Lawn 2Watering New Grass Seed and Seedlings

Getting grass seed and new grass seedlings off to a good start is vital. This involves proper watering.

  • Water your lawn as soon after it has been seeded as possible.
  • We want the top two inches of soil to get wet. This will usually require running a sprinkler or sprinkler system for 20-25 minutes. Deep watering promotes healthy root systems.
  • Water every other morning. Mornings are always best in order to reduce the likelihood of diseases problems.
  • Once the seed germinates and the grass seedlings begin to grow (usually around two weeks), gradually transition to watering less frequently but more heavily.
  • Taper off watering as the grass becomes taller and more mature.
