If its during a warmer season you can mow your grass until there is about two inches left in height.
During cooler seasons you could mow your lawn until there is approximately three inches left. Biennial weeds complete this cycle in two growth seasons. Cutting at this height encourages good grass growth. It’s the middle of summer, your grass is likely growing rapidly and you may be looking for a time-saving short cut by cutting your lawn shorter.

But it certainly shows how unhealthy that can be. But for many homeowners, common clover in the lawn is simply a nuisance and can make lawns look messy. If you want to invest in some dedicated machinery and tools to make this project easier, then consider power tillers or sod cutters (look for rental options if you want to minimize the cost).
