Additional Care Tips: Once your grass is 1/3 taller than the recommended mowing height you may begin mowing it. Avoid removing more than 1/3 of the total grass blade length at any single mowing to keep your grass thick and healthy. Increase your mowing height in summer months to reduce grass stress. Important: Applying weed control products to grass prior to seeding can affect the seeds' ability to grow. Be sure to read and follow all manufacturer's recommendations and application instructions prior to applying any weed control products and prior to seeding. Additionally, do not apply any weed control products to newly seeded areas until grass is established and has been mowed at least 3 or 4 times.
