weeks. Weeks 3 and 4 the sod should be watered once daily for 30 to 45 minutes. You want to water the
sod long enough to get the soil underneath moist.

first two weeks. Weeks 3 and 4 the sod should be watered at least twice daily for 30 to 45 minutes each

Zoysia grass information:
- Best time of the year to plant Zoysia Grass: Zoysia grass installs are more suited for late spring, early summer. Zoysia is a warm season grass so if installed during these times, the sod will be able to spread more successfully.
- Zoysia has a course grass texture and a beautiful green blade that spreads both underground root system (rhizomes) and above ground (stolons). This type system create a thick, green, lush lawn that is very soft and provides a significant padding between the ground and the grass. Essentially, its a great picnic grass!
