A couple accounts got their lawns fertilized today and it set me back to wondering how long after they spread the fertilizer can you mow or doesnt it matter? Might be a dumb question but, I had to ask.

I asked my fert guy (i sub it out) and he said dont worry, the blades wont suck the pellets up at all due to the round shape.
Dont feel stupid....I asked him the same question.

Oh yeah...he has 16 yrs exp....so I believe him. And he is great at his craft....my lawns are the best on the block thaks to him.

Fertilizer "Prills" can be picked up and thrown by the mower....

Now Pesticides is another story, you can really mess up a lawn by moving these around.

As far as mowing about these, if I didn't apply it, and we are there on the scheduled day, that's the other companies problem.

I wouldn't worry much about pellets, though depending on how low you cut it or if bagging can move them, but if they sprayed thats another story depending on what they sprayed. Like Dr. Mow said on time day or two for spray.
