What You Need To Know

Sod is perishable and must not be allowed to remain on the pallet.

Proper watering is essential to the establishment of your new sod. During the two weeks, keep the sod and soil beneath completely soaked. It is almost impossible to overwater during this period. As a general guide, water 3 times a day during these critical two weeks. Night watering is not advised. Watering times should be approximately 15 to 20 minutes. This may need to be increased during very hot weather. 

 

During the third week, reduce watering to 1-2 times per day, gradually allowing the soil to firm. Mow after three weeks with your mower set at the tallest cutting height to reduce scalping. Never mow off more than 1/3 of the grass. 

 

After three weeks, your sod should be established and you may return to a normal watering routine.

 

Stay off your new sod for at least 14 days.

 

Fertilize your new sod three weeks after installation and then every six weeks.

 

Control your pets. Urine spots and "foot printing" on soft, soggy sod may cause permanent problems

 

BLUEISH GRAY AREAS

These are spots that have wilted because they are not getting as much water as the adjacent areas. Soak with a garden hose until you can adjust your sprinkler system for better coverage (adding a head, etc.).

SOD NOT ROOTING

Within 10 days, your sod should have many roots emerging. If not, check your watering. Note: Sod in shade will root very slowly, if at all. Most turf grass sods require 4 to 5 hours of full sun or an entire day of filtered light to successfully root and become established. Sodding in shady areas is not recommended.

BROWN SPOTS

These can be caused by pets, dryness, areas that are not rooting, fungus or possibly grubs. We carry fungicide and insecticide. About 95% of the time, it is due to lack of water. Check by pushing a screw driver into the ground where the sod is green and then into the brown spot. If it is harder to push into the brown spot, you know it is just dry.  

MUSHROOMS

Don't worry about these. Just cut back on the watering and they will go away.
