When is the best time of the day to mow a lawn?
The general rule of thumb is that it’s better to mow in the morning than in the afternoon for two reasons:
- In the morning, there is moisture on the grass thanks to the previous evening’s dropped temperatures. This reduces likelihood of your lawn mower’s tires causing brown marks on your lawn. In the afternoon, generally the warmest period of the day, your lawn is the driest. In that state, it’s more susceptible to brown tire marks.
- For the lawn mower operator, it’s safer to mow in the morning hours because of the reduced temperatures. Remember to wear protective gear: Wear closed-toe, slip-resistant shoes, safety glasses, gloves, a hat to reduce sun glare and ear plugs. Cover your skin as much as possible. Remember to take extra care when walking on moist grass; it may be slippery.
