    i cut in the rain all morning no problem but how do you get the grass off of the sidewalks, flowerbeds, etc... my blower wouldnt move the clippings because they were all wet? do you just leave them and get them next week?

    Not trying to be a smartace or anything, but if your blower will not move wet clippings, you need a better blower.

    Do you mean wet clippings that had dried on the sidewalks?:confused:

    Thats why i try to not mow when its raining.. It takes a lot of time to clean up the wet nasty grass from driveways and sidewalks. You can blow most of it off but there is still some that you have to fight with to make it look decent.

    I think that he means wet clippings that were probably mashed down into the concrete with the lawnmower. This happens a lot. I try to blow as much as I can...you can sweep and get more, but I don't.

    Maybe one of those powerbrooms if you cut in the rain alot may be a good investment.

    Or don't cut in the rain.They also have this thing and it has a wooden handle and these bristles that are attached to the end of it...It's called a broom ...you could try that.
