Beyond the depth of the root growth isn't there something to be said of the spread of the root growth as well? Are cool season turf grasses similar as trees and shrubs where the rule of thumb I've always had in my head, whether it's true or false, is that the roots are as wide as the branches themselves?

Using this idea by mowing your lawn taller it allows the plant to have greater spread there by allowing the roots to spread, gaining more surface area to access nutrients and water.
