Common Bermuda prefers mowing to 1 to 1-1/4 inches in full sun. Bermuda forms a very poor turf in any shade and should not be planted there. When you mow Common Bermuda, your goal is to have the target height after having removed only 1/3rd of the grass with each mowing. So if your Bermuda is in full sun, you should wait until it reaches 2-1/4 inches and remove about 3/4 inch. Keep your mower blade razor sharp!
