Keep your lawn healthy. If you live in an area of Texas that is still experiencing drought and low rainfall, you may want to consider decreasing the size of your lawn. Remember to water less frequently, but more deeply, to encourage healthy grass roots — they'll come in handy during periods of drought. Always follow local recommendations for water schedules or restrictions, and keep your lawn mowed to a height that is recommended for your grass type. Keep an eye out for pests like grubs and chinch bugs. If you suspect you have a problem because you're seeing brown areas in your lawn, contact your local extension office for ideas on how to identify and treat the problem.See more Southwest Garden Guides

4. Establish a mowing and watering schedule. During the first week after laying your new sod, water four times to a depth of 1 inch each time, and mow after six to sven days. During the second week water three times and mow on the seventh day, and during the third week water twice and mow on the seventh day.Never remove more than one-third of the height of your leaf blades in any single mowing. Plan to mow your grass when it's 2⅓ inches to 3 inches high, and set your mower height to 1½ inches to 2 inches. Always mow with sharpened blades for the best result.
