When to stop mowing your lawn

When to Stop Mowing The Lawn - of the United Kingdom have had snow fall already with more promised for the rest of us.

When the frost and snow is on the lawn, it is obvious that mowing your lawn is the last thing on your mind.  In the milder South East of England, the grass is still growing, slow but still growing.

There is still time to give your lawn it's last mow of the year.  Mowing the lawn will really lift the appearance of the complete garden ahead of the holiday season.  Once mown, get your mower into the lawn mower service centre ready for spring time.

If the weather remains mild over the Christmas and New Year holiday, and ground conditions permit, don't be shy to mow the lawn.  It will be better than going to the Christmas retail sales. 

You will not get much off the lawn when you mow it in December, probably only 15 - 25 percent compared to mowing in September but your lawn will love you for it!

If you are plagued by worm casts in the lawn, help is at hand in a worm cast control called CastClear.
