How Long After Multiple Storms ’til I Mow My Lawn?
In the UK for about the last month we have been battered by gale force storms. I'm hoping to cut my grass over the next week, however it's long after being left for winter and then the rain that it\'s still wet, and the soil underneath is quite "clay like" (aka when you stand on it the grass smushes down and the mud is tacky). How long would you leave it?

I would leave it until your mower can handle the conditions. Unfortunately, there is no real way to give a timeline. It will dry as fast as the humidity, and other conditions, allow.
You may contact the manufacturer of your mower to see what they recommend. Some mowers can handle wet grass, and some will bog down and only make a mess.
