Mowing Wet Grass [Video]

Every week, people write LawnStarter asking for advice on a variety of lawn care related topics. Some folks even send in some questions outside our area of expertise. We’re here to help, so those get answered as well…

How do you stop being sore after working out?

What is the proper way to make a pb&j?

Can you cut wet grass?

Hey everybody, thanks for tuning in. Let’s jump into our mail bag and see what awaits us. Jake, from Austin, TX writes in, Dear Aaron, how do I stop being so sore every night when I get home from the gym? Well, you could quit going. I don’t go to the gym, and I’m never sore. So, there’s your answer. Meaghan in Morgantown West Virginia writes in, Dear Aaron, what’s the proper way to make a PB&J? Oh momma, let me tell you, I have some opinions on this. Some people will take two pieces of bread and put peanut butter on one side, and jelly on another, and smash them together. That is a crime, as far as I’m concerned. I put the peanut butter and the jelly in the same bowl and get a mixing device. Maybe a knife, a spoon, a whisk, or a finger. Mix it up until it’s all homogenous, put it on some bread and enjoy your peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Lastly this week, Martin in El Paso writes in, Dear Aaron, can I cut wet grass? Well Martin, like most things in life you certainly can, however I would not recommend it. When grass is wet it has a tendency to get weighed down by the water so the blades bend and don’t stand all the way upright. Which means you could A. mow directly over them, and when you dry out it’s going to look like you didn’t do anything. Or, B. you cut them at an angle, which doesn’t cleanly cut, but tears instead of a smooth shear. So wait it out, let the lawn dry up, and cut dry grass. You’ll thank me for it later. Thank you guys so much for watching. If you have a question you’d like answered, please email us at or tweet at us at
