Mowing with wet-grass conditions—such as morning dew—can spread turfgrass disease pathogens, which already exist on your lawn…yuk! Here’s the best time to mow your lawn…

 For the cleanest cut, it’s best to mow when it’s cool and the lawn is at its driest—typically, in the late afternoon. Mow often—a few inches at a time and no more than one-third the total blade length—rather than waiting till the grass is as high as an elephant’s eye. It’s less stressful for the grass.

Bonus: The short, leftover clippings do not have to be bagged, and they will eventually decompose and return valuable nutrients to the soil.
