unless it is a dwarf cultivar mowing height is recommended at 3.5"-4" shaded areas should be cut at the upper height. watering should coincide with the dew on the ground, early morning. Watering should be 1/2-3/4 " water 2x per week in summer and ideally grass should start showing moisure stress prior to watering.

Go to a local Lesco and ask them for one of their schedules.
