I stopped cutting the grass in September. I will not cut it again until April.

Every 10 days, depending on rainfall and sunshine. The little bit of gas it takes to mow my lawn is worth it to have it looking as good as possible. I use approximately 1/8 of a gallon at $3.50 a gal. works out to almost 44 cents to mow my lawn. I am poor but can afford 44 cents. Now if I were to pay for labor, that would be another story.

When it needs it, with the temperatures dropping, it won't be long before it's time to winterize the lawnmower. YEA!!!

The apartment complex mows every week year-round on Monday. The mowers even labored on Labor Day! (We'll see what they do on Christmas!)

We have to mow whenever it's dry enough, since there is a huge area that needs it. And we don't have to worry about gas prices - we use electric.

I have not mown my lawn in years. Gardeners do that now. Prior to that, I used a manual push mower for years.

Because it rains nearly everyday I mow the grass every few few weeks. Last week when I had a loll in the rain I mowed the lawn but had to hurry because it started raining again.

I discourage my husband from mowing. I don't want to spend the money on gas. But he does every weekend still.

Mom was complaining that the well-watered grass was about to take over the place.

I commented that the farming was also benefiting.
