New Sod is Dying, is There Anything We Can Do?

2 months ago

Hey there, I live in North Carolina and my husband put new Fescue sod in our 1600sqft backyard over about 12 yards of half soil/ half compost about 10 days ago. The sod company told us to water it thoroughly every day for the first week, so we watered it twice a day for 40 minutes each time. It is turning brown and, worried we had overwatered, we tried drying it out for a day or two. It has only gotten browner, with occasional green sprouts. Certain sections look matted. What should we do? Is there anything we can do at this point?
