I would say anytime before 9am if you live in the suburbs. I have mower up until dark, but only because I sometimes work late.

In response to “Some wait until the grass goes to seed...

I think I misread the question. In the morning before the sun gets too strong...

As in the time of day? We get dewy here. So, too early, before the sun hasnt dried it, wet grass cuts unevenly. Too late, same problem.

Usually after the grass is dry. But already 7:40 a.m. our neighbor is cutting his. Way too early.

If you use a push mower, you better mow it before it gets high enough to look like it really needs mowing.

If you have rye, you really should pay to get sod. Then you have to mow twice a month, instead of twice a week.

They usually show up around Noon or so to cut my back lawn. Depends on their schedule I guess.

That is one of the most irritating things about living in the suburbs, but it needs to be done. My sister's neighbor mows at 9 AM on Saturday or Sunday morning. It isn't that I'm not awake, I just don't want to hear that noise so early. When he finishes, another neighbor begins and it's like that all day. There should be a law against weekend mowing.

Going by noise restrictions where I live ... between 8am and 10pm is okay.

Too early, too late? There is only one answer to fit both'of'em... When you are dead! Too early to rise up and hava a revenge on the lawn... Too late to have a revenge on the lawnower.

Well I live on a golf course and the maintenance crew mow the lawn (with special mowers for the greens and fairway) in the early morning, around 5:30 to 6 am.

As long as you don't think people are sleeping, then is there a too early or too late? As long as you have enough light as well.
