Look at this drawing. If the plant is the center of a clock, then the crown is indicated at about 4:00. Google "grass plant drawing"

Will look over the sheet. Thanks for posting a picture of the grass. That was helpful for me. What is wrong with the crown being an inch off the ground. Does this mean higher cutting?

Man, for all the references of KY-31 being very hardy and tough, it absolutely does not do well in any of the categories that i saw in the NTEP studys. Well i will share my experience when spring rolls around.

Sharing your experience next spring won't give you a proper baseline. Next Aug 15 will be much more accurate. Good luck.
