1) One-Third Rule
Burnout occurs, whenever you trim too much of your grass’s blades. When this occurs, it stresses the lawn and the grass has a difficult time growing as an end result. A good rule of thumb to remember is that you should never remove more that 1/3 of the grass’s blades.
2) Expand Your Grass’s Rooting System By Letting It Occasionally Grow Out
If you live in an area that is prone to receiving droughts, let the grass on your lawn grow out for a while before you cut it. Why ? Whenever you have long grass blades, the roots grow deeper and the end result is that during a drought, the grass’s extensive rooting system will be able to compensate and your lawn will continue to thrive even with little to no rainfall.

3) Ensure that Your Mower Blades Are Sharp
If your lawn mower has dull blades, ultimately it will batter the grass leaving chunks everywhere. Whenever you use sharp mower blades, your lawn’s appearance is enhanced and the grass will be able to recover much sooner.
