You and I probably have similar grasses. I cut at 3.0-3.5 for most of the season, but intend to make last cut at 2.5. 2.0 would look like it was scalped. In fact, sometimes 2.5 will leave a few places that look scalped -- yellow/brown undergrowth is showing. For those I cut at 3.75-4.0 for the season, making the last cut at 2.75 is as low as I can cut for last mowing, and sometimes that is a struggle, and exposes yellow/brown undergrowth.
The grass stayed green all summer when I cut it at that height. This is about the height most of the guys around here cut it at.
