Frank, expert info always valued.
Have a member of the family who also works on Bowling Green and golf course and he talks exactly as you do. The dedication, fastidiousness, the treatments all to produce that perfect green carpet. For him and his bosses this work is essential.
like you I leave grass quite a bit longer......people seem obsessed with scalping their grass, less mowing they think, and then wonder why weeds and brown grass appear. leaving it longer means it stays green longer esp in hot weather but I mow twice a week if I can....doesn't take long; a medium lawn and a small one...and this helps keep weeds in check.
Will be out there again later....ah! The smell of mown grass and those stripes (Love my stripes)
