Would it be too late in the season to start mowing with a reel mower? I've just been enlighten to what they do for Bermuda grass and being a lawn nut now I have to have one!!! I've been using a rotary at about 2" HOC and would love to get a reel and be at about 3/4 HOC. Don't want to kill my lawn though if it's too late to change this season. I'm in North Texas; thanks!! Also I know I would have to level maybe a couple of times, the builder did a terrible job with my sod and my yard is pretty bumpy in areas.
