Question: Is there a right and a wrong time for lawn mowing?
Answer: Yes, lawn mowing should not be done when the grass is wet (under which conditions disease can be introduced, plus you incur the risk of slipping and getting injured). Also, lawn mowing in the evening puts less stress on the lawn than lawn mowing when the sun is pounding down in the afternoon.
Question: Is there a right and a wrong method of lawn mowing?
Answer: Yes. Alternate the direction in which you mow each session. You will thereby prevent your grass from “getting into a rut” (literally). If your lawn mower wheels pass over the same area in the same direction each time you mow, they’ll form ruts over time. Switching lawn mowing patterns also avoids having the lawn mower blade beating at the grass in the same direction every time.
Question: How and why should I sharpen my lawn mower’s blade?
Answer: Every month or two, you should sharpen the lawn mower’s blade. The reason for sharpening lawn mower blades is that dull blades have a tendency to rip grass blades instead of cutting cleanly, leaving grass susceptible to diseases. Here’s how to sharpen a lawn mower blade: This Old House
