Sod Lawn Installation

Installing a sod lawn is a complex process that should be done by a team of experienced professionals who understand all the variables that need to be considered for success. After our expert sod installers arrive at your home, they will inspect your yard and make a plan for preparation and installation. Our sod lawn installation process involves:

  • Removing old grass and weeds from the soil
  • Amending the soil if necessary
  • Grading the soil so it’s level and drains well
  • Installing the sod with industry best practices
  • Setting up irrigation or sprinklers to ensure the sod receives plenty of water

Fresh Sod Care

Regular lawns don’t require nearly as much maintenance as fresh sod lawns. Once our professionals install your new lawn, it should be watered properly and treated carefully for several weeks to ensure your new sod takes root in the ground beneath. Follow these tips to ensure your new sod lawn takes root properly:

  • First Week – While you don’t want to overwater your new sod lawn, you don’t want to let it dry out. Watering it three to four times a day for five to ten minutes should be enough watering depending on your climate. Avoid watering it in the evening because any water remaining on the grass can promote disease and fungus. Don’t allow foot traffic on your new lawn for at least two weeks.
  • Second Week – Water your lawn for 30 minutes every day, twice a day if necessary. Make sure the water gets to all areas of the lawn.
  • Third Week & Beyond – Once you’ve hit the three-week mark, you can mow the lawn. Be sure to keep the mower deck high and never mow more than 1/3 the length of the grass blades.
  • Six Weeks – To ensure your new sod remains healthy, you should fertilize your new sod three to four times during the growing season.

If you’re a homeowner investing in sod installation for your lawn, it’s essential to care for it in the weeks following your installation. Once your sod lawn is installed, the Grounds Guys of East Wichita will provide lawn care tips and offer our professional lawn maintenance services to ensure the sod becomes established and looks great for years to come.

Benefits of Installing Sod

Sometimes homeowners have difficulty deciding between installing sod vs. planting grass seed to create a beautiful, green lawn. Some of the key benefits of having a team of lawn care professionals install your new sod lawn in Wichita include:

  • You receive an instant lawn without having to wait months for grass seed to germinate and grow.
  • Sod doesn’t wash away like grass seed. If your freshly laid grass seed is washed away from rain or sprinklers, you'll waste your investment and create bare spots in your yard.
  • Sod will create a uniform look for your grass. Grass seed can create patchy areas that will later need to be filled in with additional grass seed.
  • Sod is already established and only takes a couple of weeks to fully root into your yard.
  • Installing sod keeps mud to a minimum. When planting grass seed, your yard will be muddy until the seed germinates, grows, thickens, and becomes well-established in the ground.
  • Installing sod outperforms seeding in shaded areas where grass seed won’t germinate due to the lack of sunlight.
  • Sod prevents soil erosion.
  • Sod is grown by professional turfgrass farmers, giving your residential lawn a strong foundation for health.
  • Seeding your yard creates a window for weeds to grow, while sod keeps out weeds much more effectively.
