    Depends on what type of grass your cutting.

    Duh... Probably should have added that. I'm up in the northeast so it's all cool season grass mostly Kentucky bluegrass.

    Kentucky blue grass needs to be cut often and should be cut at around two and a half inches (2 1/2") Give it about an inch then cut it back to 2 1/2 again and water it often.

    I'm in Connecticut too and my cutting heights on my customers lawns range from 2.5 to 4 inches depending on the lawn and the time of year. 3 inches is about right for most lawns here increasing to 3.5 to 4 inches in mid summer to keep them from burning out.

    I cut my lawn at 3.5 last year (kbg,fescue,rye). It seemed to be too long as the grass had a tendency to lay over. This year I am going to cut at 3 inches.
