How To Have A Healthy Lawn
The best way to control weeds is to have a dense healthy lawn! Weeds simply have no place to get started.
When you take your Sod home it arrives at optimum nutrient levels. A fertilizer program could be implemented 30-60 days after you have installed it. Consult us at Fantasy Garden Centers regarding Magic Carpet Fertilizer. Magic Carpet will keep your lawn looking beautiful all season long.
If your previous lawn or your neighbour’s lawn has had insect problems, monitor your lawn carefully. Control measures may be necessary.
For an instantly beautiful green lawn, follow the installation steps carefully. When picking up your sod as us at Fantasy for a free installation & maintenance guide. Be sure to follow the maintenance guide for best results.
How Much Sod Do I Need?
Sod is sold by the 9 square foot roll or 1 square yard. Measure your lawn area (length x width = sq. ft., divide by 9 = sq. yards) to determine the amount of sod you will need. Example: 12′ x 30′ = 360 ft. 360 / 9 = 40 square yards of sod or 40 rolls.
Prepare Your Surface For Fresh Sod
Step 1: Prepare the area to be sodded by working and loosening the top 10-15 cm of soil. Remove any debris and lumps. Analyze soil for consistency. Soil additives/amendments, such as peat moss can be obtained from our garden center. Be sure that the grade has water running away from the buildings, toward ditches. If additional soil is needed, order our Organic Top Soil.
Hint: Lightly rolling the area will clearly show the grade (any depressions) and allow any corrections.
Step 2: Apply a high phosphorous, slow release fertilizer, such as a starter fertilizer 8-32-16 at 4kg per 100 square metre to ensure optimum fertility for the root zone.
Step 3: Rake in fertilizer to a depth of 5-10cm.
Installation Of Your New Sod
Step 4: Water prepared area lightly to settle soil and provide a moist base for turf. This will also cool the soil, reducing stress on the roots of the fresh sod (most important during hot summer days.)
Step 5: Install turf immediate after delivery. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT ALL THE SOD BE UNROLLED WITHIN THE SAME DAY OF PURCHASE. Have sufficient watering equipment available and ready.
Step 6: Begin unrolling turf along the longest straight line, such a driveway, butting all joints tightly together without overlapping. Raking ahead may be necessary to remove tractor and foot marks. Next continue to lay sod along perimeter of either end. Then lay sod in brick work fashion. As you complete one area, start watering immediately (within 15 minutes.) This will minimize the stress on the thousands of turfgrass plants. Apply at least 2-3 cm (1 inch) of water using a sprinkler for even distribution (enough that when a corner of an installed roll is lifted moisture has soaked through the roots and is being absorbed by the topsoil.)
Hint: Edges along asphalt and concrete, as well as areas on top of embankments and mounds, will require more water.
Step 7: After installing the turf, roll the entire area to improve turf/soil contact and to remove air pockets.
