    Definitely late fall to make room for snow blowers for winter. Unfortunately most stores stop ordering mowers in early to late summer and there isn't too much to pick from.

    Re: best time to buy a mower

    Now is a good time. Look for the sales -- Lowes and Home Depot usually have price reductions starting in August. What kind are you looking for?

    hire a landscaping service, changes your life.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Don't do this unless you have a monstrous yard.

    End of August is when I've seen them go on sales in the past

    You didn't even ask which half you get.

    Re: best time to buy a mower

    If someone is looking for a garden tractor go buy one at the State Fair. The dealers don't like hauling things home and will make great deals. Same is true if you are looking at John Deere Gators or Cub Cadet Big Country. Many dealers let the fair use these items for promotional and will happily deal on the item to be picked up after fair.

    This same strategy will work on most women at the fair also.


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