Installation Tips

1) Prior to delivery of your sod, make sure all ground is level and free from debris. If you are contracting for grading, make sure it is completed before your sod is delivered.

2) Install your lawn immediately upon delivery. Turf is a living plant that requires ground contact and
moisture to survive!

3) Begin installing turf along the longest straight line, such as a driveway or sidewalk. Butt and push edges and ends against each other tightly, without stretching. Avoid gaps or overlaps. Stagger the joints in each row in a brick-like fashion, using a large sharp knife to trim corners, etc. Avoid leaving small strips at outer edges as they will not retain moisture. On slopes, place the turf pieces across the slope.

4) As soon as you are able to start watering without interfering with your work, do so. Do not wait until you are completely done with your entire lawn to start watering. The longer the sod is installed without receiving water the greater the chance of problems.

5) Water to the point of soil saturation under the sod. We recommend leaving a sprinkler in one area for a minimum of 30 minutes, picking up the sod to see if the dirt under the sod is wet and then continuing to water if necessary until dirt is wet under sod.

6) For further information on watering and mowing newly installed sod check out our  
maintenance and care page.  

7)  If you don't feel comfortable installing the lawn yourself call our office and have one of our professional installers do the work for you.
