|i purchased / planted sod from HD about 6 weeks ago. it is watered twice a day by irrigation - and its doing great! is there anything i should be doing besides watering it to make sure it 'takes' and will come back next year? basically, is taking care of new sod different than regular grass?

|There's no difference in the care your new sods needs - it's just like any other lawn, but it has the advantage of having a mature root system. Watering regularly is important; feeding this fall will help it remain healthy all winter and green up quickly next spring. Use a winterizer type fertilizer in the fall. In the meantime, enjoy your new turf!
