Month old Sod is starting to turn yellow in some areas

grappler1999June 10, 2013

My one month old Sod is starting to turn yellow in some areas. I've posted pictures. Can my new sod be saved in these areas and how can I save it? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

It looks like heat or fertilizer burn, but could be something else. I'm assuming Kentucky bluegrass sod???

Where in CO are you? In the hills or on the plains?

Is shade a factor in the area?

How often are you watering and for how long?

Have you used any fertilizer? herbicide? Insecticide? Fungicide?

How long did the sod sit on the pallet before being installed?

Did the installer roll the sod down?

I'm in the plains where it's hot. There is no shade. I'm watering in the mornings and evenings for 10 mins. I have not used any fertilizer and the sod did not sit on the pallet long.
