Advantages of Sod Installation

With instant greenery, strong roots, precise sod cutting, and improved soil quality, you’ll enjoy a beautiful, healthy lawn without the hassles of traditional seeding.

Instant Greenery and Time Savings

When it comes to transforming your lawn quickly and effortlessly, sod installation reigns supreme. Unlike traditional seeding that demands patience and weeks of waiting, laying sod offers you the luxury of instant greenery. Within a mere 1 to 2 weeks after our professional team installs the sod rolls, you’ll be enjoying a beautiful new lawn, ready for gatherings and relaxation. Say goodbye to the slow progress of seed germination and say hello to a lush, healthy lawn in record time.

Healthier Roots and Establishing a Strong Foundation

One of the key benefits of sod installation is the establishment of healthy grass roots from the get-go. Since sod is grown on specialized sod farms with carefully controlled conditions, the grass roots are well-developed and robust.

When we lay the sod on your prepared soil, these strong roots grow seamlessly into the native soil, ensuring a stable and reliable foundation for your new lawn. As a result, you’ll have a lawn that not only looks beautiful but also stays healthier and more resilient over time.

Precise Sod Cutter for a Perfect Fit

DIY sod installation can be daunting and imprecise, but with our expertise and equipment, we ensure a flawless fit for your lawn. Our professional team utilizes a sod cutter, allowing us to measure accurately and cut the sod rolls to fit any unique garden beds or irregularly shaped areas.

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, and that’s why we take the time to lay sod with precision, as if we’re putting together a masterful brick pattern, ensuring every square foot of your lawn receives the care it deserves.

Improved Soil Quality with Soil Amendments

Installing sod is not just about rolling out new grass; it’s also an opportunity to enhance the quality of your soil. Before we lay the sod, our experts perform a soil test and analysis to determine your soil’s pH and nutrient levels.

If needed, we apply soil amendments to optimize the soil for the new grass, ensuring it thrives and flourishes in its new home. This extra step in our sod installation process guarantees that your lawn gets the best possible start, resulting in a vibrant and long-lasting new grass area.

Let Farrell’s Lawn & Garden Center take care of your sod installation needs, so you can relax and revel in the joy of your stunning new lawn. Contact us today to get started on your journey to a greener and more vibrant landscape.

Watering and Maintenance Tips for a Thriving Sod

By following these watering and maintenance tips, you can expect your new sod to flourish and create a lush and inviting landscape for your home.

1. Watering New Sod - The Key to Establishing Strong Roots

After we install sod on your lawn, proper watering is crucial for its successful establishment. During the initial two weeks, keep the sod consistently moist to encourage root growth.

Water your new sod daily, preferably in the early morning or late afternoon, when the temperatures are lower and the evaporation rate is reduced. Pay close attention to the edges and corners, ensuring they receive adequate hydration.

2. Install Sod over Old Grass - A Time-Saving Solution

If you have old grass that’s thin, patchy, or struggling to grow, installing new sod is a time-saving and effective solution. The fresh sod laid over the old grass forms a dense and even layer, revitalizing your lawn with lush greenery.

Our professionals ensure that the old grass is properly prepared before laying the sod, ensuring seamless integration and optimal results.

3. Watering Existing Grass before Sod Installation

Before installing new sod, we thoroughly water the existing grass to keep the soil underneath moist. This step ensures better root-to-soil contact when the sod is laid, enabling the roots to penetrate and anchor more easily. By maintaining the right level of moisture in the soil, we set the stage for a healthy and successful sod installation.

4. Proper Watering after Sod Installation

Once the new sod is laid, it’s essential to continue watering diligently during the first few weeks. Gradually reduce the frequency of watering as the roots take hold and the sod establishes itself.

Shift to a deep and infrequent watering schedule, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between watering sessions. This practice encourages the roots to grow deeper into the soil, making your lawn more resilient against drought conditions.

5. Sod Roll Quality - Essential for Healthy Growth

The quality of the sod roll you choose matters significantly for the health and appearance of your lawn. At Farrell’s Lawn & Garden Center, we source high-quality sod from reputable sod farms, ensuring that you receive fresh and vibrant sod rolls for your installation.

Our sod is delivered promptly to maintain its freshness and vitality, guaranteeing a smooth and successful sod installation process.

6. Maintenance Tips for a Vibrant Lawn

Beyond watering, maintaining your new sod is essential for a vibrant and healthy lawn. Regular mowing, at the recommended height for your specific grass type, promotes strong growth and prevents thatch buildup.

Applying starter fertilizer during the initial stages provides essential nutrients for root development. We equip you with a comprehensive maintenance plan, tailored to your lawn’s needs, to keep it looking its best year-round.
