Here’s what you need to know about SOD installation process.

SOD installation involves laying pre-grown grass over an area of bare soil to quickly establish a lawn. Here are some steps:

The soil should be clear of debris, level, and well-drained.

Soak the soil a day before installing the grass to ensure it is moist and not dry.

Start at one corner of the area, and lay the sod in a brick-like pattern, making sure each piece is tightly butted against the next.

Water the sod thoroughly to help it establish roots and prevent drying.

The sod-growing farmers take excellent care of the turf when it is growing on their farms. We get our sod the same day that it is cut from the farm, and delivered straight to your door. It is regularly watered, well kept, and fertilized, which enhances the growth of roots and makes them strong and significantly more resistant than regular seeded grass.

Sodding services typically provide the sod and handle the installation process for you.

In our company, we install Kentucky bluegrass. It is a popular cool-season grass species commonly used for lawns, sports fields, and golf courses. It is known for its fine texture, dark green color, and ability to recover quickly from damage. Kentucky bluegrass grows well in regions with cool summers and cold winters and prefers full sun to partial shade. It needs regular watering, fertilization, and mowing to maintain its appearance.
