Preparing for Installation

Study your area, determine how much sun and/or how much shade each area is exposed to. This information will help you determine the right sod type for your area. Please keep in mind that NO sod will grow in complete shade. For areas with minimal sun light exposure, ground covers, such as jasmine, liriope and others, could work as a solution. 

Mowing

It is important to ensure the ground and grass is dry before you begin mowing. Cutting your lawn too short can create stress for your grass and make it more susceptible to diseases.

Determine the variety of grass you have and find out the optimal height for healthy growth to encourage good root stimulation.

Growth rates vary based on weather conditions throughout the year. A flexible mowing schedule is required for a healthy lawn. During the Spring and Fall season your grass will grow rapidly and may require more frequent mowing. However, during the summer and winter months, your grass may hardly grow, this is when you may not even have to mow once a week.

Proper mowing practices help prevent weed growth and disease. 

Fertilization

The strength of any landscape and maintenance program starts with healthy soil. The use of fertilizer will help build big and strong roots, achieve great beauty and health, supply nutrients, stimulators and vitamins to help strengthens all plants and soils. The correct fertilization will also help prevent weeds from growing. An optimal fertilization schedule will allow you to fertilize two to three times per year. Precisely when you apply fertilizer depends partly on your climate, but mostly on the type of sod you have. The key is to fertilize during the season when your grass is doing the most growing. As a result, you will get an improved soil and more successful landscape project.

Sod Installation

  

Rototilling the Ground 

Whether you are installing a new lawn or trying to rejuvenate an old one, a rototiller can help you level the ground as it turns over the soil.  It also allows you to work starter fertilizers into the soil to help produce a lush lawn. If you don’t own a rototiller then rake the soil to provide a smooth surface and remove large rocks to avoid a lumpy, uneven lawn. 


Grading

Grading the surface will loosen the soil, making it easier for roots to form and penetrate the soil. If you don’t grade the surface the sod has a harder time forming roots.

Making sure water is draining out of the yard is key for a healthy lawn. Shall a problem area exist, we can assist by installing a drainage system such as French Drain. The soil should be graded away from the home and out to the streets to allow an ideal water flow.


Top-Soil 

Although it may not be necessary to add top-soil, it may be beneficial. Compost top-soil mixes are recommended to add beneficial nutrients to the lawn.


Root Stimulation.

It is highly recommended to spread starter fertilizer to the soil directly before the installation of the sod. We recommend Organic Fertilizers, avoid fertilizers high in Nitrogen that may hurt and stress the sod.


Laying the Sod

The sod slabs should be neatly place together, do not leave gaps in between, the gaps will allow room for weeds to grow.


Rolling the newly lay sod

A heavy roller should be used for a final even and level surface. It is an important step so the root system can develop properly as contact with the soil beneath is crucial.
