Once we have completed our contract with you, we ask that you keep an eye on some things:
We want your yard to be the best on the block. Even though you paid for a professional install, we still ask you to help us maximize the full potential of your yard. Please keep fertilizing all new plant material as advised by our crew. The first few months are critical for plant material.
Even if you have an irrigation system, we ask that you keep a close watch on your new turf. We have estimated the proper watering times for your new landscaping. If the temperature rises higher than we anticipated, you may need to apply more water to your yard. This could mean just a quick 15 minute burst until the temperature returns to normal. If you notice a dry spot in your irrigation system that we have missed, please water by hand until we can make it back for an adjustment. Also consider the wind as your enemy. High winds can suck the moisture from your yard very quickly, and cause the irrigation spray heads to perform incorrectly.
If you notice any pooling in your yard from heavy rain, please advise us. Keep in mind that a small amount of pooling is expectable over the short term. Even with good yard drainage, the soil could be so saturated from the rain, that it will not accept any more moisture. This will only be for the short term.
If your sod starts yellowing slightly, this is normal prior to new growth. A small amount of yellowing is normal for a couple of days. Once the sod has rotted, the new growth will come in bright green.
Over the long term do not forget to weed. Even with weed barrier fabric your planters are subject to some weed growth. Weeds will germinate on the top side of the fabric and start to grow. The amount of weeds that you may see will be minor, and will only require a small amount of your time.
Familiarize yourself with your new landscaping. If you see something out of the norm, please do not hesitate to call. Any issues that may come up, we want to be aware of them before it becomes a problem.
Do not walk on your new sod as instructed by our crew. You may have to watch your new sod grow at a distance for a couple of weeks.
The most important thing is ENJOY YOUR YARD.
