Soil Preparation for Sod

A successful sod installation begins with proper soil preparation. Using a sod cutter, we remove any grass or weeds and then enhance the soil with top soil and starter fertilizer to ensure a nutrient-rich foundation. The ground is leveled with a lawn roller to prevent any future issues with mud or water pooling.

Installing Artificial Grass

For artificial grass installation, the process involves laying a stable base layer, often composed of crushed rock or sand, to ensure proper drainage and stability. The turf is then rolled out, carefully trimmed, and secured. It’s crucial to avoid walking on the new turf installed for a few weeks to allow everything to settle properly and ensure the root system of any adjacent natural areas isn’t disturbed.
