Installing your own Batavia Turf? Great! You’ll need to know how much sod to order and how to prepare your site.
Sunlight: All turf grass requires 2-3 hours of sunlight daily.

Finished grade should be approximately ¾” below hardscaped areas.

Sod is a perishable product and must be unrolled within 12 hours after delivery.
Begin installing the sod at the furthest point and work your way out. Place full rolls of sod along the outside edges to act as a border and install any smaller pieces on the inside. Lay all sod as tightly as possible but do not overlap.
Water sod lightly as you install in warm weather to prevent drying out. Upon completion, water all sod thoroughly.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR SOD…
Just follow these 3 simple steps and you and your new sod should be good to go. Of course, if you have any questions, just give us a call.
Water thoroughly (1” per day) for 14 days after installation.
You may mow your lawn 1 week after installation if needed, being careful not to disturb the turf.
Water as needed and fertilize again 30 days after installation.
