    I live in florida and my question is: When do you consider the beginning of growth season?:blob2:
  2. When the grass is growing

    I have no Idea in FLA

    But around MO we start mowing in March just before the grass starts to grow. we like to get the grass cut once before the grass grow to get the slow growing and dorment stuff mulched up

    I agree with the above posts. I think I end up with an average of about 36 cuts. For me things really seem to get going about mid June, then non stop till around Oct. Winter is great.
