Lawn Maintenance

Mowing

Mow Floratam and Bahia Grasses at a height of 3-4 inches. Zoysia may be mowed up to 2".  Don't scalp the lawn! Mowing at this height promotes a healthy and thick lawn. Keep mower blades sharpened in order not to tear the grass blades.  It is not necessary to bag your clippings on this new lawn or sod.

Watering

Once a lawn is established you can water once a week.  A good indicator that a lawn requires water is that the grass blades are curling.  With an automatic sprinkler system, the small spray heads should operate 15 to 20 minutes. Large rotating heads should operate 40-60 minutes on a new lawn or sod.

Weeds


Keeping grass thick and healthy helps to keep weeds out of Floratam, Bahia, Seville and Zoysia sod.  For weed control use Atrazine for dollars weeds and clover on a new lawn or sod.

Insect Control

Control of insects promotes a healthy lawn.   Triazicide or Talstar may be used for Chinch Bug control.  Triazicide may also be used for Mole Crickets in Bahia grass.  You may also call a professional pest control company for advice on your new lawn or sod.

Fertilization


Fertilize Floratam Sod 3-4 times a year with a balanced fertilizer 6-0-6 or 10-0-10.  On Bahia Sod fertilize once a year preferably in the spring with a balanced fertilizer 6-0-6 or 10-0-10.  It's good to fertilize your new lawn or sod as recommended.

Testimonials

"I have been retired for 11 years in Florida and have used numerous service companies for all my home improvement needs. Maloney's Sod, by far, was the best company that has worked at our home. The initial call was very professional. Service was prompt. The crew that installed the fresh, beautiful sod was hard working and conscientious. It was a great experience!"
