Watering Tips

Frequent watering helps to speed the repair process along. Watering helps in grass seed germination and the flushing of excess nitrogen caused by pet urine. Newly germinated grass seedlings enjoy the frequent watering as well!

  • Remember, follow SWT® guidelines to maximize establishment and growth
  • It is best to water newly planted seeds with a sprinkler
  • Typically water up to 20 minutes twice daily for the first 2-3 weeks
