How long does it take for new sod to take root?


Answer by  eyeguy (3760)

New sod will take root within two weeks if placed in light healthy loomey soil. If the roots are given proper water it is a very fast process


Answer by  Valentine62 (2131)

It takes about three weeks to a month and that is with watering every day. However, do not over water the new grass, about an inch of water. Once the sod takes root and grows, cut back on the watering to at least once or twice a week. Do not mow until grass is growing well.

On the average it takes about two to three weeks for new sod to take root in the ground. Of course this depends on how you take care of it. If it was installed correctly and watered on a daily basis. Also prior to laying the sod it is good to apply a starter fertilizer to the ground.

water with sprinkler system. if you have prepped you soil, do not lift the sod up to water.. just make sure you are giving the sod enough water until the rain takes over.. it is suggested 2 mowing's before you put your new lawn through hard play. just a good soil base.. and yes home depot still sell sod..
