Sod, also known as turf, is a blend of grass and soil held together by roots, commonly used to quickly establish lush lawns. It’s grown on local farms to minimize transport and drying issues. Various grass varieties are cultivated to match consumer preferences. Sod is typically harvested 10 to 18 months after planting, during which it undergoes processes such as fertilization, frequent watering, mowing, and the removal of clippings on the farm. Specialized equipment ensures precision cutting to standardized sizes, such as small square slabs, rolled rectangles, or large 4-foot-wide rolls.
We handle everything from delivery to precise installation, ensuring your lawn gets the care it deserves. Our sod installation services are a practical solution for revitalizing dead lawn areas.
Sodding vs. Seeding
Turf is however more expensive, and requires considerably more water for its establishment.
Types of Sod
In the second variation, called the till-it-all technique, existing grass, as well as the soil underneath holding the grass, are tilled together. The old grass is in effect mixed in with the existing soil creating the surface on which the sod will be installed. Some landscapers prefer this method because it creates the bed on which the sod is installed upfront and without further effort.
Some prefer not to use a tiller to prepare the area to be sodded. They claim that if a neighbor or children were to walk over the newly established sod in the first few days after the installation, the turf would become uneven. The claim is that the soil underneath is still very loose.
Except in wet weather, newly installed sod will require watering on a daily basis, preferably in the morning, for at least one month. If not watered regularly before the grass has rooted into the soil beneath the turf, the grass may die, either at the edges, in patches, or overall. Constant care and inspection is required during the first month after installation.
