Before Sod Service
After Sod Service
Why should I hire an expert to install my sod?
Our knowledgeable sod experts use high-quality sod and will leave you with a new lawn you can be proud of. We handle all of the dirty work and set you up for success. However, watering your new sod is critical to ensuring it thrives. Our experts recommend making sure newly laid sod stays damp for the first 10-14 days after your sod services.
What should I know before having sod installed?
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, and this can create an uneven lawn. It’s essential to make sure 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 make sure the sod roots are well-established. Watering during the daytime hours is also very important, and hotter temperatures may require more water. The first mowing should happen approximately 2 weeks after installation.
What are the advantages of sod?
One of the biggest advantages of sod is the speed and ease with which any yard can be transformed from looking bare or neglected to looking like it’s 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. For example, you may wish to dedicate a portion of your yard to a pollinator-friendly habitat. We offer specialized lawn options that may be perfect for you! To determine which type of lawn planting is best for you, our experts will consider:
- Your goals, including timeline and budget
- Site conditions such as light exposure, traffic patterns, and climate
