What Is Sod and Sodding?
Sod, which is also known as turf, is simply grass that’s grown and cultivated by local suppliers that’s installed on new or existing properties to create a fresh lawn. Squares of sod are connected by the soil and roots of the grass. Sod usually comes in large rolls that are measured out based on the land mass to be covered.
The act of sodding involves laying out the sod and ensuring it’s properly installed onto the empty space provided. Our professional landscape maintenance team will work hard to guarantee that your new lawn gets all of the nourishment and water it needs to continuously thrive.
When Is the Best Time to Install New Sod?
Ideally, the best time of year for lawn replacement or new sod applications is during the growing season. This includes spring and early autumn because the combination of cooler temperatures and occasional rainfalls facilitates the deep rooting of the sod. Of course, sod can also be laid down in the summertime. If you choose to do this, it’s vital that you water your lawn at least once a day for about three hours. The additional moisture will seep its way deep into the ground and prevent your new grass from drying out. This creates the perfect cool underground environment for roots to spread and take hold.
What Our Professional Sodding Services Can Do for You
At FOREVER GREEN LAWN & LANDSCAPE INC., we don’t believe in leaving your sod hanging out to dry. That’s why we offer a full range of property management and lawn maintenance services that are guaranteed to provide a long lifespan for your grass. Our comprehensive services include:
- Grounds maintenance and management. From schools, restaurants, and sports arenas to hotels, commercial buildings, and residential properties, we offer full scale lawncare services to ensure the health and longevity of your outdoor space.
- Professional garden care. The next step after properly installing sod is creating a beautiful landscape for your property to go along with it. Our team of expert landscapers can make plant shrub and flower recommendations to suit your preferences, the local climate, and the aesthetic of your lawn.
- Irrigation. A brand-new lawn requires a fully functional irrigation system. If your irrigation system is in need of repair or replacement, our experienced landscapers can administer the necessary repairs or make recommendations for a new one.
- Lawn maintenance. Once your new lawn is installed and starting to take root, it needs proper maintenance to stay healthy. Tractor mowing, hedge cutting, weed control, and scarification can help you achieve the aesthetic you want for your property.
What Is the Average Cost of Sod Per Square Foot?
There are a lot of factors that determine the cost of sodding. On average, a single large roll of sod costs about 28 to 45 cents per square foot. Of course, the cost also depends on the size of your property, how many rolls are needed, and the quality of the sod.
Premium-quality sod that’s more sustainable costs more than cheaper options that are usually sold at major retailers. While it’s certainly less expensive to install the sod yourself, getting it professionally done is a much better idea. With our expert sod installation services, you get our 100% service and product quality guarantee. We’ll also take care of all of the maintenance work for you to ensure that your grass stays green for as long as possible.
To prove that we mean serious business when it comes to proper sod installation, we always take the time to schedule in-person consultations with our clients. Only after thoroughly surveying your land, property size, and specifications can we offer you a fair quote for your sodding and property maintenance project.
Our Sodding Process
From start to finish, we believe in providing our clients in Toronto and the GTA with top-quality products and services. We’ll explain and keep you informed of each and every single step throughout the process. Keep in mind that the sod installation process varies from one property to another. What works for one property might not work for yours and that’s why we always schedule that all-important initial consultation.
Our landscapers like to get a strong sense of what they have to work with before making any promises. After thoroughly inspecting the land, we’ll determine and map out the specifics of the project.
First, we remove the existing dead grass and debris if there is any. If the property is already bare, then we go straight to testing the pH balance (acidity and alkalinity levels) in the soil and measuring the square footage of the area to be covered. If it’s too strong our too weak for the type of sod that’s being used, then we’ll neutralize it.
The next step is to carefully grade the earth where the new sod will be laid so that it has ample below-ground channels to root and to allow for excess water drainage. Then the sod is carefully laid down roll by roll.
