Caring for Your New Sod Installation

We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality products and workmanship. Once your new sod installation is complete, it's up to you to make sure it gets the care it needs to thrive. Here's what to do:


All new sod areas must be thoroughly watered to help proper root establishment. The following watering times should be implemented:
  • May – September: 15-20 minutes, once a day, for 4 weeks
  • October – April: 15-20 minutes, once a day, for 2 weeks


The sod should not be mown/cut for 3-4 weeks to allow the root systems ample time to firmly establish into the existing soil. We recommend regular turf treatments of insecticides, fungicides and fertilizers be applied to provide the best environment for the healthiest turf.


New sod is warrantied for a period of one (1) year, assuming the material is properly watered and fed as outlined above. Exceptions apply – see Disclaimer.
