  1. Q: How much watering should I do after I first install the lawn?

  2. Water your new Celebration lawn thoroughly after installation ensuring that both the Celebration is wet and that the soil is moist at a depth of three inches. This is approximately one inch of water. Repeat this watering cycle everyday for the first two to three weeks. Remember that shaded areas and heavy soils require less water than full-sun areas and sandy soils. When proper rooting is evident, back off on watering gradually until you get it down to approximately one inch of water per week, instead of per day.

  3. Q: When will my new lawn be ready to mow?

    1. Mow within 10 days of installation and bag clippings for the first few mowings. New installations are often uneven and care should be taken not to “scalp” any high spots.

    2. Q: Should I do a soil test?

      Yes, it is important to know the fertility levels of your soil. Our soils are typically low in pH and in phosphorous. Without knowing what levels your soil has of these it is impossible to know how much lime and fertilize to apply to the soil before you install your sod.

    3. Q: How often should I fertilize?

      A balanced fertilizer with a slow release form of nitrogen such as 13-13-13 stems better overall results at establishment, and then use a 3-1-2 (i.e. 21-7-14) @ 5 lbs per 1000 sq/ft. As a general rule, fertilizer takes place two times a year (spring and early fall) on St. Augustine and Zoysia. On Bermuda, use 3-1-2 @ 5 lbs per 1000 sq/ft in the spring and fall with an additional Nitrogen application of 21-0-0 @ 2 lbs per 1000sq/ft in early June.
