Normally not. A light rain can actually enhance the mode of action of the herbicide because plants will open their pores during a rain and take in the products better. Rain will not effect the fertilizer. In the event of a hard down pour within a couple of hours of the applications, the herbicide’s effectiveness may be compromised, and we would need to reapply the weed control. In any event, you should wait 10 days to two weeks (longer if weather is cooler), and then check to see if weeds are dying. There is no problem with applying an application to a wet lawn.
We recommend that you leave (mulch) the clippings for at least the first two mowings after our applications. After this interval, there is no problem with using grass clippings as mulch.
The last mowing before winter should be relatively short. This will speed soil warm-up in the spring and reduce matting. About 2” would be right.
Anytime, except during extremely hot periods when the lawn can be stressed.
