I never seem to get a new customer whose grass isn't already too tall to cut at the recommended mowing height. (I'm thinking mostly of bermuda and zoysia.) If I were to reduce it to, say, two inches, only brown stems would be left, and I fear such a short cutting at this time of year might damage the turf. On the other hand, just cutting an inch won't give it that manicured appearance the customer wants. What can I do aside from waiting until the lawn is completely dormant in winter to drop the height? Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
