I for one wished I had a reel mower when I was mowing my renovation, I think I am lucking out using my tractor.

Re: Scott’s Fall 2020 Renovation

I would agree to wait until after day 14 closer to 21...but if there was obvious seed run off, I would drop some seed but other than that definitely give it another week and then re-evaluate.
