The important key to achieving a beautiful lawn is site preparation. Install the turf promptly after you receive it.

The following is a Guide for Preparing a New Lawn.

  1. Spray your lawn area with Round-Up to kill weeds and/or existing lawn. (Allow 10-14 days for best results.) Note: Please follow all State and Federal laws as well as the manufacturer's directions before application of chemicals.

  2. Flag sprinkler heads.

  3. Remove dead Lawn, Weeds, etc. This can be done by hand or a sod cutter. Sod cutters are usually available at your local rental yard. See Links.

  4. Sometimes you may need to loosen or rototill the soil to a depth of 4 to 6 inches only if soil is compacted or needs amended. Use sandy loam soil if needed. See Links.

  5. Rake and remove any large clods, rocks, or root clumps. Roll to smooth out the area. Your local rental yard usually have rollers. See Links.

  6. If you are putting the sod the next to a driveway or sidewalk, grade your area so that it is an 1/2 inch lower than the walking surface.

  7. Water the prepared area to settle ground for installation of sod DO NOT OVER WATER. You do not want muddy or soggy soil at the time of installation.

  8. Lay the turf as soon as possible after it arrives to ensure freshness (keep any un-laid turf moist and shaded to keep quality). NOTE; Sod is cut fresh to order and usually can be laid up to 12 hours after delivery.

  9. When laying sod it works best if you can start with a long, straight, line. (especially against driveway or sidewalk). Stagger the seams in each row.

  10. Push the ends and edges against each other tightly without stretching. Avoid overlapping or leaving unnecessary gaps.

  11. On slopes, lay turf across the slope instead of up and down.

  12. After laying the turf, roll entire area out to remove any air pockets and to achieve smooth level lawn.

  13. DO NOT ALLOW THE SOD TO DRY OUT! Water lightly after installation. Make sure to keep sod moist.

  14. We recommend that you sprinkle your sod 4-5 minutes 3 to 4 times per day for the first 2 weeks. DO NOT ALLOW TO PUDDLE. Be sure to watch for the following: Areas near buildings can dry out faster, extra warm or windy weather will dry out the sod faster. Continue to water regularly once sod is rooted as weather dictates. In warm weather, water more often. Once the nights become cooler, water less. Once the rain starts, stop watering unless it becomes long stretches without rain.

  15. VERY IMPORTANT: Mow your lawn 7 to 10 days after installation. Mow to 1 to 2 inches high. Check to see that it is firmly rooted (try to lift a corner) before mowing. For Water Warden mow 2 to 2 inches.
     

  16. All turf requires fertilizer. We recommend every 4 to 6 weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
    i.e. 20-10-10. There are many blends. Consult your local garden center.
