experts with over a decade of experience and a sterling reputation backed by 50+ five-star Google reviews, we understand the significance of setting the suitable grass-cutting height to fortify your lawn against winter’s chill.

The Winter Cut: Why Height Matters

Properly cutting your grass before winter can make all the difference in its resilience. While it might seem counterintuitive, allowing your grass to maintain a slightly taller height than usual can protect its roots and aid in cold weather survival. Below, we outline why winter cutting is essential! 


Longer grass provides better insulation for the soil and roots, safeguarding them from extreme temperature fluctuations during the winter.

Photosynthesis Reserve

Taller grass allows for more photosynthesis, enabling the grass to store additional energy reserves that will support its growth once spring arrives.

Cool-Season Grasses Cutting Height

For cool-season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass, fescue, or ryegrass prevalent in Fort Wayne, we recommend maintaining a cutting height between 2.5 to 3 inches before winter sets in.

Warm-Season Grasses Cutting Height

If your lawn features warm-season grasses such as Bermuda grass or zoysia, consider a slightly shorter height, between 1.5 to 2 inches, before the onset of winter.

Came out and sprayed my yard today! Very very nice guy! I have problems with the neighbors not treating their yard and transferring weeds into my yard and he worked with the neighbors and sprayed their yard for free to help the weed situation in my yard! They were on time and did a great job for a very fair price!!

Met a member of the team as he was working on another home in my neighborhood. Perfect timing as I was in need of lawn care. He was very friendly and offered to help out with the weeds in my front yard — gave me information about the business— excited to see my yard look as good as the neighbors!

The service I used was fall leaf pickup, and the yard is so clean that you wouldn’t know there was a leaf fall. I’m very satisfied, great job!

When we finished building our new home and installing a brand new lawn in Summer 2020, we needed serious help with care and maintenance. We reached out to Michael at Super Green Lawn Care, and we're so happy we did. In just 1.5 years, our lawn is thick and green and healthy, thanks to the customized treatments Michel put together, and it's perfectly manicured, thanks to his maintenance services. We've received numerous compliments from neighbors, family and friends — they're all impressed with how far our lawn has come in such a short time. No doubt, we'll be using Super Green Lawn Care for years to come. Love them!

The owner was driving by and saw me out trying to spray my weeds one-by-one. He stopped and offered to spray my yard for free. He told me what he was spraying it with and what he recommended in the future and where to buy it myself. If I wasn't planning on selling my home soon, I'd hire him in an instant!

I am looking forward to doing more business with Michael. He is knowledgeable about the our regions lawn and soil needs. I appreciate the dialogue he openly and honestly shares regarding my specific needs. He doesn’t rush the process nor ignore the customers inquiries. He is very willing to get helpful explanations and guidance. I really appreciate having someone like him I can trust. He went the “extra mile” for me, which was a service that wasn’t scheduled, but he helped me, on a hot day, without hesitation. I really appreciate there are people like that around that really care! I would highly recommend Michael and his Team.

We love Mike. He always communicated with us, our yard always looked amazing, and I feel it's nicely priced. Especially for me not having to worry about cutting my own lawn. We also had the fertilizer treatment. Our grass was clearly greener than anyone else. When I move to my new house, Super Green will definitely be one of the things I take with me.

Michael is passionate about lawn care. He is very knowledgeable about the soil we have here and the best seed and fertilizer to use to get the best results. My lawn was newly planted last summer and before I contacted him it was a sea of weeds and crabgrass. The seeding and fertilizing plan he implemented made a huge improvement in the appearance of my lawn by the end of the fall season. I highly recommend him!

I was really impressed with these folks. I called them today because my lawnmower broke down. They came out today and mowed my lawn and promise to be back next week because I hired them immediately. The professionalism was outstanding. They explained everything they were going to do. They did what they promised. My yard looks great. And I have plans to use them in the future for more projects that I have in mind.
