For a newly SEEDED lawn:

  • Keep seeds evenly moist
  • Avoid flooding the seed as it will wash away
  • Water daily for about 20 minutes
  • Sunny spots may need additional watering
  • Water 2x per day for faster germination
  • Stay off seeded area until established
  • Once seed germinates, continue to water, keeping soil moist but not soggy
  • Once cooler temperatures slow the growth, watering can stop

For a newly SODDED lawn:

  • Keep it watered daily for 45 minutes to an hour each morning, unless we get a saturating rain
  • Water 2x per day if temperatures are over 80 degrees
  • Do this for the first 3-4 weeks and then 3 times per week for the rest of the season
  • Stay off of it for the first two weeks to give it a chance to take root
  • Wait 2-3 weeks to mow it for the first time and be sure to set your mower to a high setting and bag the grass clippings
