Lawn Care

How late in the year can I install sod?
You can install  sod until the ground has frozen.

How do I know how much sod I need?
Measure the square area (in feet) of where you would like to apply turfgrass sod.

How much water does my lawn need a week?
When first installed, your new lawn will require watering every day for the first 4 days; 3 times during the second week. Starting in the third week, reduce irrigation to 25 millimeters (mm) or 1-inch of water a week during the summer, including rain, to encourage deep, healthy rooting.

Tip: One litre of water in the first hour of installation does more than 6 litres 3 hours later.

When should I begin mowing my new lawn?
Generally, newly sodded lawns need mowing after 6 or 7 days. Take special care on slopes; make sure the mower wheels do not disturb the new turfgrass; and keep the mower blades sharp.

How often should I mow my lawn?
Never remove more than 3 cm of the leaf height at once. Don't let the grass grow so tall that it falls over, and remember to keep your mower blades sharp. Dull blades leave ragged brown tips.

How short should I mow my lawn?
We recommend mowing Bluegrass and Fescue at a height of 4 cm.

Tip: When setting the height of your mower blade, place it on a flat, even surface, such as a driveway or side-walk.

How much fertilizer does my lawn need?
The quantity of fertilizer needed depends on the soil fertility, the type of grass and how much growth you want. To find out which fertilizer is best for your lawn, contact your local home garden center.

What is thatch?
Thatch is an accumulation of old leaves, clippings, stems, roots and other organic material that has failed to decay. It prevents water and fertilizer from percolating into the root zone.

How do I remove thatch from my home lawn?
Vigorous raking removes thatch. If you are not up to raking, you can rent a vertical mower or hire a lawn specialist to remove the thatch build-up. Vertical mowers have blades that cut out thatch and thin matted growth.

How do you relieve compacted turf?
Core aeration relieves soil compaction by removing small cores of turf and soil to open up or "aerate" the lawn. You can rent an aerator at your local equipment rental shop, or ask a landscape professional to do the job. Aeration is usually done in the spring once the lawn is dry enough to work.

How do I identify an insect problem with my home lawn?
The sooner you detect and identify insect pests, the better your chance of success.

 

For Contractors

What are the dimensions of your big roll?
The typical dimensions are 42" wide by 103' long - this translates to 360 ft2 per big roll. However, roll-size varies slightly between each of our 5 production locations. Once you know how much sod you require, the production center will cut the desired number of rolls to meet your order.

I'm a contractor. Can I install big roll by myself?
As long as you have a 3-point hitch assembly and adequate heavy equipment to lift a 1600 lb roll, you can install on your own. However we have equipment specifically designed to lift and install big rolls much more efficiently.

How long will freshly cut sod keep on the job site?
Fresh sod is a highly perishable product. The warmer the outside temperature, the less time you have to leave sod idle. During the hottest months of the year you may have only 2-4 hours before the core temperature of the sod and the outside temperature combine to cause heat damage to the sod. We recommend installation during the cooler times of the day and evenings. Once laid, the sod will need an immediate soaking to cool the turf and initiate root penetration.

What's better: big roll or small roll?
Each size has its advantages. Some contractors prefer big roll as one roll will cover 360 ft2 at a time. The reduction in seams is an advantage for big roll as well. Big roll does require specialized equipment, but for larger areas is a much more cost efficient process.

The small roll is the most versatile (i.e. tight spaces), but installation may take considerably longer.
