I recently seeded my new lawn and am now preparing for the first cut. Someone had mentioned to me that I should not collect the grass on the first cut and instead leave it sit on the lawn to act as fertilizer. Is this a good idea and will it make any difference?

If there is little or no cut grass, leave it in place. If there is a heavy cut, remove it. Do not cut tightly at first, give it just a light trim.
