Measuring and Ordering

Schedule your order for delivery of sod after prep work is done. Prompt installation on the day of delivery is crucial to a strong beginning for your new sod.

Soil Preparation

For best result, rototill or spade the area to a depth of 8 to 12 inches. Eliminate drainage problems by having soil slope away from foundations etc.

 

Soil test your lawn area with the assistance of a qualified service in the area.

 

Then rake and smooth the soil removing rocks, roots, and large clods, Roll the area lightly with a lawn roller 1/3 full of water. This will firm the soil surface and reveal low areas that need more soil. Keep the grade 1 inch below sidewalks or driveway.

 

Water the prepared area to settle soil and provide a moist base for the sod. Moistening to a depth of 6 inches is recommended for most soils.

Turf Installation

Install your lawn immediately upon delivery. Begin watering your lawn within 30 minutes of installation. Turf is a living plant that requires ground contact and moisture to survive!

 

Begin installing sod along the longest straight line, such as a driveway or sidewalk. Butt and push edges and ends against each other tightly, without stretching. Avoid gaps or overlaps. Stagger the joints in each row in a brick-like pattern, using a large sharp vinyl or utility type knife to trim corners, etc. Avoid leaving small strips at outer edges as they will not retain moisture. On slopes, place the sod pieces across the slope.

 

After installing the sod, roll the area to improve turf/soil contact and remove any air pockets.

Watering

Give your new lawn at least 1 inch of water with-in ½ hour of installation. Water daily or more often, keeping turf moist until it is firmly rooted (about 2 weeks). Then less frequent and deeper watering should begin.

 

Weather conditions will dictate the amount of watering. Be certain that your new sod has enough moisture to survive hot, dry or windy periods. Water areas near building more often where reflected heat dries the sod.

 

CAUTION! During the first three weeks, avoid heavy or concentrated use of your new lawn.
