Refrain from mowing, if possible, until the grass is at least 3” high. New grass should be mowed with the mower at a high setting. Ideally only 1/3 of the total height of the grass should be removed during a mowing. Once the grass is well established and before mowing, the netting (if used) should be gently removed. Do not fertilize or use weed control products until the restored area has been mowed three times. The grass needs to establish strong enough roots to withstand any type of chemical application.
Please remember that these are basic guidelines. Watering frequency needs to adapt to weather and turf conditions. If the weather is very hot and dry, or if the new grass shows signs of stress, it may be necessary to increase watering. If the weather is rainy, then watering frequency needs to be reduced.
