Returfed our garden recently as lawn was in a state. Can anyone advise on when you cut lawn last time of the year please. Thanks in advance for all replies.

Last cut is about now as it gets cold and the grass will not grow in the winter. Dont cut it really short. Best to cut it later in the day when hopefully it has dried after the morning dew. Let your mower dry and brush off the grass cuttings else you will have rusty blades when you come to use it in the spring. (Im no expert but that's what my other half does!!!)

There's no such thing as a grass growing season.

Grass grows when the temperature is above 6 degrees, and grows quicker when the soil is above 6 degrees too, so we'll be mowing the lawn all year round before long.
There's too much opinion and not enough fact.

With the milder winters I've found out lawns grow all year round, if a little slower through winter. So I end up cutting all year round when dry enough, but have a higher blade through winter in case there's harsh frost's immediately after the cut.

I also use a winter feed to reduce moss impact.

I tend to leave mine till the the leaves have shed as it saves all that raking up malarkey

As people have said there is no set time, we are still cutting the greens every third day,if it grows cut it.

This is my way in my garden, work smarter not harder, just make sure you have you collection box on. I have a Toro with mulcher.

Does the feed work on the moss? Last time I used it the patches were awful. Wrecked the lawn too.

Or scarifying best now and in the spring? (Tine rake)

Yeah definitely lift the blade if you cut very short in summer. I never cut really short though in summer though as the lawn scorches and dries out quicker in a real hot spell

Generally if the lawn is wrecked you've applied too much or your lawn was full of moss anyway and needed ripping up and reseeeding.
If your lawn is ok, don't scarily too deep this year. And I'd recommend buying an electric scarifier rather than doing it manually

You're just going through a bit of a rough patch.
