Sod Frequently Asked Questions
How long will sod live on a pallet?
Sod is a living plant that we recommend be installed and watered within 12 hours of delivery or pick-up.
When can sod be installed?
Sod can be installed year-round. It can even be layered on frozen ground if needed. Fall and spring are ideal seasons for sod installation in Southwest Florida. In the heat of summer, sod will require more water than cooler season installations.
Why should I install sod instead of seeding?
Sod is ready for full use within a couple of weeks of installation. Sod is relatively inexpensive, and adds value to your property the moment it is installed. A sodded lawn needs no special care because it is a mature lawn when installed, whereas a seeded lawn requires years of care to reach maturity. Once sod has been installed, just water, mow and fertilize.
How do I maintain my lawn?
To maintain a quality lawn, the grass requires water, sunlight and nutrients. Frequent mowing with sharp blades is a necessity. Dull blades can cause the grass to be torn instead of cut, leaving a bruise or jagged leaf edge and adding to the risk of turf disease.
Mow when the sod is dry to prevent wet clumping masses from being left behind by the mower and return mulched clippings to the sod. When the clippings are returned a small amount of organic matter and beneficial nutrients are returned to the soil, improving soil condition. Clippings can and should be collected when they are long and thick, and when the potential for disease development is increased.
Use the proper fertilizers and weed control engineered for your specific sod type. Remember to fertilize according to the seasonal schedules required by your sod. Fertilization schedules can be found on the packaging of most quality fertilizers call us today for a complete custom schedule.
