South Dakota’s Largest Sod Producer
Grown for Our Climate
Our sod is a Kentucky bluegrass triple blend. That type of sod has been tested to perform well in southeast South Dakota’s extreme weather conditions. This blend greens up early in the season, flourishes late into the fall, and can be put down any time the soil is malleable.
We back up our sod with a 1-year warranty. At 12 to 18 months old, it is young, yet weed-free and hardy. Our crews cut our grass sod fresh the day it is installed, which allows roots to quickly set down if given the proper attention. A Parkway sod contractor can help you pick the best plan for your lawn.
With over 26 years of experience, the landscape contractors at Parkway Sod and Sprinkler have developed an efficient process that enables us to lay an entire lawn in mere hours. Your new sod will be fresh, vigorous, even, extremely durable, and won’t cost an arm and a leg.

Is Kentucky Bluegrass Good for Lawns?
In short, yes. The ability to withstand cold climates during the winter makes this bluegrass an excellent option for South Dakota. Every year, the perennial Kentucky bluegrass will come back strong after winter. The time you’ll see this cool-season grass at its strongest is typically fall and spring.
Is Kentucky Bluegrass Seed Easy To Grow?
Yes, Kentucky bluegrass seed is easy to grow. One of the reasons Kentucky bluegrass is common and practical is the ease to grow and maintain. To grow the best bluegrass, we’re sure to follow recommendations. We plant the bluegrass between 1/4″ to 1/2″, and we utilize three pounds of seed per 1,000 square feet. As it’s a cool-season grass, it’s rather weather resistant to the winters we experience. This makes Kentucky bluegrass seed a great option for our South Dakota climate.
Will Kentucky Bluegrass Choke Out Weeds?
Yes. An optimally fertilized and planted bluegrass lawn is fast-spreading after germination, and will overtake and choke out most weeds around the lawn. If your lawn has weed issues, we emphasize the best nitrogen fertilization practices during growing season. Watering the seed is also a crucial part to the best growth of the seed, and we recommend to water the grass at a rate of 1 or 2 inches per week.
How Often Should you Fertilize Kentucky Bluegrass?
Once your lawn is actively growing, it is best practice to fertilize lightly in the springtime. During the fall months, we recommend applying a bit more fertilizer. During the growing season, every 6 to 8 weeks is a good time frame to aim for when fertilizing the bluegrass. If you notice your Kentucky Bluegrass is growing slower, looking more yellow than normal, or is starting to grow weeds, don’t be afraid to lay the fertilizer a little thicker next time. It’s important to keep in mind that adding too much fertilizer can harm your lawn.
