First off, my lawn is about an acre and has been in poor condition since we moved in. On Labor Day, I aerated the heck out of it and over-seeded it using about 150lbs of a turf-type tall fescue blend. I'm happy to say there are new seedlings coming up already.
My question is this: anyone have any recommendations on how long to wait before mowing? With current cooler temps and rain, the current grass/weeds is gonna start growing in a hurry. I'm afraid my 1023e is gonna be a killer on small seedlings. On the flip side, I'm afraid allowing it to get too tall will create an environment in which the seedlings can't compete.... Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated.
