If Florida's drought has pushed back your lawn care, then with the afternoon rainy season upon us, now may be a quick chance to lay your sod.
However, that comes with an extra step to keep the grass healthy.
Charlie's Re-Sod company has had the phones ringing for lawn care, now that customers know that the rain will act as a sprinkler system.
"That's just fine," said owner Charlie Fernandez, "the sod is extra moist so it can go a day or two without water."
Fernandez uses a special farm fresh quality sod that is delivered daily, however, that's not on everyone's budget.
A few tips he goes by: first get rid all of the dead weeds and grass to start.
Next, when you lay your sod, depending on the type -- the key step is you will likely need an anti fungus treatment because of the warm temperatures and the rain.
If you're on a budget, he suggests buying one pallet of sod at a time.
Once your sod is laid, don't cut the grass for 30 days.
You may need a resod expert to help develop a plan for your yard.
Water restrictions remain in effect until August first: this includes the ability to water your lawn only once a week.
