Your new lawn is going to be beautiful!

Having new sod put in is a great step in keeping your lawn healthy and beautiful. Grass just like many other living organisms need water, food and sunlight to survive.

Here are some tips in keeping your new lawn alive and well.

Have your new sod aerated right after installation. This will allow oxygen and water to penetrate down into the root. This step is essential in keeping your new sod alive and healthy.
Once sod is in place you should immediately water it in. The first week water twice a day. Best times to water is between 10 pm and 2am. If you water during the heat of the day you may need to water more to insure the sod is absorbing it efficiently. Water intervals can be 15 to 20 minutes long.
New sod can take a few months to root into the soil. The soil should never dry out during this very important time
After the second week of installation water the lawn once a day for about 15 to 20 minutes. You should keep this watering schedule at least one full Summer to ensure the roots go deep and stay healthy. If your sod is installed late Summer water regularly until the weather cools then start back up as soon as possible early Spring
After the first month of installation it is best to schedule a fertilize application.
Once the sod has rooted into your soil (approximately one full Summer)you can change your water schedule to twice a week the first week then once a week with 30 to 45 minutes watering intervals.

Taking care of your new sod in the beginning will ensure that you will have a beautiful lawn for a very lawn time.

Problem solving your new sod:

Having new sod put in is a great step in keeping your lawn healthy and beautiful. Grass just like many other living organisms need water, food and sunlight to survive.

Here are some tips in keeping your new lawn alive and well.

If your sod is shrinking that is a sign it is not receiving enough water. Immediately begin to increase the duration of your watering time.
If your sod has bluish-grey spots they are called drought spots. This means it is not getting enough water. Increase your water time and watering frequency. Make sure the water is reaching the sod that has the drought spots.
Sod planted in the shade will root slower then sod in direct sunlight. If the sod is not rooting properly water less frequently, but deeper soak the areas that may be struggling.
Yellow sod is a result in not proper watering and poor nutrition. Increase your watering to insure the sod does not dry out. Do not walk on the yellow sod give it time to rehydrate.

Staying off your new sod will help it grow and root properly. It is safe to schedule your first mow after a few weeks of installation.
