    A customer of mine just had her lawn aerated and over seeded , I was wondering should I use my 36 or use my 21 just because the grass is still very new ? It has been about 10 days after aeration and overseeding

    It would be better to use your push mower if you can but if your 36 doesn't usually have a problem with tearing up your yard you should be fine. It also matters if there is a lot of grass in the area or if it is pretty bare with new grass coming through. I usually mow with new grass coming up with my 61 turf tiger because i have to get the leaves up.

    I wouldn't touch that Yard for another ten days. and then i would be careful of it. don't want to destroy all the new grass that coming up by cutting it to quick

    @Coastal Lawn Maintenance - I have waited the full 10 days like the overseeding company said so maybe I should be okay ?

    Give it a few more days, TTTF takes a little time to get started but when it does it will grow fast if kept wet.
