How long do I need to stay off the lawn?

Staying off a treated lawn and the specific duration of restriction can vary depending on the type of treatment, the products used, and the instructions provided by your lawn care professional. It’s essential to follow the detailed instructions emailed to you after each treatment. These instructions will provide specific guidance on when it is safe to resume activities on the treated lawn. Here are some general considerations:

It’s crucial to read and follow the instructions provided to ensure the safety of yourself, your family, and your pets. These instructions are tailored to the specific treatment applied to your lawn, and adherence to them helps ensure the effectiveness of the treatment while minimizing potential risks.

If you have any questions or concerns about when it is safe to use your lawn after a treatment, don’t hesitate to contact our team for clarification. They can provide guidance and address any specific concerns related to the treatment.

  • Fertilization: It’s a good practice to wait until the lawn is dry to avoid tracking fertilizer onto sidewalks or into your home.
  • Pest Control: The waiting period after a pest control treatment can vary based on the products used and the specific pests being targeted. It may be necessary to stay off the lawn for a few hours to allow the treatment to dry and settle.
  • Weed Control: The instructions for weed control treatments will specify when it is safe to resume normal lawn activities. This can vary from a few hours to a day, depending on the product and conditions.
  • Herbicides: If herbicides are applied to control weeds in planting beds or other areas, it’s typically advisable to avoid contact with treated vegetation until the product has dried.
  • Insecticides: For insect control, it’s generally safe to stay off the lawn for a few hours to allow the product to dry. However, the specific waiting period will be outlined in the instructions.

Can I cut my lawn after a treatment?

The timing for mowing your lawn after treatment can vary depending on the type of treatment and the specific products used. However, waiting for at least 24 hours after a lawn treatment is a general guideline that is often recommended. Here’s why waiting is typically advised:

However, it’s important to note that the specific waiting period can vary based on the product used and the instructions provided by your lawn care professional. Some treatments may require a longer waiting period, while others may be safe to mow within 24 hours.

  • Treatment Absorption: Many lawn treatments, such as fertilization, weed control, or pest control applications, involve the application of products to the grass or soil. Allowing 24 hours gives these products time to be absorbed and take effect.
  • Avoiding Disruption: Mowing immediately after treatment can disrupt the distribution of applied products and reduce their effectiveness. It may also spread treated grass clippings, potentially affecting untreated areas.
  • Safety: Some lawn treatments involve the use of chemicals, and mowing too soon after treatment can increase the risk of exposure to these substances. Waiting helps ensure safety for you and anyone else using the lawn.
  • Treatment Effectiveness: Waiting for the recommended time allows the treatment to work optimally. For example, if you’ve had weed control applied, giving it time to affect weeds can improve the overall results.
  • Minimizing Stress: Mowing immediately after treatment can put stress on your grass. The turf is already dealing with the effects of the treatment. Waiting provides a period of recovery for the grass.

    • Fertilization: Rain can be beneficial after a fertilization treatment. Because it helps to water the fertilizer, allowing it to dissolve and penetrate the soil. Rain will promote its effectiveness.
  • Timing of Rainfall:
    • If rain falls more than 20 minutes after treatment, the products would likely have been absorbed or dried. The treatment should not be significantly affected.
