i only mow in the rain if i already started the lawn and its almost done/not raining toohard
I would NEVER cut in the rain for the sole reason that it looks terribly unprofessional.
Not the mention the clumps, abuse to equipment, grass getting stuck under deck, and I just would not want to get wet.
If you cut right, you won't get clumps.
Very bold comment for a 22 year old with a part time lawn service that consists of an old unmarked truck, and no ZTR.
My friend, there will always be times of year (if your cutting on a weekly basis), that you get some clumps. Either because the lawn is growing to fast at some times of the year, or because of the mowing conditions.
Unless your going to double or triple mow some spots, some level of clump-age is acceptable.
Getting back to the subject of this thread: If you mow in the rain you will get 3X the clumps that you would have otherwise. Fact.
Heavy precipitation in the atmosphere pulled by down to earth by gravity.
Or as one of my friends put it, "Man, Gods pissing on us again today, someone must of pissed 'em off".
I agree, these are wise words.
I think damp grass stripes better.
I would agree with that.
Fair enough, but if it's wet or extra tall and I'm blowing clumps, I put a bag on. Then, magically, no clumps. Or I'll double cut and on the second cut, I'll put a bag on.
I urge you to talk to my customers, follow me around for a day, and notice the level of care I give to my clients.
I'm not perfect and my lack of experience prevents me from giving my customers the BEST service, but I try my hardest to provide them with the best I can do.
Better yet, let me on one of your lawn crews for a day or a week and then you can criticize me.
