For Spring Turf Planting Season, Super-Sod Created a New How-To Video Entitled "Two Views on Shade and Turf"

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) March 27, 2015

To address their number one lawn care question which concerns sod and shade issues, Super-Sod spent a year filming this video to explain the complicated dynamics between the light requirements a lawn needs and the shady environment it's often expected to thrive in, be it in dense building or filtered tree shade.

All plants need light to survive. Anytime a sun-loving plant is put in the shade the plant is essentially being put on a diet. Many homeowners try to amend this issue by applying large quantities of fertilizer, but if the plant isn’t able to get light then it is not able to feed.

One thing to keep in mind: the human eye is very poor at seeing degrees of shade. We can tell that an area is shaded, but not the amount of shade. Light meters are availale to measure the amount of light filtering into a garden and are useful tools for providing the necessary feedback.

When assessing the amount of shade in an area, the first step is to observe is anything is currently growing in that area. If there is not even a weed growing in the shaded area, chances are, turfgrass will not thrive there. There are other solutions for that dense shade, such as monkey grass, shade-loving shrubs and perennials, and mulch. Alternatively, trees can be limed up to allow more sunlight to reach the grassy lawn below. Cultural practices such as allowing the grass to grow a little longer than usual are explained in Super-Sod's video.

For more information on how to assess shade in your lawn and how to solve the problem, this informative video, Two Views on Shade and Turf, by the turfgrass experts at Super-Sod and the University of Georgia, provides excellent insight.

Super-Sod is a family-run business that employs experts in turf and horticulture. One of their most popular products has been their Soil3 organic compost, delivered in a cubic yard BigYellowBag, which they make partially from composted grass clippings from their sod production. Super-Sod continues to develop new garden products, foster gardening and landscaping, and always seeks to improve their farming practices, technology, environmental stewardship, and employee knowledge.
