A) I can't raise my mower any taller, unfortunately.
B) BG goes dormant here in the Summer. It is our warm nighttime temps that hurt it the most I believe. Plus, we are more humid here than most might imagine...thus keeping the temps UP at night.
C) In the shady/shadier areas, the BG is just not thick enough to stand up well. Where it gets plenty of sunshine, it looks great post mowing. Fescue is a better shade grass here.

I've got 2 stalwart BG customers...they even reseed BG every year. They are from Penn and Ohio originally and insist on trying to make it work. I finally got through to one of them as he actually used a fescue blend this month/year when he reseeded.
