Want a fantastic lawn fast? Sod it with The Sprinkler Company Inc. Here’s what you need to know to get the job done right.

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

  1. Prepare the soil: The soil should be clear of debris, level, and well-drained.
  2. Water the area: Soak the soil a day before installing the grass to ensure it is moist and not dry.
  3. Lay the grass: 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.
  4. Roll the sod: Use a lawn roller to press the sod into the soil and eliminate any air pockets.
  5. Water the grass: Water the sod thoroughly to help it establish roots and prevent drying.

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

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.

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.

Benefits of Sodding Your Lawn

– Instant results: Sodding provides an instant lush green lawn, unlike seeding which takes time to grow.

– Erosion control: Sodding helps prevent soil erosion, especially in sloped areas.

– Weed-free: Sodding reduces the chances of weed growth, as the grass is already established.

– Increased property value: A well-manicured lawn can increase the value of your property.

Maintaining Your Sodded Lawn

– Watering: Water your lawn in the early morning or late afternoon for optimal absorption and to prevent evaporation.

– Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release fertilizer every 6-8 weeks to promote healthy growth.

– Mowing: Mow your lawn to a height of 2-3 inches to encourage root growth and discourage weed growth.

– Aerating: Aerate your lawn once a year to improve water and nutrient absorption.

Common Mistakes to Avoid When Sodding Your Lawn

– Not preparing the soil properly: Proper soil preparation is essential for the success of your sodding project.

– Over or under-watering: Overwatering can lead to root rot, while under-watering can cause the grass to dry out and die.

– Not rolling the sod properly: Rolling the sod helps eliminate air pockets and ensures good soil contact for the roots to establish.

– Not waiting long enough to mow: Wait at least two weeks after sodding before mowing to avoid damaging the roots.
