Mowing after weed killer

gregnga(7)April 4, 2009

Yesterday I sprayed weed killer on my lawn. How long do I have to wait to mow? I'm afraid if I mow too soon, I will chop off the weeds before the weed killer gets into the roots of the weeds. I realize now I should have mowed first then applied weed killer but I had a really small window between rain storms

Actually, I think the label tells you not to apply it right after mowing. The idea behind that is that you want to have as much leaf as possible to increase the amount of weed killer that gets absorbed.

What kind of week killer did you use?

It is best to wait a couple days.
