Seeding and Maintenance
The first stage of the production process is the seeding. We double plant our fields with the proper amount of seeds. The Tall Fescue field is planted with 375 lbs of seed per acre, while the Kentucky Bluegrass area is planted with 100 pounds of seeds per acre.
Sod maintenance is crucial for growth. To promote a healthy harvest, we mow our sod every two or three days. Sod height is kept at approximately 2 inches high.
One pound of fertilizer is applied to the sod per every one thousand square feet. During the grow-in period, fertilization is conducted monthly. The specific fertilizer used is dependent on the sod type. For example, our team uses ammonium sulfate to fertilize Tall Fescue grasses, and ammonium nitrate to fertilize Kentucky Bluegrass.
To protect our sod quality, we spray our fields with fungicides and insecticides as needed. Fungicide application strengthens the sod and prevents common diseases such as Brown Patch, Grey Leaf Spot and Pythium. We also use herbicides as needed. Sod health is an utmost priority for our team, and we employ all weapons in our arsenal to combat damage to our fields.
Sod is available for convenient pick-up at our sod farm or next day delivery to your doorstep. For more information about residential and commercial sod from Quantico Creek Sod Farms, please explore our FAQ’s or contact us for a sod quote!
