    When do ya'll stop completely (if ever) mowing and just do fall cleanups. And for those of you who do stop what if a few weeds pop up in the yard?

    Stop when the grass stops growing. Start when the leaves start falling.

    Around here one just naturally flows into the other. I start mowing around the first of April and mow until around the first of Nov. I usually just keep coming every week but start on leaves instead of grass. Most years that lasts until around Christmas. A little break and then in March; back to spring clean-up!

    I just keep on mowing the lawns that are still growing. I have mowed lawns all the way up to Thanksgiving before. Sometimes I mow lawns when I do fall clean ups as well.
