Preparing the ground before sod delivery:

 • Dig up old grass, rake smooth, lime and fertilize with high nitrogen fertilizer (16-8-8 or 15-6-8)

 • Put about 30 lbs of lime (pulverized limestone) to each 1000 sq ft and 10 lbs of fertilizer to each 1,000 sq ft.

 • Mow at least 3 times before delivery and use grub control (spring time)

 • After planted use Scott's 4 Step

 • Mow high for about 2 or 3 weeks or when you can't pull up the sod. 

 • Water in the morning: to see how much, put container down when you get  3/4 inch of water that's enough.  Water in about 2 to 3 days.  

 • Spray for grubs:  September and April with Merit or Grub-X (Scott's) 6.2% Dylox...Crabgrass...Balan Pre- Emergent.  Dursban - September and April Grubs. Fertilize 10-6.4 September
