I overseeded my yard about 3 weeks ago, hasn't rained since. Yard is starting to look a little ragged, would it hurt the seed to mow over it now..........no bagging of course............or should I wait another month or two for rain!:blob2:

I really want to clean it up so I can start watering it myself since the big well in the sky has dried up.:angry:

Got to see some green here or I'm gonna lose it!

Should have watered it yourself Homer. I seeded this year and watered and watered and the results weren't that great. I would just go ahead and mow, but wouldn't use those high lift blades that everyone uses. :)

It should be fine to mow it, just use a lower lift blade like a gator type and avoid any bare areas if you have them.

Sharpen the blades good and cut at a low rpm. Run the rpm's just high enough to cut. Try to limit the airflow that could blow the seed.
