Mowing your lawn at 7 am is too early to mow your lawn. It’s not too early for your grass, but it may be too early for your mower, especially if the grass is wet with dew. It may also be too early for your neighbors who are trying to sleep and may be awakened by the noise of your mower.
Mid-Morning (8–10 AM) This is the best time to mow your lawn, just after the dew or daily watering has dried off, but before it really gets hot. The grass is dry and standing tall, perfect for an even trim. Make sure your lawn mower blade is sharp, to avoid ragged edges, which will make your lawn slow to rejuvenate.
The best time to start lawn mowing is in the mid-morning, or between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The sun is higher in the sky and at this time grass has dried out a bit from the early morning dew and any irrigation.
Since the earliest you can mow your lawn according to the law is 7:00am, it is likely the time window was chosen with that in mind. So, in the morning, the earliest you can start is 7:00am, and, obviously, the later you start mowing the more likely it is that your neighbors are awake already.
It is rude and you will be spoken about negatively. Sunday is frowned upon – UNLESS the neighbors on either side of you also do it on Sundays consistently. As a rule: Your lawn should be mowed during working hours during the week (11am-5pm) – no early mornings ever.
6:30 PM is perfectly reasonable to mow your lawn. I would say anything from 8AM to 8PM is fine.
Noise from mowing and other power tools is allowed: from 8am to 8pm on Sundays and public holidays and. from 7am to 8pm on any other day.
How Tall is the Grass? Give your spring grass a chance to develop strong, healthy roots. This means waiting until it’s at least 2 inches tall before mowing. Even then, stick to the rule of not taking off more than a third of its length so that it doesn’t die before it’s had a chance to develop.
AVOID MOWING DURING EXTREME HEAT When your lawn is particularly stressed from heat or drought, it can be limited in its ability to recover from mowing and can be damaged even more. Instead, mow the grass after a rainfall or after irrigation day.
It’s best to wait for wet grass to dry before mowing. Wet grass clippings can clog your mower, causing it to choke and spit out clumps of wet grass that could smother and kill your lawn if left unraked. It’s best to wait for wet grass to dry before mowing. Answer: It’s not a good idea to cut your grass while it’s wet.
Even worse, the wet clumps of grass that end up spread out across the lawn will stick together and block sunlight from evenly reaching all the blades of grass. Plus, diseases spread much faster in wet grass. If you know a heavy rain is coming, then try to mow your lawn before the storm hits.
You can safely water your lawn after mowing whenever it needs moisture. However, you should prepare for this properly. Watering in the middle of a summer day can cause the water to evaporate from the landscape quickly. To avoid these problems, mow your dry lawn early in the morning and water immediately afterward.
Last Cut Before Winter; How Low Should You Mow? Cut your lawn to possibly the shortest height you have all season. The ideal height is around 2 1/2 inches. Cut it too low and the grass might not be long enough to photosynthesize and provide nutrients to the roots.
A: Keep mowing so long as the grass is growing. So long as there’s sunlight, moisture and warm-enough soil, the grass will keep going. But once the weather gets consistently cold enough that the soil in the root zone goes down to around 40 degrees, growth will slow to a crawl and stop.
