I'm a beginner at lawn care so all advice is welcome. I'm completely new to Bermuda and sod so any advice will help. I'm moving into my new house in 2 weeks and we will be getting Bermuda grass sod laid down. When I move in what is the first things I need to do for the lawn? How often should I water at first and how much? Should I put down any start up fertilizer down? Should I put any pre-emergent down? When should I put down weed killer? I do live in Texas and August is the hottest month for us but cooler weather is around the corner. If there is another thread that has all the information on it for my questions feel free to direct it to me. When should I do my first mow. I do plan on using a reel mower. If you need more information please feel free to ask.
