    What did everyone mow at this yr. I stayed consistent at 3.25" sometimes 3.5". Next year I'm thinking the range will be 3.75"-4". Less watering, Less disease. Overall better appearance. I'd like to hear some thoughts.

    I have one customer that I cut at least 3 different settings. And still I adjust them to current weather conditions due to dry.wet soil. Back yard Bahia 3.25" Side yard St aug/Bahia mix 3.5" Front yard St. Aug 4"-4.25" Front yard ditch 4.5".
    But I will admit I never go below 3.25" for Bahia and 4" for St. Augustine.
    And yes sometimes I need to blend in the transition areas with the line trimmer.

    For what? Moving a pin from one setting to another because they are either different turf types or situations? I could see more charge if they added a bunch of stuff to the landscape but not for just simply changing deck height.

    2.5 to 4.5 for me. And yes one lawn that gets different heights because it has Flortam, Common Bermuda, and Argentine Bahia.

    2-4 inches, depending on turf, and what the customer likes.
