Don’t mow your new sod until the roots have had a chance to become established. This usually happens in about two weeks.
When you mow, don’t remove more than a third of the grass blade. More than that will place undue stress on your new sod.
And make sure your mower blade is sharp for the least amount of stress on the plant as well.
FERTILIZE FOR STRONG ROOTS
About a month after installation, once the roots have started to develop and you’ve transitioned to a regular watering schedule of 2-3 times per week, you should apply fertilizer to provide the proper nutrients your new sod needs to stay healthy and grow strong roots.
We will recommend the proper fertilizer based on your soil conditions and type of sod.
