You should not walk on your turf until it has fully rooted. You can check this by lifting the corner of a roll to see if it has rooted to the ground. This usually takes between 2-4 weeks.

You should begin mowing your lawn as soon as it has fully established. You should never cut more than 1/3 of the full length of the grass.
