Well it depends on if I let the grass grow 4 feet tall before I mow.

It gets so tall and weedy it will stall the push mower and the riding mower. I gotta buy a brush hog.

You gotta beat it down with the weed whipper first and then mow.

Did I get the right answer?

I mow to keep the county off my ass and weed whack later to keep my wife happy. Sometimes I weed whack with Roundup.
"Dunno honey, I think there is some kind of chemical in that fence that kills the grass"

That is my story and I am sticking to it.

Weed wack then mow. That way the mower can clean up the trimmings.

Any fool knows you mow first then touch up what you miss with the trimmer.

Always trim and edge first then mow. My guys trim the areas the mowers wont reach.

I trim first, and then mow. If you trim after, it falls down on the neatly mowed grass and looks sloppy. Mowing is like vacuuming, nice and neat after the mower passes.

Mow first, then weed eat, then edge, then blow.

If you don't have a blower, edge, mow, then trim and then sweep.

If you wanna trim twice, trim, edge, mow, and then trim the small pieces you missed unless you like trimming more than you need to.

If you let your trimming locations get so long they look unappealing when finally cut, mow, trim, edge, and then blow more often.

Edge, mow, weed eat, then blow. Depends on grass type I guess. St Augustine gets runners and edging first allows the mower to grind then up. Then like said before, trim what the mower cant reach. If it's long then you waited too long and next week it will look good. Also u can catch any stragglers at the same time.

You are talking about the lawn right? I asked my wife this question and got a funny answer.

Weed wack then have a beer , Mow while having a beer , then blow , and after .... have another beer . Any other method is 100% incorrect unless you somehow sneak another beer or two in the equation .
