We have all heard it … There is a break in the rain and the grunt of lawn mowers starting up sounds out across the neighbourhood like they are taking part in an underground street race.
STOP. RESIST THE URGE.
We believe that you are doing more harm than good.
Mowing wet grass:
Give the lawn time to recover from the wet weather. Ideally, wait until the grass is dry enough to walk on and not have wet shoes.
But, don’t be fooled by the beautiful, lush and extra-long grass if it has a chance to get away for an extended period during the wet season. There is a tendency to keep mowing it at the higher level on your mower, which causes thatching and a spongy feeling underfoot.
If it has been a while, it may need three haircuts over the next week or so to bring it back down to the proper height.
In North Queensland, our mowing recommendation regardless of the turf variety, would be every 5 to 7 days in Summer if not too wet and once every three weeks in Winter.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
