Default Lawn Mowing Etiqutte - When to do it on a weekend

Had a interesting and animated discussion with a bloke at a recent BBQ about when people mow on the weekend.

During these Summer months I tend to weed/mow on a Sunday arvo (starts round 4.30 finish just before 6) as it allows me to get a lot of other things done first and also allows me the opportunity to have a late afternoon rewarding beer !

This shocked and agitated my new found foe who castigated me for disregarding the Sunday arvo sleep of my neighbours !!!

Any opinions out there ?

PS. Realise etiquette misspelt but couldn't work out how to fix it !!!

When I was about 12, I mowed the lawn at about 7am on a Saturday morning and got lambasted for it by a neighbour. After that, I would do it in the afternoon. I would think, though, that anything from 8:30am onwards should be fine.

3am, Sunday morning for best results...

Really, anything before 10am on a Sunday is unacceptable. I recon just after lunch...

TBH, i'm lucky enough to have a neighbour who loves gardening and mows our lawns and takes care of the plants. Ahh...Beer barter...mans greatest achievement...

Need to clarify something ! The bloke complaining wasn't a neighbour of mine - just some nob I met at a BBQ.

He religiously mows first thing on a Saturday morning. I normally have a hangover then - plus Sat morning is my lazy time after a hard weeks work.

4:30pm ???...what a lazy sh%t. Poor him...got to have a snooze in the late afternoon on a weekend !!.

IMO you can mow any time are 9am on a Saturday or a Sunday...

Get the line trimmer out and rev it heaps to wake the neighbours up after they finish their parties at 4am. Works a treat.
