Bermuda Grass – Should I Leave It Higher Than In The Summer?

Q: As fall begins, do you recommend leaving the height of my bermuda grass a little higher than how I have cut it all summer?

A: Your instincts are good. Giving the grass increased height now will help protect it from cold weather. The most practical advice is to raise your mower’s height by one notch, around half an inch. The taller grass also protects the plant crown from damage when people walk across your lawn in winter.
