Centipede Sod – Pre-Emergent Before Sodding

Pre-emergent under sod

Q: I want to put down centipede sod. If I till and level the area then put down some pre-emergent, will the pre-emergent inhibit the roots of the sod from growing?

A: You’re smart to ask before acting! Much depends on the chemical involved but most pre-emergents do inhibit root growth. Typically, it would not be a good idea to put pre-emergent under the sod. Read the product label to be sure.
