We Use A Sod Farm Local To Williamsburg Area
Before we get into the benefits and facts about sod installation, we’d like to let you know that our sod installs come from a local sod farm. Sod is perishable. The sooner it is taken off the trailer and installed, the better.
Using a local sod farm allows us to obtain the sod quickly and get it to the job site. Limiting the sod’s exposure to elements that will dry it out is key!
Sod Installation Benefits
Having a relatively instant lawn is the main benefit of sod installation. Undergoing seeding a new property can take a lot of time to see a thick and lush result.
Additionally, sodding doesn’t require as much maintenance as the seeding route. Seeding takes a lot of time, attention, and care to get a particular result.
Sod provides a property with instant erosion control. Erosion control is the soil’s ability to keep in nutrients that help the grass survive and thrive.
Imagine a rainstorm is coming down, and your new lawn has had a quality sod installed. Those nutrients are holding firm!
Now, think about a downpour after a new lawn seeding. All those nutrients are flowing out into the street! There is nothing there to keep them in. You’ll have to get back out there and give it more time and attention when the rain stops.
If you hate weeds, you’re going to love this benefit. Quality sod will have little to no weed presence when placed. Once placed, it will suck up all the nutrients starving out weeds attempting to get a foothold.
In addition to instant eye appeal, sod also offers a short time before it’s ready for use from people and pets. You won’t have to buy or create all those “Stay Off My Lawn” signs like you would if you were trying to establish a lawn by seeding.
What Time of Year Should Sod Be Installed?
Sod installations can take place any time of the year. However, there are two windows of time that are generally best.
Late Summer / Early Fall and Spring are usually the best times to lay sod in the Williamsburg area.
Can it be done in the middle of the summer? Technically, yes, it could be, but the summer provides a lot of elements that can stress sod before and after installation. It’s best to avoid mid-summer sod installations.
What Does A Sod Install Include
First, we will remove every bit of your old sod and take it far away so you don’t have to look at it again!
We prepare the soil for the new sod, paying attention to sloped areas and any unique landforms present.
When the sod truck rolls in, we get to work placing the sod, making sure all the roots contact the soil we prepared.
When completed, we’ll let you know the steps to take to ensure your sod takes root and provides you with lush green looks for years to come.
