Maintaining Sod

Key points about our 3-D Sod
Darker: 3-D Sod has been specially designed to yield a naturally darker turf. Simply put, this means less fertilizing! You’ll be able to have the same rich green lawn you expect without the use of costly and sometimes harmful chemicals.

Denser: Aside from the aesthetic beauty of a thick lawn the new 3-D Sod’s improved density will help compete with weeds by actually squeezing them out! Plus, 3-D Sod will green-up quick in the spring giving you the first green lawn on the block.

Dwarfer: Our 3-D Sod provides less vertical growth and a lower canopy height. It’s an attribute with a benefit that is terribly simple to understand... less mowing! Stop spending all weekend working on your lawn rather than just enjoying it.

Sod & Grass Maintenance Tips

Your new sod lawn increases your property value significantly. With proper care, it will remain a great asset, providing beauty, a clean activity surface, and an improved environment.


  • Begin mowing as required. For both mature and newly established lawns avoid mowing more than 1/3 of the blade length per mow.
  • Keep your mower blade sharp. You want to cut the grass, not tear it with a dull blade.

Once Established - Within the first 3-6 months after installation.

  • Reduce your watering times and set your irrigation for a maintenance setting.
  • Do a deep core aeration to further enhance root development.
  • Begin your regularly scheduled fertility program. With the 3-D sod we use, fertilization moderation is key!

Long term maintenance

  • Fertilize 4 times a year.
  • Water during dry periods, turn off watering if there is enough rain. Do not over-water the lawn.
  • Consider underground irrigation if possible.
