If you are replacing your damaged lawn, there are 2 methods we recommend:
There are several steps to ensure sod is properly installed onto your lawn. The following points will help ensure a successful installation process.
Before placing your sod order, make sure the ground is completely prepped.
People who are not used to physical labour should take it slowly and, if required, seek assistance.
Locate a straight line, such as a curb or driveway, or stretch a taut string across the sodded area.
To make the first row, work along this line.
Smooth the area using a rake just before sodding.
Arrange in a brickwork pattern.
Ensure that all joints between the sods are tightly butted together and do not overlap. On steep slopes, staking is recommended.
Cut the sod using a knife to fit non-rectangular edges and small spots.
If you are unable to lay your sod right away, we recommend putting it in the shade and breaking the skid down into smaller piles (sod should be installed within 24 hours of delivery).
Use a roller to press the roots into the soil in the sodded area.
Soak the area in the water right away - wet the sod until the soil beneath it is moist. This should be done regularly for the next two weeks or until the sod has taken root.
10 to 14 days following the installation, start mowing. For the first two to three cuts, mow at the maximum setting, then gradually decrease the mower to the desired height over the next three to four cuts.
It's never too early to start planning your landscaping! For more information about our sod installation service in Barrie, please contact us.
