Soil preparation is extremely important to the establishment of your sod.
Install your lawn immediately upon delivery. We harvest all of our sod to the order because sod is a living plant that requires ground contact and moisture to survive.
When it comes to trimming, cut the sod on the back side of the roll. Use a sharp, stiff bladed knife, such as a linoleum knife or a box cutter/utility knife.
During the first three weeks, avoid heavy or concentrated use of your new lawn. This will give the roots an opportunity to firmly knit with the soil, and insures that the turf will remain smooth and level.
After 90 days your sod should be accustomed to its new home. Your practice of watering and mowing will be much different from when you first installed the sod.
Mow often, generally removing no more than 1/3 of the grass height per mowing. Keep the mower blade sharp. Fertilizer and chemical applications will depend on climate, soil, insects, weed, and disease conditions. Your new Ultra 3-D sod will require fewer inputs providing a beautiful Denser, Darker, Dwarfer sod. Most importantly, use common sense. Try not to under or over water, fertilize, or spray your lawn.
