It is important to keep your grass mowed and trimmed at the correct height and frequency. In the High Country of North Carolina the predominant type of lawn grass is tall fescue which should be mowed to 2 1\2 to 4 inches and often enough that no more than one-third of the grass height is cut. Generally, that means mowing every 5-7 days. Proper maintenance of tall fescue is not only important for aesthetic purposes, frequent mowing helps keep the lawn healthy and eliminates pests.
