You should be fertilizing every 4 to 6 weeks with 1 pound of actual nitrogen applied to each 1,000 sq. ft. of lawn. During the hot summer months (July & Aug) fertilizing rates should be reduced by at least 50 percent.

Newly planted sod should be watered daily for the first 10 days to avoid drying out and to enable the rooting system to penetrate the new soil. Once sod has been established, watering frequency may be reduced. Do to varying soil and climate conditions, it is difficult to recommend a watering schedule. Soaking the lawn 2 to 3 times a week generally is considered adequate. Water early morning hours only. During the summer months, when temperatures remain consistently high, a daily morning watering may be necessary.
