    How can you identify which species of grass you are cutting? How can you tell if its a warm or cold season grass? I need to know so i can set my deck at the correct height. thanks

    The way I did it was to go to The Home Depot and I picked up this book by Scotts called Lawns - Your Guide To A Beautiful Yard. It actually has alot of good info such as all the types of different grass profiles, fertilizing, mowing, watering, managing thatch and just a bunch of other helpful info. It helped with alot of basic info I was looking for. Then for the more specific questions, you ask or search on this site.

    Just a suggestion. It helped me obtain more detailed knowledge that I wanted to know.
