Caring for Your New Sod

  • Water 2x daily for the first 2 weeks.
  • Water 1x-2x daily for 2 more weeks depending on rain and temperature.
  • Water 1x daily for the next month.
  • Do not walk on new sod for the first 2 weeks.
  • You may mow at the 3 week point.
  • Mow at the highest setting.
  • Bag the grass clippings for the first couple of mowings.
  • To tell if sod is rooting try to lift up a corner. If it resists, then roots are growing.
  • You may fertilize 60 days after sod installation.
  • Grass should receive 1” of water per week after it is fully established.
  • Grass should be cut at 3-4” rather than 2-3.” This promotes a healthy lawn.
