Sod Installation Guide
Install your SOD immediately and begin watering!
Do not wait until the next day.
Sod is perishable and must be installed immediately upon receipt and followed by deep watering. Heat can build up within a roll and cause damage to the turf. After rolling, begin irrigation deeply, six inches down into the soil until its soggy to walk on.
First Two Weeks after Installation
Proper watering is essential to rooting of your new sod. It's nearly impossible to over water new sod! As a general rule, keep sod and soil moist all throughout the day. As much as 2 to 6 sprinklings during the day are required until sod begins to root. Adjust for location, sprinklers, and temperature. Stay off new sod until after the first mowing. Try cutting back frequency of irrigations just before the first mow to firm up the soil. First mow is approximatley 14 days after installation except in winter. Mowing high is least stressful to the new sod. Never mow off more than one-third of the grass blade.
Three to Four Weeks after Installation
Sod not rooting? - Most sod varieties will begin to root within 10-14 days. Check watering schedule and adjust to deeper, less frequent soaking. excessive shade will slow down rooting.
Blueish-grey spots on lawn or footprints show after being walked on - Drought stressed spots in the lawn. Try increasing minutes per watering and check or adjust sprinkler coverage.
Edges turning brown and/or gaps between rolls. Sod is shrinking or has pulled up at the corners. Due to lack of water! Increase minutes per watering and frequency to minimize gaps. Also, hand watering sod will help shrink gaps. Press down edges with foot after watering.
Re-adjust your watering clock or timer. Reduce frequency of watering gradually after each mowing, while increasing minutes per watering. Deeper, less frequent soakings will help roots grow down deeper and establish more quickly into the soil. Pull or tug on turf to check rooting. Fertilize your new sod lawn at one month to continue encouraging rooting and establishment.
