Lawn Care After Flooding – Tips From J&J Nursery Spring TX

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.

Repair your lawn
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.

St. Augustine Grass Pallet.

How to install your grass pallets:

  1. Prepare the ground first. Remove weeds. Dig up the ground a bit so that its not hard and compacted for better results. Use topsoil or bank sand if you need to add dirt.
  2. Then water the ground lightly using a mix of root stimulator which helps the roots to grow and take to the dirt.
  3. Place each square on the ground. Then water again with root stimulator.
  4. Water daily for two weeks.
  5. Don’t fertilize until next season.  For example, if you buy grass in April then fertilize around July. If you fertilize too soon it will kill your grass.

Madison Gardens Nursery is located at 7644 Spring Cypress Rd., Spring, TX 77379.
