Old thread, I know, but I'm confused.
My grasses and climate suggest that I keep a 1.5" height. (Zoysia and Bermuda). If I allow them to grow taller, they get real funny about turning reddish and also making seed pods, which is fine but not all the time.
I can't imagine either of these grasses ever even getting 4" high, they are spreading/horizontal growers.
BUT I want to encourage deeper rooting, so I don't know what would work. The ideal cut height for both is 1.5", and believe you me, they look spectacular when it's mowed nice and tight like that.
