If you have ever had new sod installed, it is important to know that watering it correctly will help the roots get established and make sure your lawn is healthy.

Water the new sod every day for a week

Did you just install new sod in your yard? If so, watering it will be pretty important to keep it healthy! The best way to do this is by watering the new sod every day for a week.  Watering will help the roots get established and grow deeper into the ground where they can access more water and nutrients.  To make sure that your lawn stays green, try not to skip any days of watering or overwatering! This is an excellent way to ensure that you have a beautiful lawn all summer long.

Keep your lawn watered, but not too much

Lawns need water, but it is important to maintain the moisture level of your lawn. A well-watered lawn will have a deep, green color and lush blades of grass. If you notice that your lawn is turning brown or yellow then you are watering too much or not enough. You should also be sure to give the new sod at least one inch of water each day for four days after planting. The best time for watering is in the early morning hours because this allows plants to dry out before nightfall so they won’t become over-saturated with water which can lead to root rot.

Let it grow in before you start mowing or fertilizing

Sod is a new addition to your yard, and you want it to thrive. You water the grass every day, but it seems like nothing ever grows. There’s no need to worry – this is normal! Let the sod grow for about one week before starting any other lawn care practices. Mowing or fertilizing too early will kill off all of that hard work and patience. Be patient with your new sod, give it some time and eventually you’ll have beautiful green grass!

We have to be careful not to use weed killer too often, or we will kill the new sod too! If you want an efficient way of killing weeds without harming your new grass–try watering it at night with a hose set on high pressure. Give each spot about 5 minutes of water time, then go back over it again in 10 minutes for another 5 minutes of spray time. This should kill off all the weeds that would usually harm your fresh sod patch.

Apply fertilizer twice a year

Apply fertilizer twice a year. The process of sod installation can be really expensive, but if you want to make it last for years and need help with the cost, there are some things you can do! One thing is to apply fertilizer twice a year according to package instructions. If possible, use water that has been treated with an organic nutrient or lawn food product. This will provide your new lawn with what it needs without using chemicals that might affect its natural balance.

Trim edges of your yard with scissors to keep them neat and tidy

Have you just had sod installed in your yard? You may be wondering if it needs to be watered. The answer is yes, for two reasons: the grass needs water so that it can start growing roots and topsoil needs time to settle. But how much water do you need to give it? It depends on what type of sod was laid down, but a good rule of thumb is about 3 inches deep every 3 days or 7-10 inches deep once per week.
