Get A Beautiful Lawn Overnight
The installation of sod is a popular way to establish a new lawn. Most of the sod installed in Georgia is Bermuda or Zoysia. When installed correctly on properly amended soil, in the appropriate sunlight conditions and where correct maintenance is provided, a sod lawn can be a valuable part of your landscape.
Bermuda grass is a warm season grass that has fine to medium leaf texture. It is dark green, dense and low growing via rhizomes and stolons. The root system is extensive and very deep. It is best adapted to hot, dry or tropical climates. Bermuda is recommended for residential and commercial landscapes, golf courses, sports fields, parks and recreation areas. It is an ideal sod for homes with children and pets. Bermuda has excellent heat tolerance – up to 110 Fahrenheit, and performs best during periods of heat. It has a winter dormancy period and turns tan to brown at temperatures below 55 Fahrenheit. It is highly drought resistant, but also responds to irrigation in dry periods. It can go into summer dormancy when irrigation is withheld, but upon return of moisture supply, it will green up again. Bermuda requires full sun for most of the day to grow properly and should not be used in a shady site. Bermuda is a great choice for yards with full sunlight and heavy traffic.
