Two weeks ago I planted grass seed on my lawn. I had some grass (40%) but the rest is seed. I was wondering when is it save to walk and cut the grass?

The rest of the seeds should germinate soon. I'd stay off the lawn until it's time to mow - usually when the grass grows to about 3 inches. At that time you can mow the lawn, taking off only one inch of the blades. Good luck with your new lawn!
