Mowing

  • It's best to mow about 10 to 14 days after your sod was installed.
  • If you wait too long you could scalp the grass, the grass isn't damaged, it will grow back.
  • Never mow when the grass is wet.
  • We recommend never mowing more than 1/3 of the leaf blades.
  • A reel mower is used on the finer bladed grasses, such as the Tifgreen 328 to give your grass a "putting green" look.  However, the reel mower can be used on the other grasses as well, it will produce a more uniform, even cut.
  • A rotary mower works great on the Midiron Sod, but can also be used on the TIfway 419, Santa Ana or Tifgrand if the blades are kept sharp, otherwise it can "tear" the grass.
