Wow!! Guys--Stop the press! You have to understand how my city works along with the City Planning Commission. Anytime a new sidewalk, street, embankment, and all other Capital Improvements is made, they always use the local growing Bermuda grass. Locally, it is Tifway 419 and I can attest that I hate it...........with a passion as it doesn't perform as it states in their publications. I had nothing to do with this type of turf as this is pretty much the only available grass other than Emerald Zoysia and Palisades. Didn't mean to get the reel mower's heckles all worked up. All I was trying to tell you is................This grass can be cut taller and perform well! But you are going to have to baby it with a syringe. This clinic is paying me well 12 months of the year to keep it looking at its best.
