On Mowing that New Lawn of Yoursposted on 15 May 2014 | posted in Tips
Of course, the purpose of ridding your garden of moles is so you can enjoy a perfect lawn! But once you've gotten rid of these pests, your work is not over. If you've installed a new lawn down, here are some tips for you on how to maintain it.
New lawns require time to become established and set down a root system before they are mowed. If you've seeded your lawn, it may be as long as two months before it can be mowed. Sod, on the other hand, may need to be mowed within three weeks of being laid. Plugs, sprigs and stolons can take as much as six weeks to become firmly established. If you've seeded your lawn, all seeds must have germinated before you mow. Plugs, sprigs, stolons and sod must have roots firmly set before they're mowed to prevent damage.
