Being a homeowner you may realize that you will have a love-hate relationship with your lawn. When you are ready to start from scratch and get a beautiful lawn, sodding may be the right choice for you. Seeding is another choice but can have less than desired results and you will need patience. Both will take a few months to establish a sound root structure but the sod roots will develop faster. You will be able to lay the sod yourself but a team of two will get the job done twice as fast.

There is not a whole lot to laying the sod. We recommended you begin by a straight edge such as a driveway edge. Line up the next piece of sod right up next to the first piece, keep them in straight rows, end to end. When you begin on the next row offset the seams. You will have to cut some of the strips to maintain the alignment, a large knife works well for this. If you are installing on a steep hill you can insert pegs into the sod pieces to keep them in place until the roots have time to develop.

Installing a new lawn for many can be a back breaking task and many questions arise when looking out onto your yard area to see an empty plot or an overgrow lawn area that has been neglected to the point of no return. This article will attempt to answer some of the many questions I have answered from homeowners about installing a new lawn from sod.

Rebel Supreme Fescue is a fall sod in Georgia that loves the cooler climate and is best laid in the fall days, usually towards the end October each year. Laying this fescue during the later Atlanta fall months provides the Fescue sufficient time to establish deep roots and good connectivity before the onset of next summer. The more established the fescue roots are, the more drought tolerant and lush the sod will become.

Rebel Supreme Fescue is a sod with coarse, dark-colored green blades. It is a premium fall fescue sod varieties that suit both sun and shade as it has a higher level of drought and brown patch resistance. Due to its ability to retain color well, this fescue variety is the preferred fescue sod for Atlanta residential and commercial landscapes alike.

While the temperatures are cooling, now is the best time to get your Atlanta fall Fescue sod established in your landscape. Allow your local sod farm to help you determine how many square feet you will need to complete your DIY sod installation project in Atlanta. Delivery options are usually available or sometimes you can pick up your Fescue Sod yourself from the local sod farm. Usually, the best sod farms are just a short drive outside of metro Atlanta.
