People here mow at 6am. Very rude IMO.
7am would be a lot nicer!

I probably wouldn't mow before 8 on a weekday or 9 on a weekend, even though I'm always up before then.

Oh no, don't do that. I put my kids to bed at about 7:30pm and just about cry whenever a neighbor starts their mower at that time!

Yep, 8am weekday or 9am weekend is okay. Maybe if it's going to be seriously hot I'd forgive between 8am and 9am on a weekend.

Check your council website they will have times allowed

EPA also has advice in their noise pollution section

Depends on my neighbours... if they all have young children, I'd guess they are up by 7 anyway, so starting at 7:30 might be ok. If I had neighbours who were professionals or single etc, then I wouldn't before 9.

Ha! Indeed......I'm in Sydney and it can get steamy by 8:30 some mornings....I know some local councils have restrictions on what hours building works, leaf blowers etc can start.....not sure if mowers are included .....I reckon 7:30 on a weekday you should be pretty safe....who isn't up by then except maybe teenagers or hungover uni students?! They would sleep through anything....

9 am on sat or sun I think is reasonable...although it could be getting hot for you by then....

#18 YellowKittyGlenn

Sorry cant link but EPA SA says mowing is to be done done between 9am-8pm on weekends. Outside of these times is considered noise pollution/unreasonable noise

#19 -*meh*-

Posted 28 December 2012 - 07:51 PM

its usually quite warm by 9am... it is supposed to hit near 30 tomorrow with temps near 40 by new years so i really need to get it done tomorrow!

I might aim to get out there around 8am... we don't have a huge yard so fingers crossed it won't take to long...

i don't really speak to my neighbours, one side often wakes me with the leaving of their vehicles/gates early so i assume they are early rises...

other neighbours i have spoken to a couple times and i assume they wouldn't care... people over the back fence i have no idea who they are...

My neighbor likes to start banging around on his home reno's at 7:30am. Think throwing tiles from the roof, to the trailer, outside our bedroom window.

It makes me cranky.

Not before 8am is my opinion.

#21 libbylu

7.30am weekdays, 9am Saturdays, 10am Sundays.

Check with your council, i seem to remember 7 am weekdays?

#23 jessie123

Posted 28 December 2012 - 10:13 PM

It is only 28 tomorrow I would do it 9 am it won't be hot.

Tam all states either councils, EPA in your state will have policy/regulations in regards to noise pollution which include lawn mowing, its usually under the category of non fixed machinery.
.
Doing a quick google search shows all states have a policy and most have policy of not before 9am on weekends & others are 8am on weekends. Weekdays there is a general consensus of 7am

I always think neighbours are inconsiderate if they are out mowing and making a lot of noise before 10 am all through the week. Maybe try mowing the lawn in the cooler time of the evening around 6pm?
