Young Lawn: Should we be mowing now? and Treatments..
Hi: we moved into our newly constructed home this spring and could only seed the topsoil in april 2014. We hydroseeded. Since then we've had some good growth with the following observations:
1. The lawn in most parts is around 2-4 inches. A little thicker and slightly taller in other places. We are not clear tho if we shd be mowing the lawn yet. Opinion of garden chaps seems divided. Any thoughts?
2. We do have some weeds developing. We have a patch of Nutsedge. Addly, we have what is either crab grass or a thick multi-stemmed weed growing up isolated, but steadily around the lawn. We have done one round of picking by hand (painful) but are now wondering if we shd be spraying something to control the stuff. But we are keen not to hurt the young lawn. Again opinion seems divided. ANy thoughts on what we shd and can do from a treatment perspective?
