    What week did you start mowing last year?
    What zone/ part of the country are you from?

    And when was the last week of mowing in the season for your area?

    I believe April 18th last year was when a few places started needing to be cut, but the 25th was when I started cutting everything for the season. I finished up mowing the last full week of October (23-29).

    I'm from Jackson, Michigan, which is in south-central Michigan.

    Normally start the 3rd or 4th week of March and cutting ends around the first week of november. Usually continue mowing to pick up leaves untill December sometime...

    THIS year I started working full time the week of March FIRST! Got in about 3 weeks worth of spring work and now it's winter again.
