Firstly, you should avoid mowing in the wet at all costs. But if you have no other choice. Then here are a few ways to make it more agreeable.
1. Raise the Deck
Mowing wet grass is difficult at the best of times, but only becomes more frustrating if the mower is set too low.
When conditions are wet, or even damp, make cutting easier by moving the mowing deck up to the highest or the second-highest setting and leave it there.
2. Sharpen the Blades
The sharper the blade, the crisper the cut.
This is particularly important if you are cutting in damp conditions, as wet blades of grass are more likely to shred.
Super sharp blades produce a crisp cut for healthier, greener, grass.
3. Clean the Body
Mowing in the wet is messy.
We grass takes on a sticky quality, which leads to it clinging to the underside of mowers – forming a soggy layer that can contribute to rust and degradation.
Make sure you scrape this grass off the underside of the mower, and you can also clean the mower’s tires with a wire brush and wipe down the top of the mower to remove wet clippings.
4. Mow More Often
If you normally mow once a week, then try reducing that to every five days, or even less. This will stop the grass from getting unmanageable. Long and wet grass is very difficult to cut.
5.Use the Side-discharge
If conditions are very wet, some mowers will allow you to use the side discharge. This can save time dealing with grass clippings.
Instead of bagging or mulching the clippings, just set the mower to the highest setting, put the side discharge in place, and mow. This leaves rows of clippings on the lawn, but you could try cross-mowing (mowing at 90 degrees alternately) to help scoop them up, or just let them dry for a couple of days before mowing again.
