Watering new sod is not about just getting the grass blades wet. It is what’s underneath that really counts. When you install new sod, all that you’ve really done is laid down a green rug on top of the ground. The idea now is for that rug to send down roots and establish itself. For this to happen, the part of the sod that is in contact with the ground must be kept moist, especially during the first few days.


At the same time, it’s important not to over water the new grass. To check for proper watering, peel up a corner of a sod strip (it won’t damage the grass), and feel the exposed soil; it should be damp but not wet or muddy.
