Be certain that your new lawn has enough moisture to survive hot, dry, or windy periods. Irrigate and water areas near buildings, drives and sidewalks more often or more heavily. These are areas where reflected heat tends to dry the turf more quickly.

During the first three weeks, avoid heavy or concentrated use of your new lawn. This gives the roots an opportunity to firmly knit with the soil, and insures that the turf will remain smooth.

Your new sod lawn increases your property value significantly. With proper care, it will remain a great asset, providing beauty, a clean playing surface, and an improved environment. Mow often, generally removing no more than 1/3 of the grass height at a mowing. Keep your mower blade sharp. Follow the Lawn Maintenance section for mowing recommendations for your type of lawn.
