    I try to give it a few weeks, but sometimes it is growing good the week after, with rainfall.

    Are you seeding too? If not, then mow on your regular schedule. Wait 2 weeks if you are seeding.

    Obviously with seeding wait, but sometimes if it is dry, then it will not grow at all and don't need mowing. It is good if they are on yearly plan with a set amount per month.. payup payup Even if they are not on a monthly plan, you should have made enough off the aeration to be able to chill a week or so till it starts to grow. But, if its grown I'm mowin....
