Tips for Keeping Up Sod in Edmonton
- Don’t walk on the sod! Walking on the sod applies unneeded stress and pressure to the grass which is trying to take root. If you need to walk on the sod in the first couple weeks, make sure that you take different routes so you are not trodding on the same path. Walking on the grass can compact the topsoil which will make it harder for the grass to grow.
- Watering. The sod needs to be watered every day for the first two weeks. After the first two weeks are up, water the sod every other day. Each day, the sod needs about one inch of water. You can measure the amount of water that your grass is getting by using a jar or cup. Once you can see the level of water in the cup has reached an inch, the lawn has had enough water!
- Fertilize the sod for about 4 weeks after installation. You can use a standard fertilizer. The higher nitrogen levels help the grass grow thicker and greener.
- Mow the tips of the grass when it gets taller than 2 inches. Make sure that you don’t cut off more than one-third of the grass height. You can do this by making sure that the blade is set to cut very high. You will probably need to mow your sod somewhere between 10 days and 2 weeks after installation.
