Sod for Southern Indiana

In Southern Indiana, new lawns are established by sod or seed. Sod is often faster and more reliable than seed, which requires more time and care to establish. If you have an immediate need to reduce erosion, prepare for an upcoming outdoor event, reduce mud being tracked in to your new home, sod from Uhl Turf is your best choice. You will also be able to establish sod during times when seeding conditions are not ideal.

Fescue and Bluegrass sod are popular in Southern Indiana. With over 50 years of experience with sod in Southern Indiana, Uhl Turf has developed special blends ideal for your conditions.

Ready for Sod?

Here's a few steps to get you started.

1. Determine the Area - How to Measure Your Lawn

Your lawn can be divided into several shapes. Measure in feet and then calculate the area of each shape. Add them all together for the total area. This will give you the total square footage needed. We sell sod by the square yard, so either divide your total square footage by 9 or be sure to tell us the number you are giving is square feet and we'll do the math for you. It's a good rule of thumb to add 10% to your total. This allows for trimming around irregular areas and for slight measuring errors.

2. Prepare the Area

Clear the area of debris. Rocks, construction scrap, sticks and metal should be removed prior to installing sod. If you wouldn't want these items under your indoor carpet, you won't want them under your sod either.

The area should be graded to provide a smooth, firm surface. Make adjustments to prevent areas where water might pool. If you need to have your lawn professionally graded, give us a call and we will recommendsomeone for you.

If your are completely replacing a lawn or have new construction and are planning an irrigation system it should be in place prior to sodding.These systems are installed after the rough grade is complete.

3. Install Your Sod

Start installing sod immediately after Uhl Turf delivers it. Place the first roll of sod along a straight edge, or if there are only curves, place the first roll at a right angle to the curve. Butt the end of the next roll tightly against the first (don't overlap), and you are on your way. When starting your next row stagger the joints. A sharp knife can be used to cut irregular shapes and to cut around sprinkler heads.

Once a large area is sodded water it. Continue to lay sod, and water sections until the lawn is complete.

4. Water, Water, Water

Once the entire area is sodded water your sod thoroughly. Sod in Southern Indiana will need to be kept moist by watering daily until the sod becomes well rooted. After about two weeks, try to life a corner of your sod. After your lawn is established, you will be able to decrease the frequency of watering, but increase the amount of water per application.

5. Time to Mow

Mow high the first few times. Keep your mower blades sharp. As a general rule of thumb, don't mow more than a 1/3 of the height of your grass.
