    How many weeks left do you think we have left in the north east? (South East PA to be specific. (My guess is 5-6)

    Im in NH and we are expecting our first frost this week and the leaves are already changing. My guess here is 3 weeks left for mowing. Then fall clean up.

    Western mass, mowing usually ends mid October, and we're knee deep in leaves at that point.

    I'm hoping for a full week into Nov so thats 8 more weeks provided I don't have a freak ice storm or some off season hurricane again.

    In Southeastern Michigan grass can continue to grow right into November. It depends on the year. Last year I cut grass up to the 2nd week in November, then it snowed.

    I can usually keep mowing until the first or second week in Nov. Then I wash and put everything away regardless and have leaf work until just after mid Nov to finish, providing it doesn't snow like it did a few winters back. I had to finish the leaves in Jan when we had a few 50 degree days that melted away all the snow and ice, and allowed me to get the rest of the leaves cleaned up.
