5 Steps for a Successful
If you’d like to install your Hawaiian Turfgrass lawn yourself, here are the five steps to follow for a successful lawn installation.
Step 1: Remove Old Lawn & Weeds
Use an herbicide to kill off the old lawn and weeds. Follow all label instructions.
Step 2 Till the Area
Rake and remove all dead plant material, including the roots of the old grass. Loosen and till the soil. Rake it until it’s a level surface.
Step 3 Add Compost
Add 1-inch of high-quality compost as a soil amendment. This creates a healthy soil surface with lots of nutrients for the roots of your new sod to grow. Spread it out evenly.
4: Level the Area
Use a roller to compact the compost. Create a level surface to install the sod.
Step 5: Install the Sod
Place the sod pieces on top of the compost in a checkerboard pattern. Push the seams together to close all gaps. Use a roller to help the sod make contact with the soil. Water it in to encourage the roots to tack down. Water two-to-three times per day for up to three weeks, then back off to your regular watering schedule.
