    I just over seeded my yard with some fescue and it is starting to come up. But the rest of the yard is getting pretty tall and needs mowed really bad. My question is if I set my mower up high and mow will it hurt the new grass that is coming up?

    Yes. I would use a trimmer to hit the high spots, let it go a few weeks, put mower on highest setting and mow, then every couple days reduce height until your at 2.5 - 3.5"
