Sod maintenance question

625 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Richqwert7

I am new to home ownership and I decided to hire someone at the end of October to install sod and I love it. There are still some spots that I screwed up bc my dog got loose in the back yard and kicked a bunch of it up so I have to fill it in but my question is what should I be dong with new sod care in early spring. It is looking so nice already and is super green here in Illinois. I wasn't sure what to do because it looks so full already. I really wanted to know how far I should cut it down with the lawn mower too as it is super thick and really high in some areas but honestly i love it because it looks full and Lucius. Any help on maintenance and how much i should cut it would be great! Thanks

Call the company out that did the sod and they will fix the bad spots.

They should have given you a watering and care schedule.
The WORST thing you can do is cut it too short ! Would also advise staying off it when it's wet .
Adjust the wheels on your mower yo cut the grass as high as possible. The taller the grass is allowed to grow, the deeper the roots.

Great thanks for your help. They didn't give me any maintenance tips on it. I ended up buying the sod bc it's really my fault for letting my dog just soil the same spots. Thanks again!
