Installing Grass Sod? Here are a Few Tips to Get You Started
Grass sod should be installed on 10-15cm depth good quality class B topsoil/loam. Before laying sod, ensure all soil is graded properly to allow for drainage, and compacted by rolling with a sod roller. For best results, a starter fertilizer should be mixed in with the top 1-2cm of topsoil.
Sod should be laid as soon as possible after delivery. Waiting more than 2 days will put your grass sod at risk of dying. Grass sod should then be laid so all pieces fit tightly together, and rolled with a sod roller once again. The newly laid sod should be watered immediately so the soil underneath the sod is completely saturated with water (1-2 hours with a sprinkler).
Watering/maintenance of grass sod:
Watering schedules vary depending on temperature, but a general guideline is as follows:
- Daily watering for the first week, every second day for the next 1-2 weeks, and 2-3 times per week until the sod is established.
- Allow the grass to grow for 4-6 weeks before cutting, cutting a maximum of 1/3 the total length on the first mowing. Continue to mow and water as needed.
Good luck with your grass sod planting!
