Sod Do’s and Don’ts
Sod in Kansas City is a great way to make your lawn look nice instantly. A beautiful green lawn can be just what your home needs. It is important to make sure your ground is prepped and ready to make a great home for the roots of the sod. It is important to make sure it is installed correctly.
Sod is all about proper installation and proper care after. After sod is installed, make sure you water it consistently for the next 2-3 weeks. A professional can set your sprinkler system timer appropriately for the area.
Do not neglect your sod. Forgetting water sod is a sure way to kill it quickly. Make sure you keep it moist while the roots are taking. Not prepping the ground beforehand is the next worse thing. Make sure you kill off the lawn area that is left beforehand to get rid of any old roots.
Seeding is a great and cheaper alternative to sod. However, it does take much longer to see results. For seeding we recommend pairing it with aeration in the fall. This will allow the seed to make deeper roots and become more established before winter.
To keep either sod or seed looking strong and healthy all year round it is important to use a fertilizer program. This will give both services the boost they need to stay green and avoid weeds throughout the year. Once again, your professional landscaper will be able to apply the right chemicals at the right time each year.
