    I'll cut it the next week if it needs it. It's not going to hurt anything.

    I usually like to wait until it has rained/watered heavily or 3 weeks max. (which ever comes first).

    Just did three new lawns,(new homes)going to give it two weeks before cutting.Seed is up and growing nicely after 8 days so we will give it another week.Probably wouldn't go two weeks if it was an established lawn though.

    Does Chemlawn concentrate on hiring morons? One of my customers dropped them last year after they treated her lawn. They didn't compensate for drift while spraying and ended up killing 12 of her prize winning rose bushes.
