Thinking of overseeding this fall? If you do most experts recommend you keep the first 1/2″ of the ground moist until the grass has sprouted to at least 1.5″. There are many factors that go into the exact amount of water needed but this is a good general rule. Be careful not to over water as the new seeds could rot and not germinate. AND the same applies when the grass has matured somewhat. Applying just the right amount of water ensuring the grass is being properly supplied water from the root system can be tricky depending on soil type, shade, slope of the area as well as weather related factors. Ask your irrigation professional to help you out with getting your newly overseeded lawn just the right amount of water!
