BENEFITS OF SOD FOR YOUR HOME
For newly built homes, sod can be a quick way to transform a barren landscape into a gorgeous lawn that looks like it has been established for years.
For existing homeowners, sod provides you the option to put down a fresh, lush, green carpet to blanket your yard. The process is fast and results in polished looking yard.
Sometimes aeration and seeding are just not enough to get a good stand of turf established. If the soil is in really poor condition there will be a ton of weed growth. If there are more weeds then grass then organic lawn treatments are not enough and your lawn is in need of an aggressive plan. Weeds are indicators of poor soil health. If you have more weeds than grass then your soil needs a lot of help. Starting an organic fertilization & weed control program will help, but progress will be really slow. Fertilization programs are designed to improve and keep established grass healthy. To get healthy grass you have improve the soil. The best way to improve the soil is to till in compost.
Our Process For Installing A New Lawn
To provide a solid foundation and avoid the risk of weeds and other types of vegetation from competing with your new grass, we:
Remove the old turf and weeds from the area where we will be planting the new grass.
Prepare the area by removing large rocks and other debris.
Blend the native dirt and add additional soil and other nutrients to give the roots a fertile base to grow.
Finish grade the area by hand with rakes for greater precision and control.
Once your yard is prepped, our professional landscaping team lays the newly harvested, professional-grade sod and cuts-in the edges to give a well-manicured appearance. After that is completed, upkeep is relatively simple! Just set up regular watering on a routine schedule to encourage initial root growth to establish a healthy root system. Curious about the perfect watering schedule? When choosing the type of lawn to install, we will give you the best watering schedule for every lawn option.
SOD VS. SEED
Since North Carolina summers are so hot, seed has to be put down at just the right time of year to establish its root system. Since sod is already grown, it has a more forgiveness for the time of year installed and can be a great addition, under certain conditions, almost year round.
Aside from making your neighbors jealous and improving curb appeal almost overnight, there are lots of good reasons for adding sod to your yard.
Preventing Erosion: Since sod is only installed when it is fully-matured, it can immediately begin preventing erosion of your soil from storms, especially on hills and slopes.
Added Value: Many houses on the market can sell more quickly and for higher prices with a better-looking yard. The ease of adding sod and the time it takes can often be a great solution when selling a house.
Fast Solution: Most home projects can be completed in just a matter of days and at almost any time during the year. If weather conditions are right, a yard can even be used for active use within a matter of weeks.
Requires Less Water: When installed, sod requires about half the amount of water that seeding does. With water at such a premium during certain seasons in North Carolina, this is often a great advantage for getting a lawn to establish its root system.
There are advantages to both sod and seed. Sod is fast. In as little as one day you can have a new lawn. Warm season turf, such as zoysia and Bermuda are best established by sod. Seeding is not as fast, but the grass is stronger when it comes up because it’s never been transplanted from one growing spot to the next. Seed is also a bit more economical. Some grass types such as shady fescue blends are not available in sod.
