When do you start mowing?

Recommended Posts

I have been "thinking spring" lately, Iam looking forward to cutting the grass, planting the garden, and planting flowers. Im curious at about what time of year do other members from around the country start to cut their grass. I am from just west of Madison Wisconsin and I start cutting grass around the middle of April. When do you get to start cutting your grass? Ryan :) THINK SPRING

Whenever it's tall enough to mow and I'm just west of Madison also. But I'm not even close to thinking about Spring yet. I'm still adjusting the snowblower to run good with the tractor. But hey, I be ready for next year

Ryan not to be a smarta**, but I start mowing when Eva starts ragging me about the yard looking shaggy. That's normally around early/mid April here in Kentucky. Larry

About a week after the damn stuff turns green. It jumps out of the ground, probable have to mow twice a week until july with all this moisture. I'm just grateful I have a 7119H with a 48" deck, otherwise it gets tricky with 5-6 acres. The twin can handle heavy stuff and this year I have the PTO vacuum system.

Late April early May here. I'm usually doing the mowing and tilling about the same time. It will be easier this year with more than one tractor.
Same here, one for mowing and one for roto tilling. Grass cutting not a requirement to get to work like snow removal and I let it all get high enough for a cut across the whole yard when ever that is.

Here in Central Mn. I don't change the equipment over until late April, early May. Will start mowing around the end of May, have to fertilize and dethatch this year. Floyd

We usually get a decent snow storm here in upstate Ny sometime in March. After that, it starts to rain. Til about june. If you don't go out in the rain between late April and june and mow, you'd better have a healthy running tractor, and take the support bar off the bottom of the shute so she can really spit it out. I try to start as soon as it greens and grows. Rob

I guess around the end of April, usually by that time it starts to grow like a jungle! so during the fast growing time I use the Kubota with the 5ft. Douglas finish mower on the back, its just faster this way.NOT AS GOOD A CUT, just faster. John

Started this last weekend, cut the old dead last falls grass. In S.E. NC I always cut the dead grass real low, almost scalp it on purpose. (It was a little early but I just put my newly painted Cub 124 back together and couldn't resist). Also got the 4211H out for a little ride and washed her off. Mike

Ryan, First cut was last weekend. And it smelled sweet!..LOL Have had my taters in the ground for three weeks now and finished tilling the rest of the garden last weekend. I'll plant all 'maters and peppers this weekend. Peas and beans the next. We hit 80 degrees yesterday, but going to be raining by Saturday. It's definately spring here in Texas..........
