How high should I mow my lawn?

The manual says that at the highest setting it should mow at a 4 inch height, but I’m only getting 2 and 1/2 inches. (I’m 56 years old and have years of experience with St. Augustine lawns, which I believe should be cut between 3 and 1/2 and 4 inches.)

Can you put larger tires on a lawnmower?

Installing larger tires on your lawnmower means raising its minimum height. On a push mower, this means that you might not be able to go low enough to cut the grass. On a riding lawnmower, you will have to adjust the cutting deck to compensate for the difference. If you like to keep your lawn thick, this may not pose a problem.
