What time am I allowed to mow my lawn?

12 Oct 16

We all know that sometimes we feel like getting those weekend jobs done early and out of the way so we can relax and enjoy the afternoon. However, it is important to know your states noise restriction times. No one wants an abusive neighbour or a hefty fine from the council.

Noise is defined as "a sound, especially one that is loud or unpleasant or that causes disturbance."

Lawn mowers can emit noise levels of 87-94 decibels of noise which if exposed to for eight hours of more you are likely to have ear drum damage. The lawn mower is more bearable then other noisy devices but it should still be used in the applicable times to keep your neighbours happy.

 

Noise restriction rules for lawn mowers and other power tool devices vary from state to state.

*Here is a guide of when power tool noise is permitted in every state.
