Additional frequently asked questions about sod installation
Insufficient watering is the number one reason that new sod fails. If the sod dries out, it shrinks and creates seams that are tough to fix, resulting in an uneven lawn. It’s essential to ensure the sod is soaked soon after the installation, and we recommend watering 2-3 times per day for the first 7-14 days after your sod services to ensure the sod roots are well-established. Watering during the daytime is also very important, and hotter temperatures may require more water. The first mowing should happen approximately two weeks after installation.
One of the most significant advantages of sod is the speed and ease with which any yard can be transformed from bare or neglected to being covered with a lush, green carpet. If you have a special event such as an outdoor graduation party or wedding, sod services allow you to have your yard picture-perfect in time for the event. In cases where other seeding solutions might be a better fit, our experts can help you make the best decision. To determine which type of lawn planting is best for you, our experts will consider the following:
- Your timeline and budget
- Site conditions such as light exposure, traffic patterns, and micro-climates
- Goals for your property
