    So I have a lawn that is mostly Fine Fescue and it seems as if it has been mowed around 4 to 4.5" previously and seems to be fine though spotty near the sidewalk where salt has been spread.

    Anyways, my question is should I continue to cut at this height or cut at the max "optimum" mowing height 3"?

    Thanks

    cut at 3.5 if your getting plenty of rain. In a hot spell with little rain go to 4

    Oh, what you do is say you want to LOWER the cut.
