    do any of you cut when it is below 32 outside. I have been sitting for two days now but dont want to risk injuring the blade of the grass. Just wanting to know what everyone else does.

    mow it so it goes dormant and end the season. won't hurt it just cause the color to bleach out. now if it frozen then yes you can casue some damage.

    I would say mow it. Shorter the grass is going into the winter less spring dmaage you will have. Shorter grass will also help keep down on the amount of snow mold...

    It was 19 degrees when I went out this morning. Too much to get done to let the weather get in my way. Grass is pretty much done here tho, so not much grass cutting, if any, to worry about. Mostly just leaf pickup, but I did give final cuts on a couple accounts.

    Yep we did yesterday and today. Have to get them done now before the snow falls. We just waited until it warms up to right around freezing or just below. The only part that was cold was my face. I am hearing snow for next week but I don't know who to believe on that. Still about a week before we are done. All the freaking leaves came down at once and the customers are calling too.
