Prior to laying new sod, if you have clay or compacted soil, and you have not applied Earth Right on that area within the past 8 months, apply at a single rate 10 days prior to laying the sod. If you have never applied it in the past use 1 qt/5,000 sq ft (4 oz/gal). Apply Mushroom Stuff® on top of the sod the day it is installed, 8 oz/5,000 sq ft. (1 oz/gal). This will act as your root stimulator and provide the natural nutrients required for rapid rooting with increased root mass. Once the root system is established, apply Starter Fertilizer in granular form or Sure Bloom® at a rate of 1 qt/5,000 – 10,000 sq ft. (2-4 oz/gal).
