There is no set date. It is temperature determined. Grass should be mowed for as long as it is actively growing. Cool season grasses grow best when day time temperatures are above 60 degrees F., and night time temperatures are above 50 degrees. F. When temperatures are consistently below these ranges you can cut your grass for the final time.
