  A blue-gray area is a sign of water stress. Place like-size containers in that area and another in a green area. Water for 15 minutes, and then measure both containers. If the dry area is not getting the same amount of water, adjust or replace the sprinkler heads covered this area.

  FAQ About Lawns  
  WHY SHOULD I INSTALL SOD INSTEAD OF JUST USING SEEDS?  
  Sod is already established. It is the best way to go. Also, seeds take over twenty-one days to show some growth, which also is not a sure thing to be full and healthy lawn.  
  HOW LONG DO I WATER MY ESTABLISHED LAWN?  
  Water long enough to wet the top eight (8) inches of soil. If the soil is compacted and/or the slope causes the water to run off prior to soaking in, it may be necessary to water several times with a +/- hour gap between watering to put on sufficient water without excessive runoff or standing water.

  CAN HYBRID BERMUDA GROW IN THE SHADE AREA?  
  No. Bermudas need full sun in the hottest part of the day (10 am to 3 pm). Our St. Augustine sod will grow in partial shade and can be installed March through May, and then again in the fall.  
  CAN WE WALK ON OUR NEW LAWN?  
  It is best to give the sod an opportunity to firmly establish before heavy usage. That will prevent indentations in the moist soil and allow the roots time to grow deep.  
  CAN DOGS CAUSE YELLOW SPOTS IN MY LAWN?  
  YES - dogs leave a large quantity of urine in one spot. The salt in the urine burns the grass. Hybrid Bermuda grass normally recovers within two weeks. To prevent urine burn, give your dog METHIGEL, a natural vitamin available through a veterinarian.  
  HOW MUCH ABOVE GRADE SHOULD I SET SPRINKLER HEADS?  
  Set "pop up" sprinkler heads level with grade up to 1/2" above grade. Your sod will come within +/- one half inch of soil, so if the heads are more than 1/2" above grade they can be damaged by objects that hit the ground such as the lawnmowers knives. Make sure sprinklers you use pop up at least 4" so the spray pattern is not hindered by tall grass.
