    Ok, what is a good height to cut Fesque grass in NC. I am thinking about 3.25 inches so it doesn't die in the hot sun without water. Is this OK or not?

    I always cut fescue at 3.5" or 4", unless the customer insists on a shorter cut. The taller you can cut fescue the better. It allows the grass to put more energy into root growth, which will make it tougher and more drought resistant.
