Prep & Maintenance
Ensuring your sod maintains it’s luster begins with proper preparation along with continued care and maintenance.
Measure the area
Our pallets cover 450 square feet (50 square yards). Measure the area’s length and width, then multiply the numbers together. Subtract from that any area that does not need sod, such as the house or existing landscaping.
Remove existing grass and debris
Sod needs direct contact with dirt. Existing grass needs to be killed 7 days prior to installation so no residual effect from the chemical remain.
Roots should start establishing within the first week. This can be tested by pulling up a piece of sod and checking for white fingerling roots coming from the bottom of the sod. Until roots are well established, watering your sod regularly is advised. During the heat of summer, sod should be watered 3 times per day; early morning, late morning, and early afternoon. Avoid watering late in the day as that promotes fungus.
Fertilizing is not advisable until the fall. We recommend a root producing fertilizer at that time which is higher in Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K).
If your sod is establishing well, it can be mowed after 3 weeks. Otherwise, give it some extra time. With Fescue, mowing should be done late in the evening, after grass is dried off. It is advisable during the hot months to keep it at 3.5″ or higher, 4″ is ideal. For optimum results, blades should be kept sharp and clean.
