Pissed me off in Hawaii when I couldn't wash my car before 10am. By that time the sun was too high and it'd impossible to prevent dried water spots.

If I couldn't cut my grass at 8am then my damn neighbors can't have their stupid dogs and babies making nosie at that time either. Don't move into a neighborhood where your neighbors have lawns to mow, fracking idiots.

I voted 9am . . . but I like the Painthappy metric and was going to post something similar.

that said I usually don't get to the yardwork till 10ish or later

all this begs the question - what is too late in the day for it? For me if I don't get to it by 4pm I will skip for the day. That grew out of the fact that living in SoCal and having to do yardwork year round that is the practical latest to get it done without rushing and without mounting headlights on the mower

This makes me glad that I do not live in a neighborhood. I voted 7am as I like to start around 6am. That way I am done by 4 or 5 ish in the afternoon.

Interesting results. I was taught you don't ever start mowing on the weekends before 10:00.
The neighbor's started mowing at 7:30 or 8:00, which I thought was an outrage. Maybe not so much.

just mow yours at midnight to 1 am. Those tractors have lights for a reason.

they like to have 3 o'clock nappies and 9 pm bedtimes so that they can get up at the crack of crow**** and be an *******. you probably have the right to do the same.

The lawn isn't going to escape if you don't mow it at sunup.

Same but you’re in the Midwest like me. If it’s on the weekend and before 10 you’re wrong. Weekday, 8a is fine.
