On "The Georgia Gardener" on GPTV June 10 and 12, host Walter Reeves talks with UGA turf scientist Gil Landry on the right cutting heights for lawn grasses.

Reeves shows how easy it is to remove and replace a mower blade, too. He tells how important it is to not let blades get dull. He talks with UGA weeds scientist Tim Murphy, too, about summer lawn weeds and how to control them.
