Is your lawn able to recover from flooding?
Unforunately, turf that’s been under water more than 4 days, especially in hot weather, is likely a loss.
Should You Repair or Resod After a Flood?
Follow the instructions below to salvage your lawn or reinstall grass.
1. Remove debris – nails, wooden pieces, muck(sediment), etc.
2. Decide whether to repair or resod. If your lawn is under 3 or more inches of soil/sediment, resod/replant your grass. With more than 2 inches of soil, recovery is unlikely.
If lawn is covered in less than 1-2 inches of dirt, go over it 3-4 times w/ a core type aerifier. Can also reseed at this time. We carry rye grass seeds. Fertilize with any fertilizer appropriate for the season such as Crabgrass Preventer Plus Lawn Food. Irrigate the lawn to maintain moist, but not saturated, soil conditions.
Resod your lawn
Remove as much deposited soil as possible. You can also rototill the deposited soil and original lawn soil until well mixed. Level and firm the mixed soil, water with a mixture of Root Stimulator, then resod or seed the grass. We carry sod, rye grass seeds and root stimulator.
* Check for new shoots emerging from the soil or the emergence of new shoots from surviving plants to assess damage.
