WHEN TO MOW


1) Your new lawn will generally be rooted enough to mow in 10-14   days  after installation.  As soon as the sod is rooted enough that the mower won't lift the grass up and damage it, start the lawn on a mowing schedule.

2) The basic rule is never remove more than 1/3 of the leaf blade during  a single mowing.

3) Mow when grass height reaches 2-1/2 to 3 inches.  Set your mower at a cutting height of 1-1/2 to 2 inches.

4) For best appearance, keep mower blades sharp.

As mentioned on our installation page, as soon as you are able to start watering without interfering with your work, do so. Do not wait until you are completely done with your entire lawn to start watering. The longer the sod is installed without receiving water the greater the chance of problems. Also don't forget to water to the point of soil saturation under the sod. We recommend leaving a sprinkler in one area for a minimum of 30 minutes, picking up the sod to see if the dirt under the sod is wet, and then continuing to water if necessary until dirt is saturated under sod.
