How do I properly mow sod?
It is suggested that you wait at least 7 days, or until the grass has started to root before you mow your new lawn. After one week, try lifting one of the pieces of sod. If it comes up easily, it is too early to cut.
After your sod has rooted, the ideal cutting height is between 2-3 inches.
It is recommended that you mow often, generally removing no more than 1/3 of the grass height. Keep your mower blade sharp for a nice, clean cut.
