Sod is a turfgrass that has been established by a sod farm. Purchased locally, types of sod may include rolls or plugs. Rolls of sod are purchased and delivered to your property on pallets. The rolls of sod are then laid over the soil, with strips tucked together and then rolled flat with a weighted roller. Plugs of sod are common with warm-season grasses. They are purchased by the bushel or torn from strips of sod. Plugs are planted in the soil in rows apart from one another, and over time they grow and fill in the barren areas.
Turfgrass seed can be applied in one of two ways, with a spreader or sprayer. Broadcast seeding utilizes a spreader to scatter seed over an area. Seed is then raked into the soil surface. Hydroseeding utilizes a tank and sprayer to apply a greenish-blue slurry of seed, mulch, and fertilizer over an area.
Only you and those around you know what color your thumb is. For those of you without a green thumb, plants have a few environmental needs to grow and stay alive: temperature, water, soil, and sunlight. When Mother Nature doesn't provide these, you need to. That all seems rather easy, right? Whether you are planting a new garden or adding to an existing one, a little knowledge, planning, and preparation will go a long way toward earning your green thumb and determining the future success of your garden.
Transplantation is the uprooting of established trees, shrubs, plants, or flowers and re-planting them at a new location. This is often done in order to avoid damaging expensive plantings at a project site, or to facilitate new construction work, thereby reducing total project costs. Transplantation can also include the relocation of plantings from one project site to another, sometimes transporting them over significant distances. Uprooting and transplanting foliage can be very traumatic to the plant and can cause it to perish if done improperly. Various practical transplantation guidelines and precautions have been established by nursery, plant and tree professionals, based on their training and experience.
