It's very important to keep your new lawn moist. You might be required to water 2-3 times per day, depending on the weather. Seed germination could take anywhere from 2-4 weeks, all depending on temperature and your water practices. Fertilize within 4-5 weeks, with a starter fertilizer (19-19-19). No weed control or pre-emergent should be used until the lawn has been mowed at least for 2 months, to insure that the grass seed has all germinated and has had time to harden off.

Mowing Frequency
A general rule of thumb is to not remove more than 1/3 of the total leaf surface grass blade at any one mowing. This may require mowing twice a week in the spring and fall and normally once per week in the summer. Removing more than 1/3 of total leaf surface can severely shock the grass plant by decreasing it's ability to support the underground portions of the plant. On the tenth or twelfth day, stop watering your lawn for at least 2 days before mowing. Mow your lawn at the highest setting. We recommend bagging your lawn for the first few mowings.
