I love how we complain about droughts and then complain about too much rain. We, as people, are just never happy!

You aren't the only one. We have properties with frog ponds in the middle of the lawn.

At the beginning of July last year the entire country had crispy-brown lawns.

I'll take the rain.

Push mowers leaving ruts, customer complaints, wet clothes, just sucks....
Don't get me wrong I do not want drought but this is getting over my control level!!

We're having the opposite problem! I'm almost 4" behind in these last few months and 20" behind since the start of last year.

We cut grass in the rain, we have to. Rains a lot here in Ireland (that said it hasn't raining much this summer) but in general the grass is wet due to dew and so on. Once the grass is tightly cut wet cutting is okay. On larger lawns we run Ransoms Parkway's cylinder mowers and rest flail mulchers and collectors 'Amazone Profihoppers'

I'd love to be seeing some rain here! We haven't had near enough in the last month or so and it seems like any rain has barely missed us. But thankfully we had a couple hours of rain last night and yesterday morning. Been praying asking for rain so hopefully we get more!
