How long after TruGreen can I mow?

You should wait to mow for 24 to 48 hours post treatment. This is because it takes at least 24 hours for broadleaf weed control to translocate throughout the vascular system of the plant. If you cut the grass too soon, you’re not letting the herbicide get into the plant.

How long should you wait to mow after lawn treatment?

We recommend waiting 24-48 hours after a treatment to mow, if possible. We also recommend leaving the clippings on the lawn when you do mow.

How long does it take for TruGreen to dry?

After a service, TruGreen advises customers to allow the application to dry before their families and pets can resume enjoying their lawns. Depending on weather conditions, the drying process usually takes from 1-2 hours.

How long after TruGreen treatment can I water?

We recommend watering your lawn with 1 inch of water within 48 hours after an application, except in the event of a modest rainfall. This will help deliver the nutrients to the roots where your grass can actively utilize it, which will help achieve optimal results from our lawn application.
