Sod Installation Process

Kill Old Lawn

For best results, water and fertilize your lawn so that it is in a vigorous growth mode. Then we will spray with Roundup®. Roundup is a highly effective herbicide that enters the plant through its foliage and is translocated all the way down to its root system. One thorough treatment will usually completely kill your old lawn and weeds.

Remove Dead Lawn

Using a sod cutter, strip away dead turf, or we can cut and bag the dead grass at ground level.

Rototill Soil

We will call and have all utilities located. After removing rocks or debris, we rototill soil to a depth of four to six inches, then add soil amendments if needed.

Rake and Fine Grade

We rake to break large clods and remove any remaining debris and Fine grade by scraping across the surface to smooth uneven areas. Finished grade will be 1/2 inch below walks, driveways and patios. Sod is uniformly machine cut and will conform to any irregularities left in the grade.

Fertilize and Roll Soil

We Fertilize using a broadcast spreader and starter fertilizer the roll soil to settle and firm surface. Soil will be dry to avoid compaction, Fine grade again if necessary.

Lay Sod

Begin laying freshly cut sod adjacent to the longest boundary of the area to be covered. Stagger each new row of sod so that seams are offset. Butt ends and edges tightly together.

Roll Sod

When all sod is installed, we use a roller in insure a good contact between the sod and native soil.

Water Thoroughly

To avoid having dry patches in your lawn and to promote even growth we will water your sod immediately and advise on a watering program to ensure optimum growth.
