Question: When is the best time of the year to lay sod?
Top Answer (36% of 169 votes): Spring (early spring).

Answer: Summer (mid summer)
Explanation: I would recommend laying sod in mid summer to early fall. This would allow the roots to establish firmly in the ground. This requires ample water in the newly sodded area. Should be watered at least once a day, or twice a day in the beginning to establish a good root base.

Answer: Spring (mid spring)
Explanation: Sod can be installed year round if proper steps are taken to establish the root system. Homeowners can’t place sod atop any kind of soil and expect it to grow. The ground where the rolls will be place should be prepared before laying sod rolls. Remove all rocks and debris from the area, along with noxious weeds. Aerate the soil to ensure it is not compacted. Correct drainage problems by grading so that water to avoid puddling in low areas and to ensure that water moves away from areas such as sidewalks and driveways. Correct soil deficiencies and improper pH levels by adding appropriate amendments, such as nitrogen and trace minerals, to the topsoil, to encourage root growth.

Answer: Fall (early fall)
Explanation: Sod is a hefty investment, so it is critical to prepare the planting area and tend the turf with care. You can lay sod anytime during the growing season, although spring and early autumn are best, because cool temperatures combined with occasional rain help sod quickly root. If you lay sod in summer, water at least once a day for several weeks. Begin by preparing the soil. Remove twigs, stones, and other debris littering the surface. Break up soil clods that are larger than 2 inches in diameter. Fill low areas with good quality topsoil. If the soil is sandy or full of clay, work in organic matter. Take advantage of this opportunity to improve the soil; it's easy to add amendments when the soil is bare. Smooth the soil with a stiff garden rake. Finish preparing the area by compacting it slightly with a sod roller (often available through your local landscape equipment rental outlet). Lay sod on a cool, overcast day to minimize plant stress. If you lay sod in the heat of summer, moisten the surface of the planting area before putting down the turf. With the help of a few friends, you can get the sod down in a hurry and have fun along the way. Stagger strips in a bricklike pattern, and be sure that all pieces fit tightly together. A utility knife or sharp spade is handy for cutting sod to fit irregular areas. Once the sod is in place, run the sod roller over it to eliminate air pockets. Water it immediately, then water daily (depending on rainfall), moistening the soil to a depth of 4 inches, until the sod takes root (in 2,3 weeks). Avoid mowing sod until it has firmly rooted. To find out if sod has rooted, gently tug at it. If you feel resistance, roots are anchored in the underlying soil.

G&K Lawn Maintenance

Answer: Summer (late summer)
Explanation: Late summer is the best time to establish Kentucky bluegrass, creeping bentgrass, tall fescue, and perennial ryegrass from seed. Between August 15 and September 15 is optimum seeding time in the northern half of Indiana, from September 1 to September 30 is optimum in the southern half of Indiana. It is critical to seed as early as possible within these windows. You likely cannot seed too early and even when seeding within these windows, waiting one week later to seed may mean the stand will take two to four additional weeks to mature. The primary reason that late-summer seeding is preferred is that it maximizes the time for the grass to establish before it faces the heat and stress of next summer. Even though a late-summer seeding requires frequent irrigation, limited weed and disease pressure, warm soils, and moderating air temperatures encourage quick establishment.
