Fertilization Schedule

We recommend Floratam Sod be fertilized 30 days after installation.  Floratam Sod should be fertilized when needed or 3 to 4 times a year.  A balanced fertilizer works best.  Examples are 6-0-6 or 10-0-10.  Bahia Sod should be fertilized once a year in the spring.  Fertilizing your new lawn or sod, as needed, is important.

Mowing Schedule

Two weeks after installation Floratam, Bahia, Seville and Zoysia Sod may be mowed.  Always have mower set to 3-4" height for Floratam, Bahia and Seville.  Mowing height for Zoysia may be from 1/2" to 2".  Maintaining the proper mowing height for your type of new lawn or sod is important.

Water Schedule


New Lawns should be given water every day for one week. Thereafter, water when needed.  Water one to three times a week, depending on weather conditions. Watering your new lawn or sod is very important.

Insects


Spray with Triazicide, Talstar, Arena or Crosscheck for Chinch Bugs in Floratam.  Spray with Triazicide for Mole Crickets in Bahia Sod.  Spray one week after installation. Thereafter, spray every other month, six times a year. Spraying your new lawn or sod correctly is important.

Fungus


Spray Floratam with Daconil or T'Storm two weeks after installation.  Thereafter, spray every other month.  Spray during the wet season.  Following this schedule for this type of new lawn or sod is important.

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!"
