    the topdressing application that my lawn is about to receive will enable me to cut very low for next spring. currently its at 1.5- 2.0 and i hate it. have a lot of dimples every where

    I agree, top dressing will do the trick, but get yourself a reel mower to improve the cut.

    The thing that happens when you use a reel and consistently cut it short is the Bermuda grows horizontal and not vertical, just look at Chris's lawn, it didn't look that way before he topdressed and began cutting with a reel.
    Also using proper irrigation and a good fertilization plan helps, aerating also.
    You will need to cut twice weekly using a reel.
