    I am curious to know an avrg. what most of you mow at for height.I would also like to know about how often you mow an account .I know time frames will depend on weather so I just would like an idea of how often you mow based on peak season.

    i knock bermuda and zoysia down to 2" at the start of the season then let it grow into 2.5" if it starts getting near drought conditions i'll let it go to about 3".

    The first cut or two in spring I try and cut at 2.5" then after that I jump it to 3" and try to maintain at that height till it starts to get really hot and dry then I go to 3.5" to 4" depending on the quality of turf.

    In this area it will range from 3 1/4 to 5 inches. It all depends on the account. Welcome to lawnsite:waving:
