Before having your sod delivered, your lawn will need to be prepared. Begin by ensuring the area has been properly prepared by removing all of the old lawn, leaving the soil exposed. Prior to the sod installation, inspect all irrigation zones to ensure that the sod will be watered immediately and effectively after installation.
Once the sod is installed, inspect your new lawn carefully and report any issues to the installer or sod producer. These issues will be addressed quickly. Lastly, plan to apply an insecticide/fungicide combination within 48 hours of the installation and again in one week. These applications are very critical from June through October.
