Preparing new sod for spring


I just planted this sod in September and was wondering what I should do to it during the winter, if anything?. Also what is the first step to prepare it once the warmer weather starts to arrive? As you cam see my dog accidentally go through the gate to that side and peed in a few spots!!Thanks

If you really wanted to do something now- you could apply an application of an organic fertilizer. This has iron in it and will help it come out pretty green in the spring. Otherwise bast advice is go to Scotts fertilizer website and follow the directions there. Aerate once per season if you can and make sure cut it when needed, and water it when needed! Other than that- enjoy!

And don't let your dog use it as a washroom if you want a decent lawn!
