Question: How long should I wait to mow my new sod?
Top Answer (40% of 62 votes): Two weeks.

Answer: Two weeks
Explanation: Mow if Grass exceeds 3.5" Your new lawn should be mowed at the end of week 2 or if you lawn exceeds 3 1/2" tall. Back off on the watering so the turf is dry to the touch and firm enough to walk on without sinking in. If your new lawn reaches over 3 1/2", mow off a third of the length even if it has not been two weeks.
