About the Project
About the Grass
The landscaping crew installed 37 mega rolls of certified TifTuf Bermuda sod, which offers a brighter green color than other Bermuda varieties. The premium grass provides superior drought resistance, and maintains quality and color while using 38% less water than other Bermuda varieties.
TifTuf’s growth allows for faster establishment and quicker recovery compared to other Bermudas. It features an attractive bright green color with faster spring green-up and late fall color retention.

New Grass Tips
Although new sod becomes established after two to three weeks when the roots begin to take hold, full maturity won’t happen until an entire year passes. Follow these tips for the first year to ensure the success of a new lawn.
New grass needs more water than mature grass. Water once or twice a day, depending on weather conditions for the first couple weeks, even if the grass variety is drought resistant.
Once the grass is established, water half an inch twice per week, but keep an eye on it. If your grass looks stressed with curling leaves or lighter color, give it extra water. If a week is particularly dry, hot or windy, watering three or four times per week rather than twice may be in order during a lawn’s first year.

Wait to Fertilize
It may be tempting to feed your new lawn, but fertilizing too soon can burn new shoots and tender roots. We suggest blending a fertilizer into the soil prior to installation. Otherwise, wait to fertilize for a full year to allow the grass to reach maturity.
