Watering is a must! For best results please maintain watering habits for up to 28 days, this will allow the seed better germination and growth. As for mowing, please hold off for about 10 days. Best to not disturb the process blowing off any seed or tearing them up. Also please dont go over any bare areas to allow fresh new grass to grow. Aeration and seeding will greatly benefit the lawns over all health which will be noticeable gradually with time and as the seasons continue.
