Imperial® is a quick filling, ultra-dwarf Bermuda with a very fine leaf texture, making it perfect for a putting surface. This product is a 400 sq. ft. pallet of Imperial® sod.
Imperial® is a ultra-dwarf Bermuda grass. Although very similar to Tif Eagle, Imperial® has much smaller leaves and shorter spacing between the leaves, creating a finer, softer turf that is perfect for putting. Imperial® has also out ranked other grasses in stimp measurements. Imperial had the highest rating, meaning when putting, the ball travels further and straighter on Imperial® than other common putting turfs. Check out the graph to see the results.

Installation & Care Guide
Prepare the soil by loosening 4 – 6” deep, removing any debris. Level the area with topsoil and smooth with a rake. Pre-irrigate the surface the evening before sod installation. It is essential the sod is not installed on a dry surface. Flag sprinkler heads to prevent covering the irrigation
Quick Tip: Gently touch the soil with your hands, if grains of soil stick to your finger pads, you are good to go!
Lay sods just like bricks, in a stagger pattern. Line the seams next to each other, creating no gaps. Make sure the pieces are in contact with soil as much as possible.
Begin to water right away to start
establishment and prevent drying out.
Water is key when it comes to a new lawn.
Installation Day: The ground should feel soggy as you step on it; water, water, water!
First 10-14 Days: Water multiple times a day for short intervals. Depending on the weather, 2 to 6 times a day for 4 to 6 minutes at a time
Once Established: 1-2 inches a week. Irrigation is required as often as it takes to avoid stress. Stress means dried out, crunchy or wilted turf. Watering is a site-specific need and varies widely.
At the 14-day mark, your lawn should be rooted and ready for the first mow. Be sure to check by pulling gently on the sod; do not mow if it comes up.
A contact/systemic fungicide application should occur within 24-48 hours after installation. This will help avoid install stress. After first application, a follow up application is recommended according to product
Wait a minimum of 14 days after installation before applying any herbicide to any turf. Assuming you are supplying your new lawn with enough water then your grass should be rooted down 2 weeks post install.
Wait 30 days to fertilize your yard, you are then able to apply a dry granular fertilizer according to the label instructions.
At just over a month old your new grass is still establishing its root system. To expedite the rooting process, apply a dry granular fertilizer, we recommend Scotts® Southern Turf Builder granular fertilizer at rates recommended on the instructions on the bag. With more roots comes better moisture and nutrient transfer throughout the plant and an overall healthier stand of grass. Establishing a new lawn is a slow process, so be patient.
