Rain Bittersweet for Sod Farm

All the rain we have had since Sunday is a great drink for the sod, but at the same time, hinders business for the sod farm. With standing water in our sod fields, we will have to wait several days after the rains end before we will be able to get our equipment onto the fields to commence cutting and hauling sod. In the meantime, we have mulches, fertilizers, and seeds available in our stores. We appreciate your patience during this time and thank you for your loyalty.

Open Saturdays for the Season

All Easton Sod Farm locations are open on Saturdays beginning today, April 2, 2016 from 8:00 A.M. to Noon for the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons.

Come see us for all your landscaping needs.

Even Eagles Like Our Sod

Sent in from one of our drivers who caught an eagle on camera in one of our fields collecting some broken pieces of Bermuda sod this morning:

Feels Like Spring

We started replenishing our mulch supplies this week. With the 73 degree sunny day we’re having today and the fresh smell of mulch, it feels and smells a lot like spring around the sod farm!

Weed Control: Preemergent

When the weather is cold, it is sometimes difficult to begin thinking about lawn care. But, February is upon us which means it is time to start thinking about weed control: preemergent.

Below are some basic weed control suggestions. READ AND FOLLOW ALL LABEL DIRECTIONS.

For Fescue: Early February – Early March

Preemergent Grass Control – (pick only one, products with “**” are best, REMEMBER DO NOT APPLY PRIOR TO SEEDING OR LAYING SOD). A second application may be needed, see labels for details.
bensulide (BETASAN®️, SCOTT’S WEEDGRASS PREVENTER®️)
dithiopyr** (DIMENSION®️) – preemergent activity
pendamethalin** (SCOTT’S HALTS®️ and many others)
prodiamine** (BARRICADE®️) – on fertilizer particle
oryzalin** (SURFLAN®️) – if Kentucky bluegrass is present, consider another herbicide
oryzalin+benefin (XL2G®️, AMAZE®️) – if Kentucky bluegrass is present, consider another herbicide
siduron (TUPERSAN®️) – use only if seeding in spring and in fescue, bluegrass, or ryegrass only. TUPERSAN®️ is weak but is the only preemergent herbicide that can be used at seeding time on cool-season turf grass.

Preemergent Broadleaf Control
