    Just curious ... How short do you mow your own personal lawn? I mow mine at 3½" most times ... and 4" mid summer if it is hot and dry.

    Pooring down rain here in Indy right now ... BREAK TIME!

    About 2.5" in Mar/Apr, then 3" May/Jun/Jul/Aug, and back down to 2.5" in Sep/Oct. I'm not sure why I choose to do it that way, just something started and never stopped. :confused:

    11/2 to 2 inches. Mostly rural areas. Folks want to know what they are stepping on.

    I mow mine at 3.5...My wife is the same way, she would cut it to the dirt if she knew how to change the height. I sold my Deere rider for that reason. She'd be a great boot camp barber.
