SOD

Tax sale is not included in prices. 8.25% wil be included on invoice total.​

Spring and fall are the best times to install sod because of the cooler temperatures and more rainfall. Summer is a good time as well, however, more attention needs to be paid to watering and keeping the new sod wet for the first few weeks during the hottest period of the year.

 

Sodding your lawn allows you to enjoy instant beauty and maturity without the usual time consuming hassles of seeding. When purchasing turf, be sure that you are getting the freshest, finest quality turf available.

 

Watering must be started immediately after the sod is installed. This way you can get started watering while the rest of the sod is being installed. It is essential that enough water is put down the first time to thoroughly soak the sod and the soil under the sod.

 

We install sod in some spots or entire lawn. Re-leveling with additional top soil if necessary.
