Sod Care

Watering the Sod

To ensure uniform watering, it is important to focus on the edges and seams. During the first two weeks, make sure to keep the sod soaked with water. It is best to water either at night or early morning to avoid evaporation. If your sod starts to pale in color, it may not be receiving enough water, while mushrooms may indicate too much water.


To keep it healthy and green, make sure to water it thoroughly and frequently for the first month until it is well rooted. After that, you can cut back on watering to once every two weeks for a half hour to maintain a slightly moist soil.


Fertilizing the Sod

Enjoy a hassle-free summer with our fertilized Sod straight from the field. No need to spray anything on your new grass this year. You can start regular applications next season. Towards the end of the season, you can put down fall fertilizer for optimal results.

Keeping Traffic Off the Sod

To ensure that it grows evenly and beautifully, it's best to avoid walking on it as much as possible during the first few weeks. While it's okay to cross it to adjust a hose or perform other necessary tasks, try to minimize any unnecessary traffic. This will help your sod establish strong roots and thrive for years to come."

Mowing the Sod

Proper maintenance is crucial for a healthy lawn. Remember to wait at least 10 days before mowing your sod for the first time, and use a high setting on the mower blade for the first two cuts. Also, make sure not to mow more than 1/3 of the leaf length and alternate mowing patterns for the first few cuts. Lastly, ensure that you have working water faucets, garden hoses, and functional sprinklers available prior to landscaping.
