Sod Production: A Look at How We Produce Our Sod

Sod Production: A Look at How We Produce Our Sod

Right now, let’s take a closer look at our sod production process.

Here at Quantico Creek Sod Farms, we are proud to produce sod for both commercial and residential clients. Our blends are different depending on the year, but for the most part, our three main specialties are Kentucky bluegrass, Tall Fescue, and various warm-season grasses. We strive to give all of our clients the best product we can. Right now, let’s take a closer look at our sod production process. 

Consistent High-Quality

When you choose sod from Quantico Creek, you can rest easy knowing that we emphasize consistent high-quality. It is the goal of our sod production and thanks to our efficient and detailed process, we can achieve that goal. We rely on high-tech machinery that accelerates our sod production rate while boosting the overall quality of the soil that we depend on. Seeding and fertilization are the building blocks of premium sod, and our team makes it their purpose to ensure that sod delivery brings you the sod at the peak of its quality. We deliver sod the same day that it is harvested; this way, our customers get the best of the best, no matter what. All orders are custom-made for each client, and nothing is too challenging – big or small, bring us your concerns. We will do everything we can to support your sod needs.     

Seeding Stage 

With that in mind, let’s switch gears to our seeding stage. As we said before, we begin at this stage and take it extremely seriously. Our fields are double-planted with an exact seed count. For instance, the Tall Fescue is planted with 375 pounds of seed in each acre, while for the Kentucky Bluegrass we use 100 pounds per acre instead. Maintenance is also carried out at this stage. Without it, the sod won’t grow properly. We mow the sod every two to three days and ensure that the height is kept to about 2 inches high.  

Fertilization Stage 

The fertilization phase is just as important. One pound of fertilizer is the key to our success; it is spread out every thousand square feet. This is done every month during the growth period but the particular product differs depending on the type of sod we are cultivating. Tall Fescue grasses require ammonium sulfate while Kentucky Bluegrass needs ammonium nitrate. 

Spraying Stage  

The final part of our sod production program calls for spraying. We use both fungicides and insecticides to help protect our fields whenever it becomes necessary. This way, we can prevent common diseases like Brown Patch, Grey Leaf Spot, and Pythium. All of this work helps ensure that we can provide you with the highest quality sod that you expect.
