    A good soaking maybe every other day, but never in mid day sun and dependant on weather (obviously).

    Once turf has taken ( you can check by carefully trying to lift a sod’s corner ) you need to ensure subsequent watering dampens soil at a deeper levels like w root to transition.

    • hi gary its sunny out now and have sprinkler going is that bad thanks very much? did not know if you meant mid day sun as in spring or summer sun? thanks ian

      • Watering in summer midday sun could scorch the grass, but watering in any midday sun is just wasteful as loss of moisture through evaporation. Hence morning and evening watering recommended. 

        • dam i just done that hope it will be okay? hi glen so first thing in moring 15 minutes on sprinkler on each 20 sqare metre side?then in evening 15 minutes on each side ? thanks so much regards ian

            The sun is weak at the moment and the soil temp is just recovering so I think you’ll be fine :)

            Grass needs ~6c soil temp upwards to really start growing.

            • thanks gary really appreciate it would you water it early morning for half hour on sprinkler? thats 15 minutes each 20 square metres once a day or twice a day? thanks so much
