I run all my mowers as high as they will go with my cool season grass.Some grass as I understand it likes to be cut short..The longer you cut it the longer it will servive the summer heat..

Here in Ohio, most of the lawncare experts recommend NO SHORTER than 3". My deck maxes out at about 3", so that's where it gets cut pretty much year 'round.

As high as it will go year round here in NC keeps the grass looking good.

The first couple of cuts in the spring and the last few in the fall I set the deck low. during the summer I do as the rest of you and set it as high as it wll go, which isn't as high as I'd like. :( Steve
