FERTILIZING

We recommend that you fertilize with a balanced fertilizer for the first few years. A balanced fertilizer is one with equal amounts of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and pot ash (K), (15-15-15). We recommend three applications of fertilizer be put on during the year, one in the spring and two in the fall. The reason we recommend a balanced fertilizer is to build pot ash and phosphorus levels in your soil for root growth while insuring adequate "green" top growth with nitrogen. The rate of fertilizer that we recommend is about one fifty pound bag per 8,000-10,000 sq. ft. per application. The spring application should be in mid-May and should consist of some type of slow release nitrogen to carry on into the summer. Do not fertilize in the hot part of summer. The next fertilizer should be in mid-September, this will stimulate root growth and help develop a thicker lawn. The last fertilizing should be in mid-November, this is when your grass is storing nutrients for winter; by fertilizing at this time your lawn will be more winter hearty and will green up quicker in the spring without excessive top growth. We normally stock a balanced fertilizer and can deliver upon request.

WATERING

The initial watering of your new lawn is the most critical of all. It should begin as soon as possible. All areas should be moistened first, to prevent any drying or stress. A deep watering of 1 or more inches should immediately follow. The soil below the sod should be saturated at least 3 inches deep, after this you need to water daily, (or more often) at a lighter rate, keeping sod moist until it is firmly rooted (approximately 3 weeks). After this time, less frequent watering should begin. If the sod is allowed to dry out on the initial watering, it may become stressed. Stressed sod will turn brown temporarily. Continue to water these areas. After ten days, the grass will start to green backup and should fully recover within 21 days.
