Huntsville Lawn Care – FAQ’s

Q.   How to do I know when the lawn is too wet?

A.   When your shoes are wet after walking through the lawn.  You should not be able to see, or hear, water squishing out from under your feet.

Q.   Is it more dangerous to mow a wet lawn versus a dry lawn?

A.   Yes – The potential for danger increases anytime water is added to the equation.  Wet grass is very slick.  Extreme caution is needed.

Q.   What do I do if my grass gets too thick and my mower is not able to cut it?

A.   You will need to call a professional lawn care service and let them get your lawn back under control using commercial lawn care equipment.

Q.   Is it ok cut wet grass with dull blades?

A.    No – It is never a good idea to mow with dull blades.  Dull blades can damage the grass and cause a lot of extra work for the mower. 

Q.   What is the cleanest way to mow a wet lawn?

A.   Unfortunately, the only answer is to try hard to be careful.  Wet grass sticks to everything like glue.  It also leaves a green stain on anything it touches.
