FAQs

When should I mow new sod?

As soon as the sod has rooted in place. Do not mow if the grass has not rooted. The general rule-of-thumb is not to take more than one-third of the blade per mowing.

How often do I irrigate my new sod?

During the hotter months you should irrigate at least twice per day, once in the mid-morning and once in the afternoon. In the cooler months irrigating once per day should be fine. Once the grass has established itself you can return to your normal nighttime watering schedule.

What is the best type of sod?

That depends on many factors. What type of grass do you have now? What is your geographical location? Do you have full sun or some shade? Do you have an irrigation system? Refer to our varieties page to find the right grass for you.

Apply any pesticide within regulations stated on each label. Mowing frequency and height is different for all varieties.
