Hi folks we are wanting everyone to know that sodding in the fall and through the winter is very fine. The sods will knit down until the soil temperature reaches a low of 47 degrees. It will require many cold nights for our soils here in Southeastern NC to reach that temperature. And even after that you can lay totally dormant sod (there is root activity) on soils that are even frozen. The sod will simply lay there – stopping the mud and dust from coming in your home and stopping any erosion. By mid April, the dormant sods will “wake up” and start showing new leaf growth. This is the time to fertilize as well. Do NOT apply a pre-emergent fertilizer for weeds until the following fall. Mowing will remove most winter time annuals and spring time weeds.
