Do I need my lawn mowed year round in Florida?

In Florida, the mowing season typically starts in late winter or early spring, around February or March, and runs through the fall, ending in November or December. However, the specific timing of the mowing season can vary depending on a number of factors, including local climate conditions, precipitation levels, and the type of grass being grown. Additionally, some homeowners and landscapers may choose to mow their lawns throughout the year to maintain a neat and tidy appearance.

Grass in Florida can grow year-round due to the mild climate, but the frequency of mowing required may vary depending on the season and the type of grass you have. During the warm and rainy summer months, grass can grow quite quickly, and you may need to mow more frequently to keep it at a manageable length. In contrast, during the cooler and drier winter months, grass growth may slow down, and you may not need to mow as often.


The specific frequency of mowing will depend on the type of grass you have and your personal preferences. For example, St. Augustine grass typically requires mowing every 7-10 days during the growing season, while Bahia grass may only need to be mowed every 2-3 weeks. If you prefer a more manicured look or have a lawn that sees heavy use, you may want to mow more frequently than recommended.


In short, while grass in Florida can grow year-round, the frequency of mowing needed will depend on a variety of factors, and you may not need to mow as often during the cooler months.
