    I had 5 to mow Friday, it looked like rain, so I was
    cutting at 7:15 A.M.
    I saw a couple of people come out of their homes
    and look my way.
    How early do you guys start ?

    No earlier than 8 am.

    In some areas there may even be regulations against excessive noise before a certain time of ady.
  3. Of course it’s better to mow a vacant house or lot or whatever that early. If I don’t have one of those to start off the day, then I’ll rotate the wake-up mow to different homes. Neighbor’s are potential new customers. City ordinance allows people to mow here from 7am to 9pm.

    Something that just occurred to me, if you were to mow the same lawn that early, then you’d only be aggravating one group on a regular basis, instead of most everyone a few times. Have to think about that …

    NOT good! WAY too early for a residential area.
    8 would be the absolute earliest. This (7 a.m.) is prior to the disturbing the peace hours, I believe, for most noise ordinance areas. I would be trying my HARDest to find something else to do that would be quiet until the right time came.

    We all split out of the yard around 7:30 - 7:45, so I guess it's not until 8 or after the first Kawi is cranking up.
