Best Watering Practices for a New Grass
Unlike a typical watering schedule, new grass needs more frequent watering. Remember, rain can count as water if it is significant enough.
- Mist It – The first few days after seeding, mist your grass four times a day to keep the top ¼ inch of the seedbed moist without oversaturating.
- Water It – Then water every 3-4 days for 20-30 minutes
- Keep It Wet – It is important to keep the area from drying out to support germination. We recommend watering for 5-10 minutes on all in-between days.
- Don’t Over Water – Try not to let the newly seeded area puddle or wash away. Once the grass grows to be about 2 inches, you can resume longer, less frequent waterings.
