    Last year I started cutting the 2 week in February but this year so far it has rained almost every other day and the ground is like mush. It has been cooler too so the weeds really have not started yet.

    Down here it never stops. Goes from weekly to biweekly, to atleast once a month. But never stop entirely.

    We start doing spring cleanups 1st of March and then start into the mowing schedule. Fescue starts early and the Zoisia and burmuda come in later.

    Always nice to take a few visits now to the end of march and get the warm season turfgrass cut down. Every couple of weeks for fescue until march
