Being no expert at how other do this I am wondering what the best way to cut tall grass, lets say 7-8" down to 3.25". Should I cut the grass at 3.25 and then go over it at a higher setting. Or should i cut just a little off at a time, say 2" the first pass and 2" the second pass. I mow alot of overgrown lawns and would like the method that leaves the least possible clipping problems. I know I have read post where they cut it with a side discharge the first pass at the lower height and them go over it with a mulcher deck at a slightly higher setting to make the clippings disappear. I will be side discharging only. What works best for you. I have been cutting it to 3.25 on the first pass and then raising the deck to spread clippings the second pass on nicer lawns. Grass is growing extremely fast right now due to high amounts of rain. All comments welcome.
