I added some grass seed on existing lawn, and there are a few dead spots.

Can the lawn be walked over heavily after first mowing? It is not new lawn, how long should I wait for it being walked over?

The reason I am asking is I need to hire a basement renovation contracting company, and I expect they need to walk from front yard to basement entrance frequently, and need to moving stuff to basement. And the project will last at least one month.

Thanks.

After first mowing would be better than sooner, BUT, it's probably still too soon. The great thing about grass though, is you can always reseed it yet again if needed after they are finished.

So, if you have no other options for where they walk, get the needed work done and worry about the yard later.

How about blower? When can I use blower? A lot of dirt (little stones, little fragment of a brick, etc) left on the lawn.

What's the hurry? You need to leave the lawn alone as long as possible, while the new grass is growing.
