Warranty Policy - Weeds

It is Generally Not Possible to Warranty against Weeds that may arise following a New Sod Installation because the growth of Weeds is influenced by a variety of factors outside of the control of the Installer / Supplier (Sodfather) or manufacturer (Turf Farm). Weeds are natural and resilient plants that can grow in a wide range of soil and environmental conditions, and their seeds can be present in Neighboring Soils or carried in by Wind, Birds, or other Animals. Even if the Installer takes precautions such as Preparing the Soil, adding Fresh Topsoil, and laying the Sod properly, weeds can still appear. Additionally, some types of weeds can lay dormant in the surrounding soil for years before germinating, making it difficult to predict and prevent their growth. For these reasons, it is typically not feasible to warranty against the growth of weeds following a new sod installation.

Warranty Policy - Pet Damage

Pet urine can have negative effects on lawns, soil, and the pH of soil. When pets urinate on lawns, the high concentration of nitrogen and salts in their urine can burn the grass and create unsightly brown spots or patches. The urine can also alter the pH balance of the soil, making it more acidic and less hospitable to plant growth. Over time, this can lead to thinning of the lawn and an increase in weeds and other undesirable vegetation.

In addition to affecting the appearance of the lawn, pet urine can also have a negative impact the pH level of the soil, with the urine causing the soil to become more acidic over time. This can further exacerbate the negative effects on the lawn and soil quality, creating an environment that is less hospitable to many types of plants., such as New Kentucky Bluegrass Sod.

Overall, it is important for pet owners to take steps to minimize the impact of pet urine on their lawns and soil. This may include training pets to use designated areas for their bathroom needs, as well as regularly watering affected areas to dilute the urine.
