Sodding a New Lawn

Sodding is the fast way to start a new lawn, sod can be installed almost any time and will be ready to be enjoyed in as little as 3 weeks.

Sodding doesn’t take a great deal of care. Sod can be installed where seeding may be difficult to do, such as in slopes or high traffic areas. 

We use only freshly harvested sod, of the highest quality, ordered and delivered directly from a local grower to the job site. The sod available in Ontario is 100 percent Kentucky Blue and accustomed to Ontario weather and environment.

Before laying down sod, as well as planting seeds, we see that the soil is properly prepared and conditioned, for the grass to grow strong roots, to form a mature, healthy lawn.

The Sodding job that we provide involves:

Removing the weeds and debris from the area to be sodded

Roto-tilling the area to loosen the soil, adding a high quality soil, rich in organic matter. Grading, levelling and adding top soil, if necessary.

Add a fertilizer that is high in phosphorus to promote rapid root growth, anchoring and blade   development to get the newly planted grass roots to knit with the surface soil

Lightly rolling the surface of the area to be sodded to create a smooth, uniform area to lay the sod. Then watering the area so that it is moist thoroughly to a depth of about 6 inches. Laying the sod in the moist area evenly, then lightly rolling the sod surface again, this time to get the air in between out, so that the sod roots make good contact with the soil.

After the sodding job is done, the customer must water the sod. It is imperative that the sodded area is kept constantly moist, until the roots take hold to the soil underneath and begin to anchor, this will take watering the sod at least 3 times daily for about 3 weeks.

If the sod is not kept constantly moist for at least 3 weeks after planting, the grass roots will not knit to the soil below, resulting in the sod drying out.                                        

Price: $2.50  per sq.ft. plus GST sod, soil and fertilizer are included.

Grading, levelling and amendments if necessary, is charged extra.
