We had our first frost in Central NJ today.
DHicks,
Why do you wait to mow? Is there some reason you shouldn't mow frosted grass? What am I missing here? Thanks.

BRL - Not a good idea to mow frosty grass as the grass tissues are frozen thus enhancing your chances of damaging the grass. I have mowed grass with frost with no affect, but you never know.

first frost

This morning ,in Delaware, we awoke to a light frost. Roof tops and windshields had it but not too much on the lawn.

Not only is frosted grass damaged from being stiid,it also burns it wherever you applt pressure to it,whether your stepping on it or the mower wheels are running over it.I would not ever mow in the frost,no matter what,but i see guys doing it all the time.

Just checked, got a little frost in my freezer. Other than that, low sixties for the harshest part of winter.
