Soil and Fertilizer:
Prefers neutral to alkaline soil – fertilize twice a year, spring and fall, with complete fertilizer (10-10-10). Use 10 pounds per 1,000 feet on each application. Apply three additional applications of nitrogen only during the summer months at a rate of 1 pound of nitrogen per 1,000 feet. (This will be around 5 pounds of the actual fertilizer.)
During sod establishment, water every day so that the soil is soaked 3-4 inches deep. Do not allow to wilt. An additional watering might be needed. The primary watering should be done between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Established sod should be watered every day during the hot months and about every 4-7 days during cooler months.
Mow 5-7 days at 1.5 to 2.5 inches.
Use Daconil to prevent disease on monthly basis.
