Water sod lightly after each 200 square feet is installed, to prevent wilting. After all the sod is down and rolled, turn on your sprinklers and let them run until sod is good and soaked. To keep it that way, for the first week, water until runoff begins, once every three hours at 7AM, 11AM and 2PM. During the second week water twice a day at 7AM and 2PM. During the third week water at 7AM. Eventually taper back to once every day.
Adjust according to weather and season – water more frequently during warm or windy weather. After your lawn has become established (approximately 6 to 8 weeks), water according to the following guidelines:
In addition, be sure to watch for blue-gray tint and limp areas of your lawn. This is not Fungus. It is caused by dehydration and is an indication that immediate watering is needed. This usually occurs on tops of mounds and where sprinkler coverage is not adequate.
(It is acceptable to water grass in the full sun; it will not burn the blades)
