Expert Sod Installation in Carbondale

What Are Sod Landscape Installations?

Sod landscaping (or turfgrass) involves covering a prepared area with pre-grown grass. The sod is composed of layers of soil and grass that have been harvested from a farm or nursery. It essentially acts as a carpet for your yard and can be placed in almost any shape or size. Sod comes in a variety of different types of grasses so you can choose one that best suits your needs.

Sod Installation

A new sod installation calls for different upkeep than a typical grass, refrain from mowing your new lawn perfectly or having a picnic there - to guarantee that your new sod takes root, use the following sod care advice:

  • First Week - Try to avoid overwatering, but keep the sod from getting too dry. For five to ten minutes each time, water the sod three to four times per day. The sod shouldn't be watered in the evening. On your new lawn, limit foot traffic for at least two weeks.
  • Second Week - Water the lawn twice daily if necessary for 30 minutes each time. You can cut the lawn after three weeks. Never cut more than one-third of the way through the grass blades, and keep the mower deck high.
  • Three Weeks and Beyond - Never cut more than one-third of the way through the grass blades, and keep the mower deck high. After six weeks, fertilize your newly installed sod. Installation of sod is an investment, and failure is frequently caused by poor upkeep. The Grounds Guys may offer lawn maintenance services once the sod has been laid, ensuring that it takes root and looks fantastic for many years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sod Landscaping


Many people find that sod is much easier than planting and growing grass from seed because it gives them an instant lawn without the hassle of waiting for the grass to grow in. From the moment you lay down the sod, your yard will already look great! Of course, there are some drawbacks to sod landscaping that should be taken into consideration.


Sod can be expensive compared to growing grass from seed, and it requires regular maintenance such as mowing and fertilizing in order to keep it looking great. Some types of sod may also require more water than others in order to stay healthy throughout the year. Additionally, if not installed correctly or maintained properly, sod can die out quickly leading to costly repairs or replacements.


Maintaining sod isn’t overly difficult but it does require consistent effort in order to keep it looking good all year long. Most types of grass need at least one inch of water per week during hot summer months in order for them to remain healthy and lush green throughout the year. Additionally, regular mowing and fertilizing will help ensure that your lawn stays vibrant and weed-free all year round.


Depending on how well you take care of it and where you live geographically, a well-maintained lawn should last anywhere from 5-10 years before needing replacement or repairs due to wear and tear from use or weather conditions.


Yes! All types of turfgrass need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight every day in order to stay healthy and lush green throughout the year so if you’re considering installing sodded turfgrass make sure you have sufficient sunlight exposure available on your property before doing so!


No! While all types of turfgrass need some amount of water every day (at least 1 inch per week), they don’t need watering every single day—only when necessary depending on weather conditions or during especially hot summer months when more water is needed for optimal growth conditions!
