What is too early to start mowing your lawn on a weekend?

No real "additional" information - just curious as to your opinion!

  • if you are in a close neighborhood, not before 9am on the weekends I would think.
    Seems like the grass would still be too wet that early anyway from dew.

  • We start mowing on nice days around 8 during the summer, when school is out. I don't live in the middle of town though if I did I would wait to start until 9. Let's face it around here, the kids are up and out playing by 8 it's not a big deal.

  • I don't mow before 9am. Usually I do it in the evening around 6 or 7ish, because I don't want to bother my neighbors in the am.

  • I think it should be 9. But clearly my neighbors think differently and they will start before 7! I don't really like those particular neighbors and this is just one of the reasons

  • Our neighbors are up mowing at 7 am on weekends. It;s certainly long enough to need to be mowed.

  • Oh my opinion is that 7 am mowing is rude to your neighbors btw but I don't call the cops and report them or anything (by law they are supposed to wait until 9 for the sound ordinances).

  • I just hire the neighbor's teenager. That way I know it isn't waking anyone up.

  • I also hate if anyone's mowing after 8pm.

  • I think about 9 AM or later on the weekends is common courtesy.
