    Unless you have a Walker, it may suck up the granules.:D

    Well if someone else put it down, I would cut it immediately. Double blades, vac system. I would have to cut it twice as well. Maybe even a third time just for good measure. Then when the neighbors yard is greener than theirs, I would talk them into letting me do it next time....:D



    Just kiddin.... Personally I would wait till it was watered in. By hose or rain ;)

    If it's been 2 days,... just CUT it. In case it was liquid, make sure you discharge so you not handling that ****. Whatever it was, has had MORE than enough time to translocate through the plant. If there was iron or something in it, like I say, cut it and leave it lay.
