Preparing the soil before you lay the sod is an extremely important step. You want the soil to be healthy, the roots to integrate well, and the ground to be level. Here are a few tips to remember about preparing the soil before you start laying the sod:
- Tilling or laying topsoil - To properly prepare the soil before laying sod, you need to start by either tilling the soil or putting down a layer of topsoil. You may want to use a power tiller if you have a large area of land.
- Soil testing - You can take a sample of soil and send it into your County Extension Service to determine if conditions are right for laying sod in Atlanta.
- Get rid of weeds and remaining grass - Make sure there aren't any leaves, weeds, or grass left when preparing your soil to lay sod.
We have a video on our website that teaches you how to properly lay sod. These tips are just a few things to remember before you get started. If you have any questions, we can help you to answer them.
Maintaining Atlanta sod is not incredibly difficult, but does require a lot of watering. The most difficulty probably lies in laying the sod, but even then, sod is not hard to deal with. This is why a lot of people and landscape companies choose to lay sod in Atlanta. There are a few ways to make sure your sod doesn’t die after it is laid:
- Water - Water your sod; Atlanta is a warmer climate, so it’s important to make sure your so is watered properly. Watering should be done in the morning rather than the night. If you water your Atlanta sod at night it may stay damp and fungus could begin to grow. Sprinklers can be very useful, because the sod will need a lot of water in the first month or so that it has been laying in your yard.
- Mowing - Be careful mowing; if you cut the grass too short, the sod might die. In addition, you need to let the grass grow out to about five inches before you can mow for the first time. You can tell if your sod is dying if it begins to turn a yellow color. If you let it go too long, you may need to replace sections of sod.
- Soil - You should also put potting soil in between the gaps when you lay the sod so that the edges of the sod don’t die and turn brown.
- Traffic - Make sure that your yard has minimal traffic for at least two weeks after you lay your sod in Atlanta. This gives the roots proper time to begin to grow into the soil of your lawn.
