When to install sod
Sod can be installed at any time of year. As long as the area to be sodded can be prepared, sod can be laid.
Spring: The most popular time to install sod for homeowners and landscapers. Sod installed during the cool spring temperatures requires little irrigation during and after installation.
Summer: Sod installed during the summer months will require more water than other times of the year. Sod is a viable option because of the small success rates of summer seeding. A readily accessible water source is recommended for the first 3 weeks after installation.
Fall: Also a popular time for sod installation. Fall installations require only a fraction of the irrigation that summer installs do. Late fall projects greatly benefit from sod because the colder temperatures make it harder to grow grass from seed.
Winter: Many people do not realize that sod can be layed during the winter months. Sod installed during the winter months will root by spring time, this is a result of soil temperature and warm days. Sod does not require any watering over the winter.
