When do you start and stop mowing the grass where you live?

In central south Ohio we start in mid-late March and end around Thanksgiving This year it's been a banner time for grass to grow and need to be cut. We didn't even have a brownout in August and it's just been mow, mow and mow some more. I'm tuckered out.

When do other parts of the country start and stop mowing?

Typically similar here, although start date depends on when it gets dry enough not leave ruts in the lawn.

Stop date might be a few weeks earlier.

Same here.

Looking forward to a break from the fuel and maintenance bills.

Right around dark if I start late. I mowed lawn today, only 1/2 ac of it. Growth has slowed a bunch in the last week vs the previous few. I have plenty of pine straw and don't care to rake 13th-cutting fescue for mulch.

I’ll probably mow 1 more time this year but it’s about done. I’ll mow again sometime in March.

East Central Ohio, start late March/early April, usually late October/early November the last time. Mowed today, it needed it, hope that is it for this year…

Never really stops here in South Louisiana. It slows to about once a month for January and February, then back to weekly in March.
