Bermudagrass (Cynodon spp.) is a major turf species for sports fields, lawns, parks, golf courses, and general utility turfs in Australia, Africa, India, South America and the Southern region of the United States. It is found in over 100 counties throughout the tropical and subtropical areas of the world.
The outlined steps below are proper care and maintenance checklists for each of the seasons.
Prior to and immediately after installation: Prepare soil and water thoroughly before sod is placed (additional info at www.sodsolutions.com.) It is essential that turf be watered thoroughly when installed. Soak upon installation and water as needed to keep new sod from drying out. Overwatering for an extended period, however, will severely damage the turf, inducing disease and rotting roots. It usually takes 7–10 days during the active growing season for the sod to establish, but may take longer during cooler weather. Proper rooting can be checked by lifting a corner of the new sod piece and noting if “white” roots have connected to the ground. Mow the new sod 7–10 days after installation.
SEASONAL MAINTENANCE CHECKLIST
- Have your soil Ph level tested every other year and add the necessary amendments.
- Always read and follow label instruction information before applying any chemical to your lawn.
- Following the final freeze of winter, drop your mower a notch and give your Celebration Bermudagrass a “buzz-cut.” Make sure to bag up all the material. This will get rid of the brown top layer and any old leaves. Then for the rest of spring and summer keep your Celebration lawn mowed between 1-2 inches. If you notice scalping/browning after mowing, you may need to mow more frequently.
- Apply fertilizer. A general recommendation would be to use a 1-0-1 ratio variety, like a 15-0-15. This promotes the overall health of the grass.
- If you have experienced weed issues in the past, apply pre-emergent herbicide.
- Don’t overwater. In the active growing season, Celebration needs about 1 inch of water per week, either from natural rainfall or irrigation. Too much water can cause fungus.
