Using lawn equipment before 8 am is not going to get you "neighbor of the year." That's for sure!

Whether you mow your lawn yourself or have someone do it for you, it's important to be considerate of your neighbors.

The last thing you want to do is make too much noise, especially on a Saturday or Sunday, and annoy everyone on your block.

Laws governing noise control are also enforced by county and municipal agencies so you have to check with your local government to make sure you're following the rules in your town.

The statewide sound level standards are 50 decibels during the night, which is 10:00 pm to 7:00 am, and 65 decibels during the day. You can read more about that here.
