Hi,i re-seeded part of my lawn,the grass has come up really great,my
question,can i mow the top few inches off? it's about 5 to 6 inches
tall where i re-seeded.
Thanks for any help.
By the way im in Wash State if that helps.
What's wrong? Newly seeded grass is very moist and tender and if left
on the surface in cool fall temps can fester diseases. The OP said
the grass was now 5-6 inches tall. And yes, also never remove more
than a third of the blade and after the turf is established only use a
mulching mower. I only use a mulching, rechargeable electric mower.
Ya, okay, got the point. My point is that newly planted grass is far
too soft, tender, delicate, etc. and will gunk up and lay on top of
the lawn. It will not mulch down because it has too much moisture in

You can reseed your entire lawn now, if you want it all to look fresh
and green. This is the best time to plant grass seed provided you
live north of Baltimore. South of that would be October as the ideal
time to reseed.
I don't think it, I know it. Newly germinated turf is very tender,
particularly if it is a fescue or rye grass. The first mow is very
important for the establishment of the lawn. If you mow it too short
or long it can rot away in those sections. Do your own experiment if
you want. Plant some seed and tell me if the new grass is as firm and
dry as the established turf.
