Overheating Sod: Preventing Disaster!

    Will the overheated sod come back to life?? The Nursery sold our sod on 90 degree days in rolls that were almost burn’ing our skin as it was unrolled on our yard. The sales person claimed it would be fine and come back but it’s been five days of heavy watering and we have a lot more brown & “dead” grass showing than we do green!! Worried sick and have a huge water bill to contend with! Thanks for your time to respond!

      Hey Judy!

      Thank you for your comment! I am terribly sorry to hear that your sod is overheated. It can absolutely come back to life, but it will take quite a bit of effort to revivify the burnt grass… I would reach out to your nursery and let them know that you have followed all installation procedures to a ‘T’ but your sod is still not establishing. Hopefully they will put a priority on customer service, like we do here at OrderSodNow, and be able to replace at least some of the rolls. It is truly frustrating when you put all the time, effort, and WATER into a sod installation only to discover that it is overheated. Send some photos in to your nursery and hopefully that will prove to them that action needs to be taken!

      Sorry I can’t be of more help Judy, but hopefully you can work something out with your local nursery!

      All the best and don’t forget, green-side up,
