The Q&A Archives: Sod Losing Color

Question: I laid my sod and it does not seem as green after a couple of weeks. Is there anything I can do to help?

Answer: Grass loses color for many reasons, including stress due to dry soil, pest or disease issues, over or under fertilizing or reaction to chemical exposure or herbicide. The best way to green it up will depend on what has caused it to lose color. You might want to ask a Certified Nursery Consultant at The Home Depot for assistance in determining the problem. If a treatment or fertilizer is needed, you will find a wide selection of available products from Miracle-Gro and Vigoro in store.
