Your new lawn
must be watered immediately after it is installed. If you have a large lawn, we recommend you begin irrigating sodded areas by hand before installation is complete. It is critical to water your new sod immediately after installation.
We suggest that you test a newly installed automatic sprinkler system prior to the installation of your sod. Additionally, we advise you to have sufficient hose available to hand-water your entire lawn should your automatic sprinkler system fail. You may need your neighbors, friends, or kids to help you out if you end up hand watering your new lawn. Properly watering freshly installed sod is critical to ensuring the future health of your lawn.
We advise you to provide .5 to 1.5 inches of water to your new sod every day for 21 days after installation. We can provide you with a rain gauge to assist you in measuring the amount of water you are applying to your lawn during this critical time. The best way to water your new lawn with a sprinkler system is to set it for short cycles repeated throughout the entire day so that all watering zones are kept moist and water is evenly absorbed.
