New Sod Problems

I had new sod layed out about a week and a half ago, and it seems like the edges of the sod squares are starting to die(turn yellow)! Is this normal? What have I done wrong or how can I prevent this death from growing!!

This is normal. It will fix itself once it starts growing again.


My idea of a perfect day: No where to go and all day to get there.

I agree with marvin, but do you have a boarder around your lawn or is it butted up to the sidewalk? The reason I ask is if the edge of your sod is exposed it will die as well.

It is/might be normal IF you have sod that is going dormant anyway. It is not normal if any part of it is dying. It has not been watered properly. Are there any new roots?

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. If you wouldn't put your name on it, it ain't done right!
