Question: How often should I water my new plantings? (during the first month)
Top Answer (44% of 285 votes): Once a day.

Answer: Once a day
Explanation: Water plants as soon as you get them in the ground. Allow the water to soak in, then water again until the soil is thoroughly moistened. Week one: Water plants daily or every other day. Recently planted roots will absorb moisture from a small area until they begin to grow. Week two onward: Unless the weather is extremely hot and dry, you may be able to decrease watering frequency to two or three times per week until the fall rains begin. Watering New Sod: Once installed, apply at least 1? of water. During the rooting process (10-14 days), water lightly twice daily. Water should not puddle, but the roots need to stay moist. As the roots deepen, gradually lesson your watering schedule.
Mist-O-Matic, Inc
Answer: Every third day
Explanation: You should water your lawn half an inch every three days—or an inch of water once a week. Sometimes you shouldn't water at all if your soil is hydrated. You can check by taking a screwdriver and pushing it into the soil. If it slides down easily, then your lawn is hydrated.

JA Miller Landscaping and Lawn care
ProMatcher
Answer: Three times a day
Explanation: When watering by sprinkler (in ground or manual): run your sprinkler to the point of run-off, turn off and allow the water to penetrate, repeat once or twice. Most sprinkler systems can and should be programmed to cycle through stations repeatedly. You can determine the output & efficiency of your sprinklers with the ‘can-test’. Space shallow cans in a straight line out from sprinkler, run sprinkler for 30 minutes, take note of the various amounts of water in each can and adjust your watering technique accordingly. It’s always best to water in the morning so your plants are dry before nightfall when wet foliage will encourage a number of diseases.

Green Leaf Landscape
Answer: Every other day
Explanation: Use water wisely. Water plants when they need it, not by the clock or calendar. Water according to your soil type and the weather. Do not apply water faster than the soil can absorb it. Choose the right method. A soaker hose applies water directly to the soil and reduces evaporation. If you are planting a few plants in an existing planting bed, hand watering can be an effective way to get the new plants the water they need, while not over-watering the rest of the bed. Remember…. • Avoid planting in hot, dry weather, which can easily stress plants. If you must plant in summer, plant in the cool of the morning. • Watering early in the morning means less water is lost to evaporation. • Even drought tolerant plants need regular water until they are established.

Answer: Once a day
Explanation: Most new plantings need regular watering. You could just as easily water every other day and still yield good results, though, it mainly depends on the soil and weather of your area, and if the plants even need to be watered at all. Slower, deeper, less frequent waterings ensure that the rootball is getting water and also helps the plant to be drought resistant in the future.

JM Design Gurus
ProMatcher
Answer: Three times a day
Explanation: Frequency and length of watering will depend on how warm, how windy, and how rapidly the lawn dries out following each watering. Remember that the goal during week one is to keep the sod and the soil beneath moist all of the times. Make sure that your sprinkler system gives you head to head coverage so water application is uniform. This is critical as almost all sod failures are due to improper coverage of the irrigation system.

OCD Lawn Care
Answer: Once a day
Explanation: When planting, water plants as soon as you get them in the ground. Allow the water to soak in and drain, and water again, until the soil is thoroughly moistened. Spring through Fall, When Weather is Dry For the first week or so after planting… Water just-planted plants frequently - daily or every other day - as the roots will not be able to access soil moisture from a very large area until they begin to grow. After the first week or so... Unless the weather is extremely hot and dry, you may be able to decrease watering frequency, perhaps to two or three times per week, for the next month or so. Always REMEMBER-Water plants when they need it, not by the clock or calendar. Water according to your soil type and the weather. Do not apply water faster than the soil can absorb it. Water DEEPER not more frequently!!!
