TAKING CARE OF YOUR NEW LANN
IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOUR NEW LAWN REMAIN DAMP AT ALL TIMES FOR THE FIRST TWO WEEKS AFTER INSTALLATION. THIS WILL REQUIRE WATERING A MINIMUM OF 2 TIMES A DAY AND UP TO 4 TIMES A DAY IN HOT WEATHER
LAWN CARE MAINTENANCE –
After two weeks, cut back on your watering gradually by eliminating the late day watering and keeping the early morning watering.
Keep pet and foot traffic to a minimum for the first 10 days after installation.
Wait at least 10 days before mowing. Bluegrass and Fescue are both tall grasses – they like to be cut and maintained at 2 to 4 inches.
Your lawn does not need to be fertilized in the season it is installed. Fertilize your lawn topically with “New Lawn Starter” for the first Spring or Fall season after your sod was installed.
Spring or Summer Sod Installation = Fall application of “New Lawn Starter”
Fall or Winter Sod Installation = Spring application of “New Lawn Starter”
After one season of “New Lawn Starter,” you may follow this regular yearly fertilization schedule:
March or April – Apply Spring fertilizer
Summer Months – Applications of Ironite as needed for yellowing
September – Fall fertilizer
Early November – Winterizer to retain color and promote good root growth through the winter months
Throughout the year – Gypsum may be added for soil conditioning
