cutting the lawn
« on: January 14, 2019, 15:08 »
Is it too early to consider this task yet  (Please say YES)   no seriously, it has put on a little bit of growth, and I have noticed a few people around have cut theirs.  ?

Yes  :D

I suppose if the ground isn't wet and waterlogged you could do it, but given there's a cold snap forecast I wouldn't risk it.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Leave it till after the cold spell but can cut at a high level say 2" as long as it is dry. Best not use if you have a heavy rear roller on the mower.

I mow mine throughout winter if its not water logged and no frost expected but only on a high setting using a rotary mower (I think cylinder ones cut the ground up?).

it keeps it looking nice and removes any debris to help with my never ending task of cutting down on moss :(
