If you are new to mowing a lawn, you may be wondering what time during the day is best to mow your lawn. Here are a few tips on when you should and should not mow your lawn.
The first tip is that you should not mow your lawn when it is wet. So do not mow right after it rains, or in the morning when there is still dew on the grass. The rain or dew will weigh down your grass, making a straight cut difficult. Wet grass can also be slippery, making it dangerous for you. Wet grass clippings will also clump together instead of spreading out. So wait until your lawn is dry.
Another tip is not to mow your lawn if you are experiencing long dry spells or drought. When you mow a dry lawn, it can cause turf stress. For the same reason, you should avoid mowing your lawn in the heat of the day. Not only can this time of day cause you to stress, but it can also stress your lawn.
The best time of day to mow your lawn is normally late afternoon or early evening when your lawn is dry. These few tips will help you to keep your lawn green and looking its best.
