Since I've moved here I have read and heard a LOT about how terrible Bahiagrass is to mow. From "it grows 1" a day" to "it doesn't cut cleanly". So far, I have not experienced that kind of problem mowing it. BUT....it has not been very wet and growth has been only about 3-4" a week. Even on thick newly sodded Bahia under irrigation my Exmark and Toro mowers are cutting it pretty cleanly at moderate speeds. What's more, even with mulching kits on two of the mowers, it's giving a nice look after mowing. No clumps, no stringers, I was very surprised. It IS a cow pasture grass, at least all the examples of it I see. Mixed in with weeds and rarely in irrigated areas. And you're not going to get a dense carpet of the stuff usually, but as far as finished look vs. expectations, I haven't seen any problems yet. Am I about to find out differently when the afternoon rains become more regular and seedheads appear? Or is it only tough to mow compared to the excellent St. Augustine, which is the nicest mowing grass I've ever come accross? It'd be nice to hear from anyone with experience mowing other grasses like Fescue or Bermuda as well as Bahia to see how they compare. I don't want to make the mistake of underbidding on numerous large parcels of the stuff. I actually noticed more of a problem on a small patch of sparse common Bermuda on my own lawn when I was mowing it a 3.5" like the rest of the yard. The seedheads of it wouldn't cut cleanly with the 44" toro. I am getting really NICE results with a 48" lazer hp w/ 23hp kawai and their mulching kit. The only negative is quickly dulling blades from the sand on the sparse areas. So, someone with Bahia experience, fill me in.
