Hey Doc – having a full irrigation system installed this week in central NC. Any tips on things to do to get the bermuda to bounce back from the stress it’s going through this week? I am planning on leveling the trenched areas with 50/50 sand & soil mixture to promote the bermuda growth. Should i be doing anything else to help recovery?

Why would you cut off all the green? When I see that I would definitely raise it up, hate it that short.

Just watched the video on cutting turf short. I have bermuda in the front and Saint Augustine in the back so I do not have a reel mower. I can drop my Honda shorter, is that what you would recommend? For how long? All summer? thank you

Good Evening, can you please do a detailed video on lowering the Mclane mower to the A position? I just recently got the mower you recommended but when I lower into A position it is scalping to roots and not making an even cut.
