When you are installing sod in the heat of the day, any temperature above 85 degrees fahrenheit, you must be careful of both your soil temperature and your turf temperature. In order to prevent burning the roots and minimize burning the sod we recommend that you give your soil a good watering before installing turf and that you water the turf as soon as you install it. Do not wait until the installation is complete to water it. Start watering as soon as you complete your first section and continue watering throughout installation. If you do this you will be less likely to have to deal with turf that dies shortly after installation due to burnt roots and blades.
