How to Treat Your Sod

Know anyone who's interested in building a home? If you have any friends, family, or co-workers who are looking to own their first or second home - would you forward this message to them? We'll be happy to show them our 6 new construction home plans along with the benefits of owning a Charleston Home so they can make a decision that's right for them.

Welcome back, everyone. Today we are going to talk about how to treat your recently installed sod. If you are living in a new home or a home with new sod, you probably got it put in last fall or winter. With the weather getting better and the ground unfrozen, people are going to start watering their yards. 

While the grass has some roots, it probably hasn't fully taken hold yet and the roots aren't fully into the ground. To do this, you'll need to do some watering. But be careful that you don't leave your sprinkler on when the temperature dips below freezing. 

One more thing you can do with your new sod is apply a light layer of starter fertilizer to get the grass going. 

One thing you definitely don't want to do is put any kind of weed killer on your sod if it's not rooted yet, because that can hamper its growth. 

If you have any questions about protecting your sod, or anything else real estate related, give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to help out.
