I’ve been enjoying and learning a ton from all of your content. I was wondering how and if the Bermuda program could be applied to Zoysia as well and what specific guidance you have for that type of lawn. I’m in Alabama.

Just bought a McLane you suggested. I cant get the setting below 7/8″ and Dolphin indicated thats about as low as it goes. Can you do a video showing how to adjust the Mclane GR-25 down to the 0.5″ level?
