Green netting on lawn

Hello, I have a new yard on land that was just built, The yard has this green netting which seems to be sod netting? its really thin sticky stuff. Been there for about 5 months. Grass is starting to get high in some spots. But scared to cut grass cause some of the netting is sticking up pretty high.

Is it ok to cut this with the mower?

That green netting is what some people grow sod on. And it is aggravating if it's exposed. I would get rid of as much of it as i could with a box cutter first. You will have to check your mower deck after each use and clean that stuff off from around your blade spindle's. That netting is fine enough to get inside bearing housing's and cause problem's.

I wont be using sod, So no idea why they would put it down.. Also they do have hay under it.

But it would take me a day or two just to remove what is showing or sticking up. Is this normal or something faulty by the land scapeing people?

Are you sure your yard was sodded? Is this maybe seed netting? That is designed to breakdown and be mowed over. It replaces using straw over seed. Its not made of plastic though.

Cut with a crappy old 21 with a sharp blade so when it wraps around the shaft you won't care that it tore up the seal.

If there is straw under the netting it should lift right up if you get it before the grass holds it down... rip and tear,,, rip and tear...
