Watering sod grass is an important step in the care and maintenance of your lawn. Here are recommendations for watering your Dallas sod grass.
When you have new sod grass that is installed, it is crucial to water heavily for the first 7-10 days, after which you can start to scaling down to a more normal watering schedule.
Typically, for the first week you would be watering for 15 minutes per station, three times a day.
In the second week, move to watering every other day to give your new sod a chance to get established before you start watering regularly.
Remember, you should aim for an even flow of water that will soak into the ground and help it grow strong roots.
You can start following your local watering guidelines for established lawns after the first three weeks.

Watering Established Grass
If you’ve just installed sod, congratulations! Watering grass is a very important step in helping your new lawn to thrive. Here are some of the best ways to water established grass so that it stays healthy and looking great.
One of the most important things to remember when watering grass is to water deeply and less often. This encourages the roots to grow deep into the soil, which helps the grass to withstand drought and other stresses. watering grass too frequently or not deeply enough can lead to shallow roots that are more susceptible to damage.
The best time of day to water grass is in the early morning, before the heat of the day sets in. watering grass in the evening can lead to fungal problems, as the grass stays wet overnight. If you must water in the evening, make sure to do so early enough that the grass will have time to dry off before nightfall.
How much water your grass needs will vary depending on the time of year and the weather. In general, watering once or twice a week should be sufficient. During hot, dry periods, you may need to water more frequently. Be sure to check the soil before watering, as it may not need additional moisture if it is still damp from previous watering.
