Maintaining Your New Lawn

Enjoy your new lawn!

1.

Water, water, water.

It is critical that you water your lawn every day the first week. NEVER let the roots dry out! 
HINT: Dry is bad, mud is bad. Moist is good.
Week Two: Reduce watering to every other day.

2.

Mow after 10-14 days.

Never remove more than 1/3 of the grass in one mowing.

3.

Start it out right.

• After four weeks apply a starter fertilizer.
• Keep it green and healthy by using a maintenance fertilizer something like a TurfBuilder, there are some organic options that are great as well.

4.

Enjoy your new lawn!

Avoid heavy use of the sod until it has firmly rooted and has been mowed 2-3 times.
