Creating your home’s ideal lawn can take a bit of time and effort. The Grounds Guys of Mt. Lebanon offer professional sod installation services for homes and businesses in Pittsburgh, PA. While some homeowners enjoy the benefits of natural grass, growing your lawn from grass seed tends to be time-consuming and requires a good deal of effort, plus the right weather conditions.

How You Should Care for Fresh Sod

Once our professional install sod at your property, you will need to follow some standard sod care tips. Fresh sod requires a unique type of maintenance and is not the same as a traditional lawn. Do not be tempted to have a picnic on your new lawn or create perfect lawnmower lines before your sod is ready. Follow these steps to make sure your fresh sod lawn grows to be healthy and attractive:

Week One

  • Do not overwater your sod, but don’t allow it to dry out. The best thing to do is to water the sod three or four times a day. Water your sod for five to ten minutes each time.
  • Avoid watering your sod in the evening. Do your watering before sundown.
  • Do not walk on your new sod for at least two weeks after installation. Foot traffic on new sod is problematic.

Week Two

  • Water your new sod lawn for 30 minutes each day. It’s fine to split the task up into two 15-minute sessions if you prefer.

Week Three & Beyond

  • Once your new sod has been in place for three weeks, it’s okay to begin mowing it. Be sure to keep the lawnmower deck high and avoid mowing more than a third of the length of the grass blades.
  • Once your new sod lawn has been in place for six weeks, you can begin to fertilize it.
