I think so too. The sod is recovering now and the front yard looks a lot better so this is definitely helping. I tried the soil saturation thing as well. Thanks guys! =)

as for the sunburn thing...hmm I'm not sure but after my personal experience I don't think I'd recommend watering when the suns out and it's 30 degrees...didn't go too well for me or that's what I'm assuming. That said, I do think it'll be fine if you water it when it's cool outside.

Wow! You've been really unlucky. The one I'm using is 5 years old, (Canadian Tire), and it hasn't even needed a new washer! I use mine to water my raised beds every other day where I have all my tomato plants. We do have an in-ground sprinkler system, but the tomatoes need much more water than the sprinkler system gives them twice a week.


I agree! I have a rectangular lawn (30'x50']and find the oscillating (back and forth) ones far superior. It has adjustments for flow control, width and length of spray pattern and only cost $30. We have a crushed red shale pathway beside the lawn so its easy to see the water line and I put several small containers around the yard. The dispersion is perfect.

if its new sod patches its probably just beacause you had to cut the roots to transplant sod.

it would take a year(many months) at least to establish the sod like it never moved. I think its expected to get some die off on just about anything newly harvested and transplanted. (cuttings roots)
