Fertilizing

We recommed fertilzing the soil prior to laying your sod with a 20 Pound Bag (21-7-14) of Lawn Feed Fertilizer you can purchase at your local Big Box Retailer. We recommend fertilizing at a rate of 10 pounds per 1000 square feet. We recommend fertilizing before you install your sod..

In the summer you should fertilize every 6 to 8 weeks and during the winter months you should fertilize every 8 to 10 weeks.

Keep in mind that you can "burn" the grass, if you put too much fertilizer on your lawn and/or don't deep soak area right after you fertilize. You need to soak for at least 15 minutes, 3 times a day, at 7 am, 11 am and 3 pm.

Don't ever put any weed/feed killer on your grass at any time, it will only kill your grass along with the weeds.

Some of the products available at big box retailers, state that they won't kill the grass. However, in our unique desert climate, and grasses that we sell, they're totally different than the grasses in other parts of the country.

If you're grass is kept healthy and strong, it literally "chokes" out the weeds.
