Installation of Sod Up to 2000 sq ft
Installation of sod purchased and delivered through our company Up to 2000 square feet. Our sod installation crew will deliver the sod on a pallet, take the sod from the pallet, install it onto the level dirt area, and use a sod roller to roll the grass after installation. Standard practice being our Semi Truck will arrive before our crew or at the same time and deliver the sod. Our installation crew will then load the sod with wheelbarrows, transport it to the lawn area, and install the sod. After installation, our team will cut out the perimeter or border of the sod lawn, take the leftover scraps, load them into our truck and roll the area to ensure direct contact of soil and sod. Grab the pallets, and any remaining sod, load everything up and then proceed to deal with taking care of the waste, leaving you an instant lawn. Just add water.
Water, Water, Water, keep that sod wet in the day and let it dry out in the evening. You want the sod to feel like a sponge, wet enough to keep roots growing but enough air to let it breathe at night. 3-4 times daily for 10-15 minutes if on a sprinkler system average. Check the lawn daily for 2-3 weeks watering early in the morning and afternoon and never at night unless bone dry and looking damaged or wilted. Overwatering can lead to root rot down the road, but this amount of water on your sod is acceptable if the lawn can breathe.
Sod installation service does Not include tear out of the old lawn, soil preparation, or grading. Our focus at Sod and Seed Inc. is prioritizing farming sod and sod delivery. Our installation staff is specialized in cutting sod and laying sod. Due to the weight and sheer amount of work needed alone for sod production, we, unfortunately, can not provide other services aside from delivery and installation.
For All sod installations, we recommend using a sod and seed starter fertilizer to speed up the rooting process and give the grass the best chance at building the deepest root early on. Our Sod and Seed Starter fertilizer is meant for grass seed and sod and can be used safely on the lawn any time of the year.
Some sod types may seasonally not be able to provide installation due to weather conditions, heavy rain, or being sold out. Always check our sod product page to check if the sod delivery is currently available. Please give us one-week advance notice before sod delivery and sod installation, so we have time to coordinate our staff properly.
