If you’re like most people, you don’t start mowing your lawn until you absolutely have to. For many homeowners, that means starting in April, or sometimes even later than that. At Green Grass Guys, we have some different advice for you that will make you question what you always thought to be true about the best time to start mowing your lawn.

When is the Best Time to Start Mowing?

No one ever thinks about mowing their lawn when the snow is flying. But it can take people a long time to make that mental shift into spring-like thinking once the snow stops. In the “old days” it was believed that you shouldn’t mow your lawn between the end of October and the end of February.

We don’t believe this to be true at all. Our snow usually stops after the beginning of February. Once it’s gone, that’s the best time to start mowing.

The Benefits of Early Mowing and Cape Girardeau Lawn Service

You want your lawn to look beautiful, and to do that it has to start growing again. Mowing it is going to kick-start that process, bringing it out of its winter slumber, so to speak. All you need to focus on is clipping off about 25% from the top of the grass. This is enough to begin its natural growth process.
