Its cool and rainy today, but we are expecting big changes starting this weekend. If you have recently moved into a new construction home or have recently laid new turfgrass during the winter/early spring, you need to be gearing up for a watering routine. Once initial green-up starts (typically between April 1st and April 15th), those with recently laid sod will need to begin watering thoroughly every day. You will want to water enough so that the soil is damp underneath the grass. Typically a sprinkler with a timer works best. Simply taking the hose and nozzle and spraying down the surface is not enough. It is also TOO EARLY to fertilize. We always recommend waiting until after April 15th the fertilize. Stay away from big box store fertilizers. Even though they say "centipede" on the bag, they typically are too high in nitrogen and can cause damage over time. Instead, visit your local lawn and garden center for a more specific blend.
