Sod or Artificial Turf

What to expect on the day of your new sod installation

  • Remove all of the existing grass and weeds
  • Mark off the location of the sprinkler heads
  • Roto-till the lawn to loosen the soil and promote healthy root growth.
  • Apply a top dressing to resurface the yard where needed.
  • Install the new sod in a staggering joint fashion to ensure you do not encounter any water runoff with the new sod.
  • Water roll in the new sod for great root contact and a smooth finish.
  • Test sprinkler system and provide watering instructions

Fresh Sod Care

Fresh sod requires a different maintenance routine than a regular lawn does. Avoid the temptation to put perfect mow lines or have a picnic on your new lawn. Follow these sod care tips to ensure your new sod takes root:

First Week

  • Avoid overwatering, but never allow the sod to dry out. Water the sod three to four times a day for five to ten minutes.
  • Avoid watering the sod in the evening.
  • Avoid foot traffic on your new lawn for at least two weeks.

Second Week

  • Water the lawn for 30 minutes every day, twice a day if necessary.

Third Week and Beyond

  • After three weeks, you can mow the lawn. Keep the mower deck high, and never mow more than 1/3 the length of the grass blades.
  • Fertilize your new sod six weeks after installation.

Sod installation is in investment, and failure often comes from improper care and maintenance. This is why at Landscaping Yuma, we can provide lawn installation & maintenance services to ensure the sod becomes established and looks great for years to come.
