Sod Installation Steps and Care
Soil Health Examination & Removal
Before we ever begin laying a single piece of new grass (sod), we meticulously assess the health and condition of your soil. We remove and dispose of any existing grass / lawn by trimming or cutting it with special equipment.
Soil Preparation & Leveling
After we’ve assessed your soil, we apply the required elements and nutrients to prepare it for your new grass installation. We use natural, organic fertilizer and compost to create a lawn that’s healthier for you, your pets and the environment. Leveling is also very important in the installation of grass to ensure that the land slopes correctly to avoid any puddling of water after a rainfall.
New Grass Installation
After the soil is prepped, it’s finally time to lay your sod and cut it to your lawn’s dimensions and around other elements like trees and flowerbeds. A sod roller is then pushed across the lawn to remove air pockets under the sod strips and to press the roots firmly into the soil.
Water and monitor
After installation, its’s important to give your new lawn lots of water and monitor for things like pests such as grubs or unwanted growths such as mushrooms.
