CARE

Congratulations on your new Sod Pods! Click on your preferred variety below for helpful tips.

Bermuda

Light

Bermuda performs best in full sun but is more tolerable to shade than other varieties.

Mow

Obtain a stunning look comparable to your favorite fairways and sports fields at a low mowing height, .5"-1.5".

Water

Water thoroughly immediately after planting. Keeping the soil moist is the key to Sod Pod success, we recommend at least 6" to 8" deep. Continue watering every day for 10-20 days until the pods are rooted. Once runners appear, decrease watering to one inch, twice per week. Adjust watering with rainfall amount.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

  • Fungicide: Apply if needed. You may benefit from it if the Bermuda is in the shade or has had trouble with disease in the past. First application should be 24 - 48 hours after first watering.
  • Insecticide: Apply if needed, follow label directions. Treat with broad spectrum insecticide if needed.
  • Preemergent Herbicide: Stop weeds from popping up by applying a preemergent herbicide. Follow label directions and wear proper protection equipment. Create a consistent blanket application.
  • Fertilize: Give your Sod Pods a boost with fertilizer, follow label directions.
