We are dedicated to top-notch quality, and second-to-none customer service. If you want your sod installation done right, The Boyz Landscaping and Maintenance has you covered.
Water within hours of installation! Newly-installed sod should not sit for more than 3 hours without initial watering.
Immediately after installation, the sod will need 1 inch of water.
During warm months, multiple waterings per day may be required for the first three
days. (Irrigation systems are designed for maintenance watering not establishment needs.)
After the first day, watering can be cut back to 1⁄2 an inch for the next 3 to 6 days,
depending on rain events.
Day 7 through 10, the watering should be stopped, and the sod allowed to firm up so it can be mowed. Mow on a 45-degree angle to the seams, making sure no more than a 1/3 of the leaf is removed. (Approximately 2.5 to 2.75 inches).
Immediately after mowing is completed, the area needs to be watered with an inch of water.
After the first mowing, and 2 to 3 days of heavy watering, this can be cut back to approximately 1 inch per week over an every-other-day program. (Although, these next couple weeks are susceptible to change based on how well the initial 7 to 10 days have been managed, weather and rain events.)
