St Luke Catholic Church - Patriot Bermuda

The last of 2 bermuda renovations took place at St Luke Catholic Church in Indianapolis, IN.  With the assistance of Myers Sod Farm, 60,000 sq ft of Patriot bermudagrass was installed yesterday.  The sod arrived in refrigerated trucks from Oakwood Sod Farm in Delmar, MD.

The following activities took place before the sod was installed:

  • One glyphosate application to the existing fescue field 
  • Blecavating the existing tall fescue turf into the rootzone
  • Addition of 10 loads of pulverized topsoil
  • Minor irrigation adjustments
  • Laser grading of the rootzone
After those activities were complete, the sod was installed.  Here are a few photos:
