HEAT AND WEAR TOLERANCE:

Blueridge Sports Turf with RPR can be lightly over-seeded yearly after heavy usage to maintain its proper density.
Blueridge Sports Turf with RPR will moderately tolerate shade, preferring a sunnier location. (Needs a minimum of 4 to 5 hours of direct sun light each day)
Blueridge Sports Turf with RPR has a excellent disease tolerance to most diseases due to the new improved bluegrass and RPR perennial ryegrass varieties. Turf, which is properly watered, mowed and fertilized is much less likely to be affected by disease.
Blueridge Sports Turf with RPR will keep a deep, rich bluegreen color throughout the year, if properly maintained and fertilized. Its color and natural beauty is what sets it apart from other sod varieties.
A good complete fertilizer is required twice a year in the spring and fall. All others fertilizer applications may be made with Higher Nitrogen during the late fall, winter and early spring. 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 (July & Aug) fertilizing rates should be reduced by at least 50 percent.
Blueridge Sports Turf should be mowed regularly every 5 to 7 days with a rotary mower. Set mowing at a height between 1 ½ to 2 inches and sharpen the mower blade regularly. Never mow more than one-third of top growth at anyone 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 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. Deep Soaking the lawn 2 to 3 times a week generally is considered adequate. Water in early morning hours only (between 2am & 8am) if possible. During the summer months, when temperatures remain consistently high, a daily morning watering may be necessary.
