Richard Hentschel continues to discuss how the weather has been impacting our lawn care. Mowing has been a real challenge. Taller grass means a wetter lawn that can easily clump up leaving the lawn covered to mold below. Try raising the mower deck to accommodate the taller, wetter grass. Clippings will need to be removed when too wet and laying on the cut surface. Composting is a good way to recycle the nutrition. Thinning and yellowing is also common right now.
