    How tall does this grass look? Do anyone have a downward shot of bermuda (any variety) at extremely low heights or heights in the 3-4" range? Just curious.

    I've heard a lot off people say their bermuda looks great cut at 3.5" and others say that they almost never cut above 1". I'm curious to see close up shots of what people are calling "Great looking bermuda."

    This grass is far from what I'd call great, but I do think it is pretty decent. It was cut with a JD 757 60" at 1.75". The blades weren't that sharp as you can tell. The grass isn't irrigated and probably had 2 fert applications this year. I can't remember if it is common or 419, my pictures aren't organized.
