The Q&A Archives: should i mow my lawn

Question: i tilled my front yard and reseeded the whole yard only half came up after two weeks we seede the part that did not come up 5 days ago the grass is 4-5 inches tall can i go ahead and cut grass even though other seed has not come up

Answer: I'd go ahead and mow it before it gets any taller. Try to keep it mowed often enough that you won't have to take more than one third of the blade off each time you mow. The seeds should be down near the soil surface by now so you probably won't suck too many of them up when you mow. Best wishes with your lawn!
