@lawnmaveric HOC right now is 3.5. Plan to reel mow in spring once it fills in. Unless I get impatient and just start dropping now 😂

In my experience, it will fill faster if you mow it at 2in or even lower.

Looks excellent nice job. A pure KBG is a lovely thing. I always kept a Reno of kbg shorter like 2 to 2.5. I feel it gives the grass more space to fill in and lets it breathe more. Keep spoon feeding it you will have artificial turf look soon!
