The easiest way to install Water Silos for grass is before you put the new sod.
- Water Silos (about 20 - 25 grams per square yard)
- Soil and any fertilizer you want to use
- Remove grass- You will need to begin with a clean area. Remove any grass or weeds left in the area you will be installing your new sod.
- Cover with soil- Ask a landscaper or wherever you bought your soil which type of soil is good for your area and the season. Cover entire area with soil and level it out.
- Apply Water Silos- You might find it easier to figure out how much Water Silos your area requires first and putting that amount in a bowl or bucket. This way you don't use too much or too little. Then divide up the area in square yards or whatever helps you. Add Water Silos by hand or cup and do it low to the ground to avoid wind blowing it away. Make sure to spread it evenly.
- Add sod- When adding the sod on top of the Water Silos try not to step on the Water Silos.
- Water your lawn- Water thoroughly so the roots of the grass can settle and so the Water Silos can retain maximum capacity. After the first week or two you can reduce watering to once every 15 days. Keep an eye on your grass. Different grass types, soil conditions, and weather conditions may cause you to water more or less. Getting some good rain will reduce the number of times you water your lawn a year.
