Make a sketch of your lot and then measure the area you wish to sod. Calculate the square feet of sod needed (length in feet x width in feet) then divide by 9 to convert to square yards. If you need help just call us: 252-637-5883
It is essential to begin watering new turf grass sod within a half hour after it is laid on the soil. Apply at least 1in (2.5cm) of water so that the soil beneath the turd is very wet. Ideally the soil 3 to 4 inches (7 to 10 cm) below the surface will be moist.
We recommend a root starter solution for newly planted shrubs and trees. This encourages root growth and aids in transplant shock especially for field grown or bare root ornamentals. Also summer heat can stress out newly planted shrubs.
Maintaining Centipede Lawn
Once your lawn is established, fertilize and water only as necessary to maintain a turf tight enough to resist weed invasion and to keep the grass in a healthy condition so that it is producing adequate growth for a fresh, neat appearance.
Make a sketch of your lot and then measure with a tape or wheel the area you wish to sod. Measure the length in feet. Measure the width in feet. Multiply this together and then divide that total by 9. This will tell you how many square yards you will need.
Why Centipede Grass?
Originally introduced from China in seed form, Centipede grass has set the standard for low maintenance lawn grasses since the early 1950’s. This medium green, medium width leaved turf grass is commonly used in home lawns, commercial landscapes and road sides in the Southern U.S. and in warm climates around the world.
