Watering new sod

Posted by George Bravos on

Proper watering is essential for the success of a new sod lawn. Here are some tips for watering your new sod lawn:

1. Water frequently: New sod should be watered frequently to keep the soil moist and help the roots establish. Water the sod every day or every other day for the first two weeks, depending on the weather and soil conditions.

2. Water deeply: It is important to water deeply to encourage the roots of the sod to grow down into the soil. Aim to water the sod for at least 20-30 minutes at a time, or until the soil is moist to a depth of at least 4 inches.

3. Avoid over-watering: Be careful not to over-water the sod, as this can lead to problems such as disease and root rot. Avoid watering the sod if it is already saturated, and be mindful of the weather conditions when watering.

4. Use a sprinkler: A sprinkler is a good way to water your new sod, as it allows you to cover a large area evenly and control the amount of water being applied.

5. Water early in the day: Watering early in the day allows the sod to dry out before nightfall, which can help to prevent diseases such as fungal infections.

By following these tips, you can effectively water your new sod lawn and help it to thrive.
