How early is too early to mow your lawn? I'm an early riser. Not necessarily by choice, but being a father of two, I just have to get up when they're up. That's typically around 6-6:30am on a daily basis. But last weekend I was woken up by 5:45am by the sound of a lawn mower. How could this be?

I blogged a couple years ago about mowing the lawn late at night and now having kids, I realize that mowing after dark is a big no no essentially for the inverse reasons of mowing the lawn too early. But I don't know if there is a defined rule. So I wanted to ask - how early is too early to mow your lawn?

I feel like 5:45am is way too early. Even 7am would be early to me. 8am I think is when it clears, but what do the people think? Let me know in the comments and I'll put it in the poll for next week!
