Weekly Helpful Hints

Tip of the Week (4/25): Cool-season grass seed cannot be sown now before September, but turf may be laid with adequate preparation. Ideally, the soil should contain some organic amendment and be cultivated to a depth of four inches first. Rake smooth and fill in low spots. After laying the sod, soak it thoroughly. Water daily for at least two weeks during the critical initial root growth, and then give the sod one inch of water per week.
