I have a country lawn and told my roommate that i didn't want to mow it anymore because even though it is short, it has many seed heads growing in there. He said i should mow it anyway... that grass grows more grass through the root system. I'm thinking if this was totally true, nature wouldn't be providing those seeds each fall. I think I should take advantage of the free seed. I don't care if it gets long and looks bad this fall. Anybody have an opinion? other than it's gotta be mowed, I don't know much about lawns.
