Make Your Lawn The Envy Of The Neighborhood
Your lawn has been planted with the best sod grown. It doesn't end there. It will need your help to continue to grow healthy and lush.
Don't Set Your Sprinklers And
Until the roots extend into the soil, your grass needs regular watering. You should water daily in the early morning hours. Depending on what the weather is like and the water restrictions in your area, it may take somewhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour to get a full soaking.
This should be followed for 2-3 weeks, then once a day for a week or two depending on what the weather is like. After the fourth week, two or three times a week once a day will work best. Don't just set the sprinklers and forget about them. Too much water will be harmful.
Proper Growth Begins With Fertilizer
A light application of high-quality fertilizer will help your new lawn immediately. Fertilizer should be applied lightly and frequently during establishment and periods of frequent watering (March and October).
The grass will continue to develop strong roots, runners, and blades. As the grass grows, it will be able to resist weeds if properly taken care of. Get the lawn you've always dreamed of today.
Once the sod is established, usually after one month, apply a fertilizer appropriate for the grass you have chosen. We recommend fertilizing twice a year (October and March) and to use the product called 16-4-8.
We advise that you don't fertilize in summer months.
Many don’t know, but sod cut straight from the farms and laid in your yard will experience stress. During this time you are also going to be giving your sod more water than usual. The added moisture is another reason your new lawn can be prone to diseases. We recommend putting down a good quality fungicide. Your lawn professional should have a product they use, if not, you can purchase one on your own either online or at a big box store. As with all products used on your lawn, please follow labeled instructions properly to receive the best care possible for the sod.
