Is It Okay to Mow Your Lawn in November in Michigan?

Many believe that once the cooler weather hits, you can put your mower away for the season as you no longer need to cut your lawn anymore. This is simply not true, your grass doesn't stop growing during this time, it just slows down.

As long as your grass continues to grow, it's fine to mow your lawn throughout November.
