Newly planted Zoysia sod - Questions
I laid 5 pallets of Palisades Zoysia sod 2 weeks ago. The grass is green and roots are taking quickly. When i got this sod, it smelled like manure so i am very confident it was well fertilized.
I did not have enough sod so I got 2 more pallets from a different company and laid it a week later. It has been down a week but looks nothing close to the other sod I laid as far as color. The roots are not taking as quickly as the other sod I laid and the grass color is "lime" green. When I got this sod, it looked a little dried out, it came back to life after i got some water on it but still not doing as good as the other sod.
The second batch of sod seems like it is still dormant. Anything i can do to speed things up, get it to green up? Can i put down a fertilzer that will help it? I've read to wait until the roots take but i am a little impatient and hate that one part of my yard is green and the other is lime green.
I'm just looking for any advice to help the sod out.
