There are actually a number of reasons why grass turns yellow after cutting, most of which can be easily remedied by simply knowing what the cause is. Here are the most common reasons why cutting the grass turns it yellow:
The blades of the lawn mower aren’t sharp enough – When mower blades aren’t sharp enough, the grass is actually torn not cut and this damage can lead to the grass turning yellow.
Your lawn is lacking nutrients – A good fertiliser will be able to help you add back any missing nutrients to the grass and hopefully return it to a lovely green colour
The grass is cut too short – When grass is cut very short the tips of the blades lack moisture and combined with sunlight this can turn them yellow
Petrol may have leaked from the lawn mower – Harsh chemicals like petrol will almost certainly turn grass yellow as it breaks down the Chlorophyll in the grass
Cutting grass in hot weather – During long periods of hot, dry weather it’s common for grass to turn yellow due to lack of moisture
Your lawn my have a fungal disease – There are some fungal diseases that will cause your grass to turn yellow and will need treating to help the lawn recover

If you’ve recently grown a new lawn of grass, it’s important to know when it’s the right time to start cutting the grass for the first time. You might be eager to mow your fresh lawn, but you don’t want to damage the grass or cause issues that would stop you from having healthy, luscious green grass in the future.
How long to leave grass seed before cutting
As a general rule, a newly seeded lawn is usually ready for the first garden grass cutting when the grass blades are about 6-7 cm long.
If you cut the grass before that when it’s shorter, you run the risk of the roots not being developed enough to support the grass recovering properly after being cut. Leave it too long and cutting long grass can be a bit of a pain to deal with.
Top tips for cutting a new lawn for the first time
Here are our top tips for mowing your fresh lawn for the first time:
Check that the grass plants have all rooted in well before starting
Make sure your lawn mower blades are really sharp
Set the mower blades high, so you don’t cut the grass too short – ideally try to remove a maximum of a quarter of the length of the grass
Choose a day when the weather is reasonably warm and the grass is dry
Never mow your lawn if any frost is forecast
If the weather has been very dry, make sure you water the lawn immediately after cutting the grass

The short answer to that question is, no. You should avoid cutting grass in the rain or after rainfall. Instead, wait for the grass to dry out before you whip out the lawn mower and try to cut the grass. Here are some of the reasons why cutting wet grass is a bad idea:
Wet lawns are slippery and cutting wet grass can be dangerous with a risk of your slipping and falling whilst using a heavy lawn mower with sharp blades
You’ll often get uneven results if you mow wet grass because some blades will be weighed down by the weight of the moisture and be missed by the mower blades
Cutting damp grass can encourage mould and other lawn diseases to take hold, due to the damp conditions
Some lawn mowers struggle to cut grass when it’s wet, which can cause the mower to overheat
The process of cutting grass on a wet lawn can lead to compacted soil and create ruts in the surface of your lawn
