SmallAxe,

Are you doing lower than normal Spring mowings...?

If yes how low and do you remove the organic material...?

This last weekend I did some test strips of low mowings vs lawn debris combing too see how the results compare later this Spring.

Another area of the lawn is being saved for my normal mowing height of 3.5" with no attempts of low mowing or raking.

Also will test the "SAY NO TO LOW MOW" test areas with different fert to test "push the dormant grass out effect"

Grass was pretty much at 4.0" over winter.

Yes I'm prone to OCD behavior Still trying to figure out how to make that sound appealing from a marketing perspective.
