Installing Celebration Bermuda Sod
Once your Celebration Bermuda is established, it exhibits drought tolerant tendencies. Watering is substantially dependent on your soil type, which season it is, geography, and other factors. Look out for the signs of wilting, to stay on top of your irrigation.
Celebration Bermuda grass requires consistent weed and pesticide maintenance, though it has a high tolerance to chemicals most other types of grasses don’t. Celebration Bermuda sod can be kept virtually weed free once you establish a consistent fertilization and pesticide system.
Shady areas and wet soils require much less watering, compared to full-sun areas and sandy soils which require much more. Encourage Celebration Bermuda to have deep roots by watering until the soil is moist to a depth of 3 inches. If you don’t water the correct amounts, this could turn into your sod having shallow roots. Taking time in between your irrigation will maximize drought resistance and tolerance. For mowing, this sod is recommended to be kept at 2″.
