Preparation and Installation Process

Laying the Foundation for a Healthy Lawn

To ensure the establishment and durability of your new lawn, the preparation and sod installation are essential processes.

Water Conservation Strategies

Promoting Efficient and Sustainable Water Use

After installation, proper care and upkeep are necessary to establish your new sod and preserve its beauty and health.


For the first few weeks following installation, it’s essential to follow the comprehensive watering regimen we provide. To maintain the sod damp but not soggy, this calls for regular watering.


It’s best to wait to mow the first time until the sod has taken root in the ground, which usually takes two to three weeks following installation. To encourage good growth, we offer advice on the proper height and frequency of mows.

Sod vs. Seeding: Pros and Cons

Making the Right Choice for Your Lawn

The decision between seeding and sod depends on a number of variables, such as maintenance preferences, time, and money. We offer a thorough comparison to assist you in making a wise choice.

Sod Pros

Instant Lawn

Unlike seeding, which takes time to germinate and grow, installing sod results in an instant green grass.

Erosion Control

Sod works well on sloping terrain because it effectively stops soil erosion.

Less Initial Maintenance

Because sod is less susceptible to weed invasion and soil erosion than seeded lawns, it requires less initial upkeep.

Seeding Pros


In general, especially for larger areas, seeding is more economical than sodding.

Variety Selection

By providing a greater selection of grass varieties, seeding enables you to customize your lawn even more.

Deep Root Development

Grass grown from seeds may initially have deeper root systems, which may be advantageous to the long-term health of your lawn.

Frequently Asked Questions for Sod Install

How do I choose the right type of sod for my lawn?

What is the process for installing new sod?

Our sod installation process includes several key steps:

Site Preparation: First, we level the ground, remove any weeds and rubbish from the area, and, if needed, improve the quality of the soil.

Sod Laying: To provide a uniform appearance, we ensure tight seams and correct alignment when we lay the sod.

Initial Watering: To promote root establishment, we vigorously water the sod as soon as it is installed.

How long does it take for new sod to establish?

Regular Watering: Watering the sod on a regular basis will help it stay damp but not soggy until it becomes established.

First Mowing: Two to three weeks following installation, or until the sod has firmly taken root, is when the first mow should be performed.

Fertilization: The process of adding fertilizer to sod to supply the essential nutrients for growth once it has taken root.
