    When to start mowing?

    When would be a good time to mow your lawn? With all this rain that we got this past week. The lawn is nice and green. It is also getting taller and taller. Looking at the radar it's suppose to be 80 out Monday. What do you fanatics think would be the best time for some yard work?

    When it needs it. Try to never cut more than 1/3 the height of the grass at one time.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: When to start mowing?

    Holy ****, you guys turn yard work into a Mars mission. When the grass gets high, mow it. When it gets high again, mow it again. How high is high? That's the beauty of it. You get to decide. Because IT'S YOUR ******* YARD!

    Re: When to start mowing?

    My lawn is going to need mowing real soon. With the rain we just recieved and the warmer temperatures you will probably hear the grass growing.

    Not if you live in Texas. Then, it's the HOA's yard and they determine for you when it's too tall.

    I only wish I was joking.

    Re: When to start mowing?

    I am fairly sure I've never mowed in March but will be doing just that this weekend.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
