Okanagan Blend Maintenance
Okanagan blend type sod requires basic lawn maintenance. Be careful when planting in warmer climates as watering frequencies may need to be increased until the roots set in (Approx 10-14 days in growing season). Please read the new lawn maintenance guide above for lawn maintenance details.
Okanagan blend sod should be over seeded shortly after winter to repair any damaged areas and not allow weeds to grow. Be sure to use a fast germinating grass seed.
