    My wife and I recently moved into Overland Park, and with all the rain, VM was unable to lay any Sod.

    Well, after about 3 weeks the sod was installed last evening. I have not been able to get through to VM Cust. Svc, so if anyone has instructions on caring for the sod, I would greatly appreciate the info.

    Thanks,

    Water it. Then fertilize this fall. Check the internet like Scotts Lawn.

    For the first week you want to try and water it everyday. The sod has no root system in the top soil so it can not retain water very well, thus you need to water everyday. They also recommend to water it so much that it will "squish" when you walk on it. Then make sure to fertilze it in the fall like the previous post states. But right now, water is a "big" deal on fresh sod.
