Sod Lawn Installation

Installing a sod lawn takes more than just a little elbow grease. Since sod installation is an investment, you want peace of mind that the professionals you hire for the job will take into account the many variables that affect success. That’s why we like to keep you informed about our process and our progress along the way. Once our experts arrive at your property, we’ll begin these preparation steps:

  • Removing old grass and weeds in 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

Fresh sod requires a different maintenance routine than a regular lawn does. Avoid the temptation to put perfect mow lines or have a picnic on your new lawn. Follow these sod care tips to ensure your new sod takes root:

  • First Week
  1. Avoid overwatering, but never allow the sod to dry out. Water the sod three to four times a day for five to ten minutes.
  2. Avoid watering the sod in the evening.
  3. Avoid foot traffic on your new lawn for at least two weeks.
  • Second Week
  1. Water the lawn for 30 minutes every day, twice a day if necessary.
  • Third Week and Beyond
  1. After three weeks, you can mow the lawn. Keep the mower deck high, and never mow more than 1/3 the length of the grass blades.
  2. Fertilize your new sod six weeks after installation.

Sod installation is in investment, and failure often comes from improper care and maintenance. Once the sod is installed, The Grounds Guys can provide lawn maintenance services to ensure the sod becomes established and looks great for years to come.
