I find I need to keep it at 3 1/2" and not fertilize it a lot, but leaving it at 3 1/2" in the fall when it doesn't get a lot of sun has helped it a lot.
But that brings me to my Fall problem; I have read and believe you should lower the HOC to 2 to 2 1/2" to help fight snow mold. This area will get snow piled on it all winter. In the spring the FF seems to really go through a growth spurt over night, but Im not sure if cutting it low hurts it.
Should I cut it down to 2" in October after the first frost when it pauses, or am I better off leaving it at 3 1/2" all winter?

Personally? I don't seem to get snow mold while the properties around me might. Why?
I have no idea. Now, in recent years, that's obvious. None of us do. There's been no appreciable lasting snowfall.
