Elite Plus Sod Lawn Care Recommendations
Elite Plus Sod Mowing Recommendations
Your newly installed Elite plus sod should be mowed for the first time 14-21 days after installation. Begin by setting the lawnmower to its highest setting, lowering the settings by 1 every mowing session. Generally, Elite Plus sod should be mowed to a height of 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 inches. Weekly mowing is recommended except in cold weather, when mowing may be less frequent. We recommend never mowing more than one-third of the blade's total height at any given time as this may harm Elite plus fescue along with many other types of grass and plants.
Elite Plus Sod Watering Recommendations
For the first 20 days (or 2 - 3 weeks), water the lawn as needed to keep the topsoil moist to a 3-inch depth. After 20 days (or 2 - 3 weeks), water three or more times a week during warmer weather. In cooler weather, watering may take place once or twice a week, depending on conditions. Lawns in sandy soil require more frequent watering than lawns in clay soil, and inland areas require more water than coastal areas. Pay close attention to areas with slopes and mounds where runoff occurs, as this will affect the lawns' ability to absorb and retain water. In these cases, more frequent, shorter watering may be necessary.
