Switch

A long, extended "whippy" rod, a switch is brushed over the grass in a circular sweeping motion to remove the dew each morning and to help dry out the lawn—running a bamboo cane horizontally over the surface of the lawn can have the same effect. This action is performed to deter fungus and diseases, which thrive in moist conditions, and it is also beneficial since having a dry lawn makes mowing easier. An alternative popular tool to reduce damp fungal problems is a dew brush, which is also used to sweep the morning moisture off the lawn. Drying the lawn is particularly important in shady areas where the sun won't dry the lawn naturally.
