After an extended transition period this year, it seem as though we have finally reached good growing weather. For centipede turfgrass roots to fully activate, the ground temperature needs to be a sustained 64 degrees. With temperatures in the 40's overnight over the last few weeks, we simply did not achieve that. This is the reason for the long waiting list and the extended wait time for deliveries. With that said, if you have recently purchased sod or moved into a new construction home over the winter, now is the time to begin a watering routine every day for a minimum of the next 14 days. Make sure to water deeply. You want to make sure when you pull back a corner of your new grass, it is getting wet underneath. We do not recommend fertilizer on NEW sod purchased from us at this time.
