Kelly Sod Farm, located in Hendrix, Oklahoma, is a family owned and operated business that is committed to providing excellent service for each and every one of our customers in the Texoma region and beyond. We stand behind our products and services and are proud to offer competitively priced sod to meet your needs. Kelly Sod Farm felt the need to expand and provide a more convenient location for their customers. In the Spring of 2004 Kelly Sod Sales opened on Texoma Parkway in Denison Texas. In addition to Bermuda sod, customers can find a variety of sod, landscape materials and Bermuda hay.
Before the economic downturn, we were harvesting more than 375 acres at our farm each year. In 2007, we purchased a fully automated sod harvester that produces near-perfectly shaped pallets consistently. During the downturn, we pulled back to 190 acres, and added Bermuda hay, peanuts, and corn. Today, we have acquired additional land, and are now back up to producing almost 350 acres of sod at our farm, with plenty of room for expansion. We will be receiving our second sod harvester in June 2014, and are poised for expansion in the years to come.

Have you ever wondered why your neighbor's yard always looks perfect, even though you never see them working in it? It is important to maintain and protect your lawn as well as enjoy the fruits of your labor. We've compiled these helpful tips for our clients, so that they can spend less time working in their yard and more time enjoying it. If you follow these simple yet important tips your lawn will be thriving in no time.
The first step is to measure your yard, in order to determine the amount of sod is needed. It's important that you order enough to cover the entire space desired the first time. While you are waiting for the sod, make sure that the soil is prepared for installation. This means killing/removing all weeds, tilling the soil, and making sure any drainage issues are taken care of. When the sod arrives, it will need to be installed within 24 hours, while it is fresh and healthy. For the first 2 weeks after installation, irrigate your new lawn daily it should be kept moist, but not standing in water.
Irrigation is crucial for sod survival if you live in a dry region. Due to current water shortages across the country and Texoma, homeowners should maintain a deep, infrequent irrigation schedule. You should apply just enough water to moisten the soil to a depth of 6", while avoiding runoff. After irrigation, do not add more water until drought symptoms are noticed. These symptoms include the sod turning a dull bluish color, leaf blades rolling, and footprints that persist for an extended period of time.
Fertilization is necessary to keep your sod fresh and maintain that beautiful deep green color. You should use a fertilize mixture with a 3-1-2 ratio. 3 standing for nitrogen, 1 for phosphate, and 2 for potash. This mixture could be 15-5-10. You will need to apply approximately 1 pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet each month during the growing season. The numbers in the fertilize mixture represent the pounds of nutrient. For example, the 15 nitrogen in the above misture means 15 pounds of nitrogen is present in 100 pounds of fertilizer mixture. So for the mixture above, you will need to apply approximately 7 pounds per 1,000 square feet.
Mowing is an extremely important component of your sod maintance routine. Different types of sod carry their own optimal mowing height. For example, with hybrid Bermuda sod, the optimal growing height is 1 inch. Mowing frequency varies, depending on the speed of which the grass is growing. A helpful rule of thumb is to "never mow more than 1/3 of the leaf blade off at any one time." Mower blades should be kept sharp at all times, because sharp blades give a smoother, cleaner cut that makes the sod more appealing to the eye, while at the same time protecting it from damage.
