Get real and cut it with a mulch mower twice a week or spend some bucks and get a real lawn mower . Maybe 33 inch cut dual blades walk behind at Sears, Home Depot, Lowes etc.

As I said previously, that 33" mulching mower is the best. You still have to mow every 4 days though.

Funny story.
When I lived in Allentown a neighbor of mine had,what he called, a natural lawn.
One day a lawn service sprayed his lawn by instead of his neighbors by mistake.
He was fit to be tied and tried to force them to reseed his lawn with weed seeds.
Things don't get funnier than that.

Clover lawns = clovermites. Maybe you enjoy thousands of bugs running over you in the middle of the night?

And grass harbors sod webworms, chinch bugs, etc. What's your point?

You can always put insecticides down - even on clover, you know.

The issue here was watering and mowing.

Geez! Set your mower higher, cut it. Go back out a day or two later and set your mower back to your normal cut height.

Many of us live in areas that NEVER picked up grass clippings and have survived all these years, get a grip on your priorities.
