Sodding for a great first impression
Your business’ success depends on a great first impression. If you’re looking for a healthy, perfectly manicured lawn, and don’t want to wait for new grass to grow, sodding is an excellent option. While often our customers have moved into a newly constructed commercial property and need to lay down new grass, there are several other reasons why an entire lawn (or at least large sections) may need to be replaced; these include:
- Continuous lack of maintenance
- Grass is thin, weakened, brown or dead
- Soil erosion orr water damage
- Lawn is overrun by weeds
- Lack of water, nutrition or fertilization
Whatever the reason, contact us and we will discuss our recommendations for your commercial lawn, whether that be sod installation, aerating and overseeding or a complete lawn care maintenance plan.
Let’s get your grass growing
We take the following steps for your sod installation project:
- Step 1: Get rid of any existing grass and weeds, if applicable, using specialized equipment
- Step 2: Prepare the site by levelling and grading the ground for proper drainage
- Step 3: Spread healthy topsoil to establish a strong base
- Step 4: Lay and roll fresh sod
- Step 5: Give an adequate amount of water to the new sod
- Step 6: Leave care instructions for your new sod
All of our sod installation projects are completed in a timely and efficient manner to minimize any disruption or inconvenience to you, your customers/clients and your staff.
To seed or sod
Customers often ask us if they should seed or sod their commercial lawn. The most significant difference between seeding and sodding is the time it takes to establish your lawn. Sodding is much quicker and offers instant gratification, as it is simply laying down grass that is already grown. It can be installed at any point during spring, summer or fall and is usually weed-free. Seeding takes a bit longer to establish as the grass needs to gross, but it is a less expensive option. Contact us today for your free, no obligation estimate and we can discuss whether seeding or sodding makes more sense based on your commercial landscape goals and specific situation.

Everything about lawn sodding
How much does commercial lawn sodding cost?
The cost for our commercial lawn sodding services depends on several factors, like the size of your property, the type of terrain, the amount of prep work necessary (i.e. removing any existing grass) and any other additional landscaping services you’d like to bundle it with. Contact us today to further discuss and get your free, no obligation estimate.
When is the best time for sod installation?
The beauty of sod is that it can be installed whenever during the growing season, as opposed to seeding which requires a specific temperature. However, we typically recommend to our customers that the best time to lay down sod is typically spring or fall when the temperatures are slightly cooler and grass continues to grow.
How long will it take new sod to root?
It depends on several factors, like the type of grass used, time of year, climate, pH factor of the soil, sun exposure, water, etc. We usually see sod taking root in about 2 to 6 weeks.
Should I seed or sod my lawn?
There isn’t an easy answer as it depends on your yard, your landscaping goals and how much time and money you want to invest. The most significant difference between seeding and sodding is the time it takes to establish your lawn. To get great grass fast, sod is your best choice. It can yield a beautiful lawn quickly, can be installed at any point during the growing season and is usually weed-free. With seeding, the initial establishment takes longer, but it is less expensive and you have more grass varieties to choose from.
