How to Water Your Sod
Written By Ben Niven
You will need to water your new sod within the first thirty minutes after it is installed. You will need to apply around 1 inch of water so that the soil underneath the sod is very wet. You can pull back a corner of the sod to test the soil. Ideally, the soil will be wet for 3-4 inches deep. You can test this by using a sharp gardening tool. Stick the gardening tool down in the soil and see if it pushes in easily for 3-4 inches. If so, you have completed your first step in watering your sod.
