West Coaster Kurapia Sod Fertilizer
Starter Fertilizer is recommended when installing a new West Coast Kurapia sod lawn. For new lawns, a starter fertilizer should be used versus fertilizers for already established lawns. You should apply the Starter Fertilizer on the prepped soil prior to installing the West Coast Kurapia sod lawn. After two months, a second application of Starter Fertilizer is recommended. After your West Coast Kurapia sod lawn has established its rooting system, fertilizing can be done twice per year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
West Coaster Kurapia Sod Watering
Properly watering a new West Coast Kurapia sod lawn is one of the most critical factors for the livelihood of this plant. During the first few weeks (up to 2 months), your new West Coast Kurapia sod lawn is going through a process below the surface we can't see up top in which it is establishing its robust rooting system into your lawn. During this time, the freshly cut West Coast Kurapia sod has short and thin roots that need to be constantly fed water to ensure they have the moisture needed to grow. This means that your new West Coast Kurapis sod lawn should be kept consistently moist during the first few weeks. Because the West Coast Kurapia has a more complex rotting system than traditional sod, the rooting and establishment period will be longer than regular grass. One way to ensure your sod lawn is being kept moist enough is to water between 5:00 am - 2:00 pm and avoid nighttime watering. To test the best amount of moisture in your rooting West Kurapia sod lawn, you can gently press your foot or fingers on the lawn and the lawn should be like a wet sponge that releases water out.
After your West Coast Kurapia sod lawn has established its rooting system, watering needs vary based on many factors. Generally, your new West Coast Kurapia sod lawn can be watered 1-2 times per week, but can need more watering in hotter temperatures and less watering in cooler temperatures or shaded areas. Watering also depends on the type of irrigation system you use such as sprinkler system, drip system or hand watering and other factors such as your water pressure.
West Coaster Kurapia Sod Mowing
Mowing the West Coast Kurapia sod is optional. THe West Coast Kurapia sod grows laterally and low enough to the ground resembling traditional sod grass. So, the West Coast Kurapia sod doesn't grow high enough to even require mowing. However, for personal aesthetic reasons, some people mow their West Coast Kurapia sod lawn to maintain it at an even shorter height. Also, some people mow their West Coast Kurapia sod lawn to avoid the seasonal flowering. Avoiding seasonal flowering by mowing can have many reasons such as personal preference for the West Coast Kurapia sod grass without flowers or to avoid the bees the seasonal flowering may attract.
West Coaster Kurapia Sod Growth Rate, Type and Speed
The West Coast Kurapia sod has a lateral growth pattern and a fast growth rate. West Coast Kurapia sod stolons extend themselves laterally and as they grow, each node is simulatneously growing downward for a robust and complex rooting system. CLICK HERE to a watch a video of the Native Lippia rooting system, which was used to develop the West Coast Kurapia sod and will have many similarities. Kurapia sod plugs are also used because of the rapid and lateral growth Kurapia has. When using plugs, the quick, lateral growth of Kurapia sod allows for the Kurapia sod to "fill in." One precaution of installing Kurapia sod plugs is that while the Kurapia sod "fills in", it can be more susceptible to weeds.
West Coaster Kurapia Sod Wintering and Dormancy
Unlike sod grass types such as Bermudagrass, the West Coast Kurapia sod is considered a cool-season sod grass, although it can tolerate temperatures as high as 120 degrees. The West Coast Kurapia sod does not go through a dormancy period in which it browns up, which makes it a great option for a green lawn year-round. The West Coast Kurapia sod does adapt to its environment, with more vibrant, green and tight-knit leaves in sunny conditions and warmer temperatures. In colder and shadier climate conditions, you may see the West Coast Kurapia sod grow slower and have a different shade of green.
