Only mow after your sod has rooted. Make sure your mower blade is sharp and set at the correct height. We recommend that you mow a height of 4cm’s and you can measure the height by placing it on your sidewalk and measuring the distance between the sidewalk and blade. Never remove more than 3cm of the leaf at any one time. This will also help keep any weeds form intruding as a thick & healthy lawn is your best defense against the weeds.
