    Most regular mowing is usually done by the middle of October. After that it's leaf cleanups and touchup mowing until closing on the last day of November. Regular mowing begins in April. That's 27 weeks of grass cutting.

    I stop mowing about the about the last week of November or December, depending on the weather. I really expect an early freeze this year and mowing may end much earlier. I don't know about you, but we had some 45 degree dawns here in Frederick.
