2017 has gotten off to a great start for Sacramento, and especially our yards! We’ve been able to make plenty of sod deliveries and wanted to help get out information about making the most of your sod delivery if you can’t plant it right away. Here are four tips to keep your sod healthy.
- The team at Bell Sod will do our best to place the sod out of direct sunlight, but if we aren’t able to access such an area, make sure to get your sod out of the sun as soon as possible.
- If the day is particularly hot and it still hasn’t been laid, spray down your sod with water to keep it happy.
- When you do lay down your sod, make sure to remove all rocks and roll your yard so the sod can take root quickly.
- Don’t wait too long to lay down your sod. There isn’t an exact number, but the quicker the better!
If your yard has a difficult layout – curved walkways, gardens, porches, garden gnomes, laying sod can be a challenge. Don’t hesitate to ask our experts about best tricks and tactics to get around these obstacles for the highest success rate in laying your sod. A few quick pointers include – smoothing any bumps and making sure there are no gaps between the sod pieces.
Laying down new sod can transform your yard into a place you’ll enjoy pulling into at the end of the day. If you have any more questions about sod don’t hesitate to call our team at (916) 331-2040.
