At Wake Landscapes, we know great curb appeal begins with the basics. Proper and professionally installed sod and landscape plants are an important part of ensuring you have a beautiful, well-maintained lawn and landscaping that provides pleasing aesthetics and positively influences your property value.
Reasons for Having Sod Installed & the Process of Laying It
There are many reasons homeowners choose to install sod on their property. For some, much of their lawn has died off and over 50% of it has no chance of returning. For others, sod is installed during the reconstruction of landscaping beds or as an entirely new lawn for a newly built home.
Whichever is your reason for installing sod, the ground needs to be properly leveled and old grass needs to be removed. Using a sod-cutter, we shave the grass down evenly where the new sod is to be laid. Occasionally, rakes and shovels are needed to assist in preparing your property. Once the ground is level, we are able to lay the sod in strips along your property.
Proper Watering of Sod After Installation
You have to water your turfgrass for the next 7-21 days to maintain hydration and help the new grass take root. If the sod were to dry out, you could lose your new lawn. Over the first few weeks, it is critical to retain approximately 1.5 inches of water on the lawn at all times.
Once the grass has taken root, watering can be scaled back to only once or twice per week, which would be consistent with a regular lawn mowing and maintenance schedule.
