Sod Care

 

  • Quality grass simply needs water, air, sunlight and nutrients. In most areas, grass needs approximately one-inch of water a week. Infrequent and deep watering encourages deep roots and a healthy lawn.
  • Mow frequently enough (with a sharp blade) so you never cut-off more than one-third of the grass blades in a single mowing. This will also allow you to leave the clippings on the lawn so they can naturally decompose and return nutrients to the lawn.
  • Prune trees so they allow as much light as possible onto the lawn.
  • Fertilize at least biannually, or according to the specific needs of your lawn.
  • Aerate every other year to reduce compaction and increase the exchange of water and air at the root level.
