Grass Sod Maintenance in Edmonton

In order to keep your new grass sod in Edmonton green and healthy, we at Sturgeon Valley Sod, provide you with some helpful tips and suggestions. It’s important to follow these steps once your grass sod has been installed in Edmonton, this way you will ensure it's growing at a healthy pace from the start.

Using a sharp mower, cut your lawn to the height you prefer, but be careful to cut off no more than 1 quarter of the leaf. This may require 2 or 3 mows per week during rapid growing seasons.

It is preferable to water once a week, or as required, to maintain soil moisture and grass development rather than frequent shallow watering. A straight-edged container placed on your lawn during water will indicate the amount of water applied. The amount of water required will depend on temperature, soil texture and grass development at the time.

Your lawn should be fertilized about 3 times per year to supplement available plant nutrition and to promote healthy growth. For more information about fertilizer types and how to apply them, click here.

Eliminate Weeds for Healthy Grass Sod in Edmonton

To control weeds, disease or insect infestation, follow the manufacturer's recommendation if you are using spray. Caution should always be used with any spray. Consult with a local supplier, Department of Agriculture or properly qualified and licensed applicator. Relatively new formulations of fertilizer, fungicides or herbicides are easy and safe to use, given a reasonable control program. If a serious problem occurs, obtain assistance as soon as possible to avoid permanent damage.

A program of aeration, liming, top dressing for overseeding annually may be advisable to ensure healthy, vigorous, and continued growth, especially in problem areas. The appearance and aesthetic pleasure of your lawn will reflect the care you provide for it.
