This may have been covered before.
Is it a good time to start cutting my lawn? I'm in North Dublin and there is some frost most nights lately.
The grass is getting a bit long for my push mower and I may have to strim if left any longer.

Patricks Weekend is usually the time to let the Mower Cough and Belch out its 1st Black Smoke of the Season...just make sure to keep the Blade up about 3 Notches so as not to give the Grass a Heart attack...only I was cleaning out a few Rose Beds today I had planned Mowing mine...but tomorrow PG I'll be doing Handbrake Skids on mine and looking forward to inhaling that special smell you only get from the 1st cut...

Last week when I was passing through Clondalkin on my way Home the Council were out cutting like it was the middle of August...enjoy your Mowing...

I did a tidy up cut a few weeks ago. I took little off the height of the lawn, it was just to neaten it up. I probably shouldn't have though. Most of my lawn was dry but there is a bit on a slope which is still like bog (of all places who'd a thought the wettest part of the lawn is the bit with the steepest slope!) and I left lawnmower lines up and down this bit. I think then the Leather jackets got to the lawn shortly after as it has started to go a bit yellow. I sprayed it during the week and couldn't believe the amount of the critters sitting on the soil a day later. 2 Days later and my wife counted 45 crows at one point on a small section of the lawn!

Anyway my lawn is still waterlogged and so I'm waiting until it's not spongy before the next cut.
