Abstract/Contents:"Stand establishment of direct seeded hard fescue is slow. Sodding eliminates this slow establishment in landscape plantings. This study looked at the effects of sod thickness and different rates of nitrogen fertilization before and after sodding on stand establishment and overall turf quality. Evaluation 2, 4 and 8 weeks after sodding assessed rooting and overall turf quality. Biomass measurements were taken 6 months after planting. Thicker sod rooted better 4 weeks after planting, but after 8 weeks rooting of both thicknesses used was similar. Nitrogen fertilization before or after sodding did not affect sod rooting; however, more of nitrogen led to better overall turf quality up to 4 weeks after planting. This quality difference disappeared 8 weeks after sodding."
