However, it should be cut beforehand, to a length of approx. five centimetres. This setting is very suitable for giving your lawn a well cared-for appearance. At the same time, the higher cutting height guarantees a certain amount of protection for the grass against cold. However, the grass should not be left too long, as otherwise, in areas of snowfall, the snow presses the blades of grass down. This in turn provides an ideal breeding ground for fungi and other diseases.
Also ensure that the cut grass does not remain on the lawn. Here, too, a humid climate can form under the cuttings which promotes the spread of fungi and bacteria. The same applies to leaves and windfall on the lawn: clear everything away carefully in order not to damage the lawn.
