I usually go short the last cut of the season. But I’m going to give it a try at around 3” this year. Will report back in the spring. If it’s to tall it’s a bear to rake, and I’ve have voles and snow mold at higher heights before.

No pro here either, but definitely by now I know what works and what doesn't.

I know NEVER to use Scott's Weed and Feed, how they still sell that stuff is beyond me. And for that matter never ever use a granular weed killer.

Time to winterize the lawn mower until spring now.

Keeping the deck set the same for an early spring cut.

I'd like to get one more mow in this year to mulch leaves but it probably won't happen. We've had high winds just about every days and I've got the leaves from the woods and the neighbors in my yard.

Leaves are long gone, especially today with winds gusting up to 55 mph.
