How long should I wait to mow a lawn after seeding or sodding?

Seed: When mowing seeded areas, mow as soon as grass or weeds reach cutting height and keep whatever is growing mowed until turf is dominant.

Look up the cutting height of your lawn in our Lawn Maintenance Guides.

Sod: Begin mowing as soon as your sod has rooted to the extent that mowing does not displace it. It is important that mowing not be delayed too long. Cut high the first time, but gradually and deliberately lower the cut-height.

For seeded and sodded lawns, never mow more than 1/3 of the leaf when mowing.
