How To...

WATERING - LAWNS
  1. After seeding, water frequently but lightly, 2-3 times per day (10-20 minutes each time) depending on how hot and dry the weather is.
  2. After 10 days to 2 weeks, water 1-2 times per day (30-45 minutes each time).
  3. After 3-4 weeks, reduce the frequency of watering, but INCREASE the length of time the sprinkler is on.
  4. After 2-3 months you should be watering 1-2 times per week, applying 1 INCH of water each week. This encourges the roots to go deeper.
SPECIAL NOTES:
  1. After 3-5 weeks apply 25-2-4 slow release fertilizer. This is an extremely important step to ensure that your lawn gets off to a healthy start. The higher nitrogen is necessary to build roots, which results in a thicker lawn with less weeds.
  2. Approximately September 1st. apply 12-12-20 slow release fertilizer to winterize the top.
  3. Approximately November 1st. apply 25-2-4 slow release fertilizer. The higher nitrogen is used to store carbohydrates in the roots so the grass has immediate energy in the spring for maximum root growth. This leads to a greener, thicker, and healthier lawn all summer long.
