Just finished the 3rd cutting for March 2022.

Never before have I needed to cut this many times in March.

Weather speaks for itself as today it was 75’, a clear 20’ above average and near record temps.

Coming months again look above average.

Thanks!

I alternate each week: horizontal, vertical, and diagonal, then repeat.

How long before you can no longer see the stripes? I’ve always been curious.

Looking good. I cut low the first mow and the last mow. The rest of the year I cut at 3.5-4.0. These are the numbered settings. The grass needs to be lush to look best at the highest setting, and tightly trimmed and edged. Otherwise it looks a bit thin.

As a side note, I plan to topdress my lawn this year. Just debating paying to have it done or do it myself.
