    Hey, I was woundering.... how far do you guys cut your grass? I cut my clients around 2 -2 1/2. I cut my yard at 3, because my yard is thick and have very little weeds. It gives it a nice green look, and when I do stripes it gives it a Green/White look (which I think is the best cut besides the dimond look).

    I'm at 3.25" in the summer. A little shorter in the cooler seasons.

    I mow all of my lawns between 1.25 and 1.5. the reason I mow them so low is this. all of my lawns are bermuda/weed mix, zoysia, and seashore. all of these grasses have the recomended height of 1.5 to .75 inches

    I cut mine about a 1/2 mile if the yard is that big.
