Why Now Is the Best Time for Spring Plantings

Planting new sod needs to be done properly if you want to have a healthy, flourishing lawn. That means you need to make sure that you are planting sod at the best time of year. Although you can plant sod anytime of the year in Florida, spring is best. Here’s what you need to know.

Spring Growth

Spring is the time of year that grass grows the most in Florida. Planting sod during this time means that the sod will be able to form deep, healthy roots quickly so that your lawn looks its best. The grass will grow quickly once the root system is established, which will lead to lush, green grass for your family to enjoy.

Types of Grass for Spring

There are several types of sod that are great for planting in the spring. These include:

  • St. Augustine
  • Bermuda grass
  • Centipede grass
  • Bahia grass

When you contact us for fresh sod, we will help you determine the best sod for your spring planting, based on your lawn’s ecosystem, how much lawn maintenance you have time and inclination for, and watering needs. 

Plant Sod Right Away

It is best to have sod planted on the same day that you receive it. Planting sod right away will help make sure that the grass and roots are healthy so that they will take root in the soil. You should also keep the sod moist throughout the installation. If you have never laid sod before and are unsure of the proper method of installation it is best to get professional assistance.
