I would say you have atleast 4 to 5 weeks. Once the first frost comes the grass will slow down as we get more frosts. But remember the leafs will keep coming till the trees are bare, therefore I would say the end of october maybe early november up to thanksgiving if you are lucky. just my opinion will be interested to see what others half to say. Your last week of mowing I would clean out all flower beds etc of leafs and cut the grass a half inch shorter so it will hold up during the winter. Looking forward to what others half to say on this subject.

I mow to the second week of October, and then skip about 2 weeks and start some cleanups. Last year the first snow fall came on November 13, but it cleared up in a few days and the next one didnt come until December 20(i think). So this week and 3 maybe 4 more if the temps stay this hot.
