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:
• As infrequently as possible (once or twice a week in the cooler months, three or more
times per week in warmer months), to maintain a healthy green condition.
• For as long as possible to get deep soil penetration (10 to 15 minutes). It may be
necessary to cycle irrigate if runoff occurs after a short time. Water until runoff occurs,
and then stop and wait for the water to penetrate (about an hour) then repeat.
• Water as early as possible between 7AM and 10 AM.
• DO NOT water areas in the shade as frequently as areas of lawn that receive full sun.
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
(It is acceptable to water grass in the full sun; it will not burn the blades)
