How To Avoid Ruts Using A Zero Turn Mower,
How do you drive a zero-turn mower without tearing up grass?
While zero-turn mowers CAN mow wet grass if necessary, it's just not the prime condition for mowing. Not only will you not get the cut that you desire, but you could really do some damage to your yard, and it's just not as safe. If there is a chance that drier conditions are on the way, then wait it out if you can.
How do I keep ruts off my zero-turn mower?
Ruts in your lawn can be caused by heavy equipment damage, using your mower on wet grass, or other missteps. Fixing them is actually very simple: you need to loosen the soil. If the ruts are shallow (no more than a few inches deep), pry the soil and rut up with a spade at a 45-degree angle.
