We seeded our lawn a week ago and covered it with straw, grass is starting to come in, in some places. My question is when is it sake to remove the straw? Thank you. Maria Peters

You can leave the straw alone for now. When the grass is tall enough to mow, the mower will pick up the loose straw. The rest will decompose on its own in a few months, or you can gently rake it out of the lawn. Best wishes with your new lawn!
