Establishing Fescue Sod
Our temperate Georgia climate makes establishing fall fescue simple. Newly installed turfgrass requires frequent watering, initial fertilization, and limited foot traffic to allow its roots to anchor into the soil. If you prepare your lawn for new fescue sod, your grass will require less upkeep in the early weeks after installation. After installing your turf, water your lawn daily for several weeks. Apply a starter fertilizer, but take care not to over-fertilize. Once your turf is hearty enough to withstand mowing (usually several weeks after installation), you can leave grass clippings on your lawn as a natural fertilizer.
Maintaining Fescue Grass
Fescue grass requires less watering, mowing, and fertilizing than warm-season grasses. Well-maintained fescue will give you a lush, healthy landscape year-round. Fertilize your fescue lawn in the fall and supplement rainfall with good irrigation. Keep your mower blade sharp to prevent tearing of your turfgrass, and set your cutting height to 2-3 inches. Raise the height of the blade during times of drought or extreme temperature change to avoid stressing your grass. Aeration and seeding in the fall prevents thatch buildup in your grass and allows fescue to thrive during its peak growing season.
