    How quickly can you cut your lawn after the application of trimec? Should you wait a few days or is one or two sufficient. I read the label and didnt see that part. I could have also missed it. To be certain I thought i would ask some of you guys that do this all the time for some advice.

    Usually under use precautions, 1 to 2 days.

    I agree with sprayboy. You might be able to mow as soon as the product dries, but make sure you mow high enough as to not mow off the leaves of the weeds (they absorb the product).

    One of my customers wanted to mow right away. He did. No problem resulted.

    Thanks guys, I am going to wait a few days and cut. Its not a big deal. Its my own personal yard so having the grass grow and not cut for the weekend doenst bother me at all. I did the application this evening, we have had a threat of rain each day for the past few and again for the next day or so. Tonight was the only forcast of just clouds no rain.
