Post-Installation Care of Sod!

Water newly sodded lawns two or three times a week. Begin irrigation immediately after laying sod. Sod should be watered so that the sod strip is wet as well as the top one inch of soil below the sod.

The first irrigation requires about one inch of water. After watering, lift up pieces of sod in several locations to determine if it has been adequately irrigated.

Continue watering two to three times a week with light irrigations to prevent wilting and to ensure a moist soil just below the sod layer.

As sod becomes established and roots penetrate and grow into the soil, gradually reduce the frequency of watering but wet the soil deeper.

After sod has been mowed two to three times, water deeply and frequently.

Preferred times to water are mornings and evenings.
