Installing the sod with industry best practices 


Fresh sod requires a different maintenance routine than a regular lawn does. Avoid the temptation to put perfect mow lines or have a picnic on your new lawn. Follow these sod care tips to ensure your new sod takes root:

First Week

  • Avoid overwatering, but never allow the sod to dry out. Water the sod three to four times a day for five to ten minutes.
  • Avoid watering the sod in the evening.
  • Avoid foot traffic on your new lawn for at least two weeks.

Second Week

Water the lawn for 30 minutes every day, twice a day if necessary.

Third Week and Beyond 

  • After three weeks, you can mow the lawn. Keep the mower deck high, and never mow more than 1/3 the length of the grass blades.
  • Fertilize your new sod six weeks after installation.

Sod installation is in investment, and failure often comes from improper care and maintenance. Once the sod is installed, Elegant Greens can provide lawn maintenance services to ensure the sod becomes established and looks great for years to come.
