S & K recommends exterminating all existing grass and weeds with a glyphosate herbicide. All remnants of prior grasses and weeds should be removed before new sod is placed. Seeds, spores and existing root systems in the soil will compete for the nutrients and space required to grow. After the existing weeds and grass has been killed the best practice is to remove the dead plants with a sod cutter, then thoroughly rake the area to ensure the new sod has the most suitable environment to promote establishment and continued growth. It is vital for anyone considering purchasing sod to understand that sod cannot be placed on top of existing grass, sod, turf, weeds or untreated soil and be expected to flourish. To lay sod in this manner handicaps the sod’s ability to reach its full potential and violates the S & K Sod Warranty.
