Mowing the lawn during dry conditions causes grass to have recovery problems, according to LawnCare.net, so it's best to avoid mowing during these conditions. During extended dry periods, however, you may have to mow your grass. By using water, you can reduce the damage done to the grass. During long, dry periods, the grass won't grow fast, so you can get away with little mowing. Mowing early in the morning or in the evening helps keep moisture in the grass. It evaporates when mowed on hot days during the warmest parts.
