Sod requires heavy watering. The goal is water frequently and heavily enough to ensure water reaches the roots of the new sod. Generally, you can water your newly sodded lawn 20 minutes per day, ideally in the morning or early afternoon, until your sod has firmly taken root.

Successful rooting can be checked by lifting the sod and seeing if it has rooted (attached) to the ground.

Newly seeded lawns require consistent watering. It is extremely important that the area stays moist until germination.

To achieve consistent moisture, you may need to water your newly seeded area with light pressure (to ensure seeds don’t wash away) morning and night – and up to three times per day if mid-day temperatures are high and/or in direct sunlight.

Generally speaking, it will take your lawn the same amount of time to recover and get in great condition as it took to get in its current condition.

That means that one application (and sometimes even one full year of service) may not turn your lawn into a golf course, BUT each application serves a purpose and provides healing treatment to your soil and grass.

It may be normal to see some weeds pop up in your yard throughout the seasons, especially depending on the package you receive.

We offer four, five, and six application packages; the more frequently our applicator visits your lawn, the more they would spot-treat pesky weeds (and thus, the less frequently they visit, the less they would spot-treat).

Generally speaking, some weeds are more difficult to prevent or maintain. Please let us know if you have any concerns, or send a photo of the weeds you’re seeing to our office by text or e-mail so we can quickly assess and solve.

If you edge your hard surfaces with an edger tool or trimmer, that can stir up the earth and germinate new weed growth.

Once Round Up has touched the weeds, they will wilt and die, but it will not prevent future weeds from germinating.

If landscape fabric is installed, its sole purpose is to separate the landscape material from the earth to prevent the landscape material from sinking into the ground.

Landscape fabric can help prevent weeds but will not 100% keep them out.

Additionally, we may work together to create a “low-maintenance” landscape for you, but no landscape is zero maintenance. That means you may choose to pull or spray weeds as you see them pop up, or sign up for our Bed Maintenance Program (designed especially to maintain landscape beds throughout the seasons).

Cutting off more than ⅓ of the grass blade can harm the grass and promote weed growth throughout the lawn.

We do our very best to provide quality mowing services that you can be proud of, while actively working to maintain a happy and healthy lawn.

You can try to rake thoroughly, water heavily, and re-seed.

Some people recommend gypsum to help absorb it.
