Installing Your LawnThe steps to a great lawn
Starting off on the right foot is essential to ensuring your sod becomes the spectacular lawn you’re expecting. Here are a few steps that we recommend for before, during and after sod installation.
Step 1: Remove the Old Lawn
Before removing your old lawn, it is recommended the old lawn is completely dead. Doing this requires a little more time but gives better results in the end.
Step 2: Install/Repair Sprinklers
A properly installed and maintained underground sprinkler system is essential to a healthy lawn. Before laying the new sod is the time to make any needed repairs or installation.
Step 3: Soil Preparation
Once the old lawn has been removed, preparing the soil helps ensure the new sod will thrive.
Step 4: Sod Installation
Don’t order the sod until the first three steps have been completed! Ensure the sod is kept moist even during the installation process.
Step 5: Watering
Newly installed lawns need extra watering for the first 20 days.
