    Ok we all know that Bermuda likes it short.

    I have been mowing Bermuda at 1.5" to 2" on some lawns.

    It takes a while for the Bermuda to start its horizontal growth and some customers are concerned with their lawn being cut too short.

    Ok so what height can I cut Bermuda and have it look good basically if I cant cut at 1.5" I feel that I should probably go ahead and move up to 2.5" because the results seem to look better.

    What do you guys say, if you dont cut at 1.5" what height are you guys cutting at.

    Right now I'm cutting at 1.5 to 1 3/4 inches in order to help it green up.Once summer starts,I'll raise it to 2 - 2 1/4.You can cut it at 2.5 and it looks great.However,I wouldn't do it just yet as Bemuda is just now starting to green up and the taller grass will shade the Bermuda trying to grow.
