Doesn't make sense to me!
because we lower the deck down a inch or half inch. but not until they grass starts to slow down.
Ok, but why are you lowering the deck down?
I think the reason why is so lawn care companys can come in and plat winter grass. I think this is the reason why and at lest that what I have read.
From what I've heard most people do it for the added ease of blowing leaves across it (short=less drag=easier).
Have you ever seen long grass that went through a winter (snow cover)? It falls down and looks like crap in the spring and is not as easy to deal with in the spring. Also, the leaves deal...Easy blowin'.
yep, leaf removal makes sense! That's the only thing I can see comming out of it.
Snow Mold would be the reason to cut it short for the winter. Read this:
Greens up faster in the spring, leaves blown off by wind easier, less chances for mold.
It makes a big difference if you have to do a spring clean-up
