Curious - What Height setting to you use to mulch leaves
I've been mulching my leaves for about 5 years. My mower is a LB 10247 with a Gator blade. I actually get a better mulch when I pull the mower backwards on the 2nd pass. I think the flap of the deck bounces the leaves up for one last round of mulching.
Anyway I was wondering what height was used for people who mulch leaves. I use the 3 inch setting but I was wondering about setting it to 2.5 inches as I get a lot of leaf debris blowing out the sides.
I'm in Southern Michigan and I'm guessing my grass is rye or fescue. I don't fertilize or apply week killer, just aerate then over seed with the cheapest perennial grass I can find. I do this later in the fall after the leaves are mulched. I may spread some lime but that's about every 3 years.
So far I've had really good results mulching and keeping the grass at 3 to 3.5 inches during the warm season. Wondered if lowering the height to 2.5 inches to mulch would hurt as we've had several frosts?
