Preparing Your Lawn for Palmetto St. Augustine Sod
St. Augustine Palmetto is a relatively low-maintenance and affordable type of sod. As such, it is an excellent option for your next landscaping project. Opting for our high-quality Palmetto St. Augustine Sod in Georgia can transform your weak, dead grass into a lush, green lawn.
Once you have purchased your sod, we recommend a few preparatory measures to ensure a smooth installation. Taking the time to prepare your soil before laying your sod ensures it will grow evenly and healthily.
To begin with, it is essential to remove any debris from your soil, such as stones and weeds. Following this, you can start to turn and loosen the ground using a mechanized tiller. This process adds air to the soil and allows the roots of the sod to grow freely and take in the nutrients they need to grow.
Before laying down your soil, we recommend adding a starter fertilizer, followed by a 4-inch layer of compost. Once the compost has been added, the final step is to till the fertilizer and compost to blend them thoroughly. This ensures that your new Palmetto sod grows thick and evenly across the whole lawn.

Proper lawn maintenance techniques are essential to avoiding growth issues and weed invasions. Regularly fertilizing your lawn preserves the health of your lawn and reduces vulnerability to insects, disease and weather.
Before fertilizing your lawn, we recommend performing a soil test, which will tell you key information about the health of your soil — including the pH and nutrient levels. Once you have your soil test results, you will be able to determine the best fertilizer to match the nutrients your lawn requires.
