To cut the grass?

posting for a quick answer blush

What time is acceptable to cut the grass on a Tuesday morning? It's due to rain here from 9.30am for about a week and it could really do with doing before then 🤔

Unless your garden is massive and will take you ages, I'd say 8.45/9.00.

Thanks both, it's a front garden, takes all of 5 minutes! I wouldn't actually usually bother but the house looks so scruffy when it's long and we can't afford to have it paved like we plan to yet

10am. There are lots of people still on furlough.

9am is absolutely fine on a weekday

Dont pave unless you need the parking! Grass is so beneficial (and a soakaway)

And 9am

Unsociable hours are 11pm - 7am. I’d wait until 8am for an hours grace.

Interesting about the paving @Nanny0gg - I only want it paved because I hate cutting the grass and it makes the house look messy.... but I could probably live with it!

I’d say 9 on a weekday.

People are on furlough how is that relevant?!

Also agree don't pave it!

ExclamationPerfume Tue 16-Jun-20 07:53:27

@hopeishere because they are probably sleeping in as they are not going to work.

hopeishere Tue 16-Jun-20 07:58:25

Ah I see. Well lucky them! 9am is still fine in my book.

The furloughed can't expect the whole world to stop just because they're not having to get up for work.
And if 9am is the expected start time for outdoor work on houses, I wish someone would tell next door's builders. They start at 7am every day and, on one memorable weekend, 6am! angry

I don’t think you should worry about people having a lie in. I don’t usually get up until 8:30 on a weekday but wouldn’t care if someone started mowing at 8. I care more when my neighbours choose to do it at 8:30pm because I’m trying to get DD to sleep.

I would say 8 am on weekday and 9 at weekend.

I live on a really busy road and have never heard anyone mow their grass before 10am. It's so noisy.

SteelyPanther Tue 16-Jun-20 08:10:54

9am .

Glass45 Tue 16-Jun-20 08:11:41

I would say 9am. Building work is allowed to start at 8am, so I think that’s really reasonable.

Iloveappleproducts Tue 16-Jun-20 08:16:21

8am is a completely acceptable time to start any work in the week
It makes not a jot of difference if people are on furlough

covidco Tue 16-Jun-20 08:26:01

8am on a week day, 9am on a weekend. Round here, builders are allowed to start at 7am (and regularly do) or 8 on a Saturday so that is an hour after that!

8.30 is fine for a weekday
