New Zoysia Sod, Need Watering Advice
Just had 8000 square feet of Empire Zoysia sod laid in southern Illinois on top of clay soil on Friday (72 hours ago). Landscaper installed 5-zone sprinkler system and set them to water 4 times per day for 30 minutes per zone (6:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 3 p.m, 6:30 p.m.). Three days later, feels like sod is very soft and squishy. He said that's what you want heading into this impending heat wave. We are expecting temps in high 90s and heat index 110-115 during the next 5 days. Am I correct to be worried about over-watering? When do I cut back?
