Heat & Tolerance:

Blue Ridge Sports Turf is a cool season grass, looks its best in the cooler time of the year. Blue Ridge Sports Turf wear tolerance: it should be lightly over-seeded yearly after heavy usage to maintain its proper density, but recovers quickly from normal abuse.


Blue Ridge Sports Turf will moderately tolerate shade, preferring a sunnier location.


Blue Ridge Sports Turf will keep a deep, rich bluegreen color throughout the year, if properly fertilized. Its color and natural beauty is what sets it apart from other sod varieties.


Blue Ridge Sports Turf has a good resistance to most diseases due to the perennial ryegrass mix. During the cool months, rust would still be a concern. However, turf which is properly watered, mowed and fertilized is much less likely to be affected by disease.


A good complete fertilizer is required twice a year in the spring and fall. All others fertilizer applications may be made with straight Nitrogen. During the spring, fall and winter months you should be fertilizing every 4 to 6 weeks with 1 pound of actual nitrogen applied to each 1,000 sq. ft. of lawn. During the hot summer months, fertilizing rates should be reduced by at least 50 percent.


Ridge Blue Sports Turf should be mowed regularly with a rotary mower. Set mowing at a height between ½ to 1 ½ inches for best results. Never mow more than one-third of top growth at any one mowing.


Newly planted sod should be watered daily for the first 10 days to avoid drying out and to enable the rooting system to penetrate into the new soil. Once sod has been established, watering frequency may be reduced. Do to varying soil and climate conditions, it is difficult to recommend a watering schedule. Soaking the lawn 2 to 3 times a week generally is considered adequate. Water in early morning hours only. During the summer months, when temperatures remain consistently high, a daily morning watering may be necessary.
