How to Care for Your Sod

Uhl Turf is always here to answer any of your questions about your sod and offer the following general guidelines to keep your HGT bluegrass or fescue sod healthy and green.

Early Spring (Early March to early April)

It's time to feed the sod and kill the weeds. Most home and garden centers carry a weed and feed type fertilizer - look for one that includes a broadleaf and pre-emergent crabgrass control.

Summer (Late June, early July)

Take a break from fertilizer and weed killers and simply enjoy your lawn. When watering, water heavily and less frequently to encourage deep root development.

Fall (Mid September)

Fertilize with 15 lb. 10-10-10 per 1,000 sq. ft. followed by another application six weeks later.

Winter (Mid December)

Big time Nitrogen (i,e. 46-0-0) to promote root activity during the winter which gets your lawn ready for an early spring green up. You will only need 2-3 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. If you have trouble finding this, give us a call, we ususally keep it in stock. Your neighbors may think you're crazy when they see you fertilizing in December, but they'll be jealous when they see your lawn in the spring!
