Hi Linda,
Don't try to cut your lawn too soon, put a light roller over it. If you do not have a roller on your mower, set it at it's highest setting.

Hi Linda........if I were you I would leave the turf till mid April before you start mowing, simply for the fact that it may "ruck" up so soon after laying. We did a similar thing last year and all was well until a piece of turf which hadn't rooted as well as the rest caught in the mower.
