CARE OF NEW SOD

WATERING

Give your new lawn at least 1 inch of water within one hour of installation so that the soil

  • Water daily, or more often, keeping turf moist until it is firmly rooted (about 2 weeks).
  • Then less frequent but deeper watering should begin.
  • Weather conditions will dictate the amount and frequency of watering. Be certain that your new lawn has enough moisture to survive hot, dry, or windy periods.
  • Water areas near buildings more often, where reflected heat dries the turf more.

 

MAINTENANCE
  • Mow often, generally removing no more than 1/3 of the grass height at a mowing.
  • Keep your mower blade sharp.
  • Fertilizer and chemical applications will depend on climate, soil, insects, weed and disease conditions. Ask Easy Care Landscaping for more specific instructions.

KEEP OFF GRASS

During the first couple of weeks after installation, keep traffic off your newly planted turf grass as much as possible. Your new turf grass needs time to firmly knit with the soil. If you have properly watered your turf grass it will be moist and soft. Traffic will create indentures and destroy your smooth grade.
