The most common Sod sold in New England, Bluegrass is a cool season sod that thrives in full sun, or mostly sunny areas. It does extremely well from the Midwest to the Northeast.
Tall Fescue is another cool season grass species that does well in sun, or sun with shade. It is tougher than Bluegrass & doesn't require as much water.
Often considered "sun & shade" this is a versatile mix of Bluegrass & Tall Fescue. It has the best of both worlds and is recommended for areas that get a mix of sun and shade.
Sod is alive. If you want to enjoy it's benefits in your yard you need to keep it that way. Sod is cut the morning of delivery, and palletized soon after it's cut. It's then delivered to you when merely hours before it was laying in a field. The sooner the sod is laid the better. You need to plan to lay the sod the same day as you receive it. Have all your prep work done prior to receiving the sod. Make sure the area is tilled, or the new topsoil is spread. If you are hiring help to lay it make sure they are scheduled before you order. If you are doing a particularly large area maybe plan for two deliveries so you aren't scrambling to get it all laid that day. Sod can survive beyond a day on a pallet, it's just not good for it. If for some reason you can't lay it that day, make sure you keep it wet and out of direct sun. Covering it with a tarp helps.
Once you lay the sod wet it as soon as it's down. You want to encourage the roots to begin growing again into the new soil. If it's a hot day you want to soak the sod as you go. Do not install the entire area over the course of hours then go back to wet the first area, you want to prevent it from drying out. If it's not a very hot day it's not crucial to do that. But installing sod in July or August requires special care to prevent the sod from dying. Spring is the ideal time to lay sod as the temperatures are cooler, and we receive frequent rain.
Sod ordering should be done in advance. Since we have to plan the deliveries we recommend giving us a week notice. Often we can deliver sooner but it is not guaranteed. Ordering sod isn't as simple as ordering mulch or other landscape supplies. It needs to be planned and preparation usually needs to be done ahead of time.
At CT Sod we take pride in getting you the best quality sod at great prices, with timely deliveries. We look forward to helping you with your next home or landscaping project.
