Final fall mowing...cut it short for winter?
I'm in the southern NY area. I'm going to put down the late fall fertilizer (slow release) in a week or so around Thanksgiving. I normally cut/mulch the lawn at 4 inches.
Should I lower it for the final cut (just before I put down the fertilizer) to prevent the snow + any remaining leaves from matting down the grass over the winter? Or is 4 inches still fine?
