WATERING NEW SOD
Watering your new sod after it has been installed is very critical. Regular watering is necessary until the root system has become deeply established, usually one full summer, but up to 2 full summers if your soil is heavy clay, compacted, or very sandy.
For example, sod that is laid in August should be given frequent shallow watering during the hot weeks of August and September, then watering can be reduced as the weather cools. However, because the root system is not completely established, a careful watering program should begin again the next spring, and should continue through the hot months of summer. Failure to do so could result in a burned lawn when the temperatures reach the 80 degree range.
Lawn care, new sod care
For the initial watering of new sod, 1/2" of water at each watering will soak the sod adequately. In later weeks, as the watering frequency decreases, 1" should be applied at each watering. To determine how long to run your sprinkler, use a small can with low sides placed in the sod to measure the water (a tuna can works well).
Allow sod to grow 4" - 5" before mowing. Mow no shorter than a 3" height.

September fertilizing is recommended for new sod, however, do not fertilize for the first 60 days after sod is laid. For sod laid down in fall, fertilize in May.
