    keep it moist until your area gets to cold,make sure it is watered in the early morning to retain moisture through the day

    We were told here in Maryland to keep sod watered well. We were also told to put down Scotts winterizer fertilizer in mid November and then to put fertilizer plus pre emergent down in March. You could call your local agricultural extension office.

      Thank you, Lynda. I appreciate the information. Together with the other response I received I ought to be able to prepare my lawn for Winter and look forward to a healthy lawn come Spring.
