Wet grass tends to form clumps and interferes with the mulching action . The best time to mow your lawn is the early afternoon . At this time the grass has dried and the newly cut area will not be exposed to the direct sun . • For best results , adjust the mower cut - ting height so that the mower cuts off only the top one - third of the grass blades . For extremely heavy mulching , reduce your width of cut on each pass and mow slowly . 18
