We are closed Sunday Sept 6-Monday 7th for LABOR DAY PLEASE CHECK OUR FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM FOR WEATHER CLOSINGS,
DUE TO THE EXTREME HEAT, SOD MUST BE LAID WITHIN 12 HOURS OF PICKUP. SOD CAN HEAT RAPIDLY CAUSING DAMAGE TO THE SOD.
ALSO, REMEMBER TO WATER YOUR PLANTS DEEPLY IN THE MORNING. IF THEY HAPPEN TO WILT IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY, IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN IT NEEDS MORE WATER! WAIT UNTIL THE SUN GOES DOWN AND RECHECK. IF THE PLANT PERKS UP ON ITS OWN, IT HAS ADEQUATE WATER. IF IT IS STILL WILTED, CHECK THE GROUND FOR SATURATION, AND PLANTING DEPTH (MAKE SURE ITS NOT PLANTED TOO DEEPLY). IF IT FEELS DRY, YOU MAY NEED TO WATER MORE OFTEN, IF WET AND STILL WILTS IN THE EVENING YOU ARE GIVING TOO MUCH WATER.
Problem with your sod??? This is what is happening now!! Sod Web Worms!! Sod Webworms. Destroying yards right now. They are first a flying moth (small white) that lands and lays hundreds of eggs every day. Then 7-14 days later (depending on temps) you can have hundreds of thousands hatching and eating blades of grass every day. They centralize and then spread out from there and start the whole process over....really troublesome insect. I would definitely treat all the surrounding areas. Use Bio Advanced Complete Insect Killer. treat every 9-14 days through the end of September. We had a mild winter this past season so they are flying around and are out in Full Force right now. I usually follow up with a Systemic Fungicide as fungus is also active right now, and when sod is weakened it is more susceptible to developing. Usually the grass comes back after about 10-14 days as the damage is to the blades of the grass not the root system. Good thing is that it usually can repair within a couple of weeks. Hope that helps...sorry really nasty insect. Look for army worms as well...looks like little tiny ant mounds. If you see those add Seven Insecticide and double whammy them.
