Timing is key: Mow before 10:00am.
Safety First: Avoid mowing during excessively dry conditions to prevent potential fires.
Remember lawn mowers are designed to mow lawns, not weeds or dry grass. Metal blades striking rocks can create sparks that might lead to fires. Always have a water source close by in case of a fire.
