So my neighbors don't hate me

I want to mow my backyard this morning, early, but don't want my neighbors to egg my house for waking them up too early on a Sunday.

So, what is the earliest I can start mowing in your opinion? Is there some kind of etiquette on this?

maybe around 8am, if its warm in your area that would be completely understandable to do it before it gets too hot.

Not before 9am... a lot of cities have a noise ordinance.. you need to find that out first...

We just started renting a house that has about an acre of land on it.  Come summer, you can bet we will be out early (between 8 and 9) mowing and doing yard work.

I'm glad you're being considerate of your neighbors!  They'll definitely appreciate it and hopefully show you the same kindness when they want to do something loud outside.

i'd say between 8 and 9.  quiet hours here are 10pm-6am during the week and 12am-6am on the weekends, so maybe check local noise ordinances, too.  luckily, nobody has gotten the crazy idea to start mowing at 6 on a sunday morning here, lol.
