Sod Question

I am going to patch a few spots in my yard with sod where I dribbled gas and other crap. Someone told ne not to water the new sod. Doesn't make sense to me, but I don't know ...

Does anyone know if this is correct?

No, this is not correct, you must water the new sod.
Personally, if this was my own lawn, I would not put sod down in the heat of this August, I would wait for cooler temps in Sept.

Unless it was a large area, it will probably fill in by itself in time with the help of a little fert.
Conan, what is best in life? To crush the Democrats, to see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentation of the liberals.

the nest time you see that person who told you NOT to water new sod, punch him in the face.
