You may have wondered when the best time of day is to mow your lawn. Here are a few suggestions for when you should mow your lawn and when you should not mow your lawn.
The first suggestion is to not mow your lawn during a drought or periods of dry spells. Mowing your lawn during these times can cause turf stress. You should also not mow your lawn during the heat of the day. Not only will mowing your lawn during the heat of the day cause you stress, but it will also stress out your lawn.
Another suggestion is to not mow your lawn when it is wet. So you should not mow your lawn right after it rains or in the morning when there is still dew on the ground. Rain or dew will weigh down the grass and will make a straight cut difficult. Also, wet clippings will not spread but clump together. It can also be dangerous to mow wet grass because of the risk of slipping on the wet grass. So wait until the grass dries, normally late afternoon or early evening is the best time to mow your lawn.
These are just a few suggestions for when you should mow your lawn and help you to keep your lawn looking its best.
