After the installation process, it’s important to properly care for the newly sodded lawn.
Here’s what we recommend for sod lawn care and maintenance:
1. Maintain Moisture
After installation, sod can become dry without watering 2-3 times every week. This allows the roots to grow deeper into the soil, which is a must before the first mow. If not done, a mower can easily cause unwanted uprooting.
2. Regular Fertilization
Frequent fertilization is recommended for the first 6 weeks to strengthen the health of the new lawn. This will maintain the sod’s color, and promote strong roots.
