    Obviously Bermuda is the predominant grass, but what other grasses can be cut using a
    reel mower? What about dwarf fescue? Some of the nurseries around here sell that seed.
     
  2. The ones I know are Bermuda, zoysia, and seashore paspalum.

    Colonial bent, creeping bent and velvet bent. I do believe that KBG can be cut with a reel if the HOC is higher than 11/2". Locke and Tru-Cut reels can be set to cut higher than 11/2".
