How fast does grass grow?

Whilst we have owned our house in France over the last 14 years, we have made new friends and very helpful neighbours. We have been impressed by their sincerity and generosity. We have an informal agreement with a next door neighbour who offered to mow the grass every two weeks or so when we were not at our property. This worked very well for some years and he was recompensed accordingly. However I have just received an email from him stating that the grass throughout April has grown rapidly meaning that his mowing exploits amounted to the equivalent of 40 hours work! Am I being suspicious as we cannot visit until the lockdown has ceased? Or is my suspicion aroused because he also said in the email that he will be moving to a house some 40 miles away. How fast has the grass grown in April?
