How To Care For New Sod Grass

Installing new sod is a great way to change and improve your turf and look of your landscaping and grass. Once your new lawn is installed, you will want to know how to care for new sod grass.

The most vital and important part of establishing a newly sodded lawn is water and irrigation. Water your new sod grass two to three times per day, for 15-20 minutes. We recommend watering between the times of 6:00 – 8:00am and 12 noon – 2:00pm.

After the first couple of weeks, turn the sprinklers of for a couple of days. This allows your SOIL dry out which is good for the grass and gives the soil a chance to firm up.

Weeks 3 and 4 should consist of watering every other day, then every 2 or 3 days.

In addition to water, your new sod will need proper nutrition in the form of fertilizer and nutritional ammendments.

We recommend a good starter fertilizer and a good balanced maintenance fertilizer. We prefer using organic lawn fertilizers as they don’t burn your grass, help improve soil composition, and don’t have harsh chemicals.

When fertilizing, adjust the amount and frequency based on the climate and season. Generally, once a month is good during spring and summer. Depending on what zone you live in, you may or may not be able to apply fertilizer in the fall and winter months.
