Install your dream lawn
If you’re dreaming of the perfect 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 home 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:
- Grass is brown or dead
- Continuous lack of maintenance
- Grass has become too thin and weak
- Soil erosion and/or water damage
- Yard is overrun by weeds
- Lack of water, nutrition, fertilization
Whatever the reason, contact us and we will discuss our recommendations for your lawn, whether that be sod installation, aerating and overseeding or a lawn care maintenance plan.

Seeding v.s. sodding
We’re often asked by our customers, “should I seed or sod my lawn?”. Unfortunately, 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.
Sodding is much quicker as it is simply laying down grass that is already mature. Sodding offers instant gratification, 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.
Consulting with a professional yard service like Yard Smart is the best way to make a smart decision about seeding v.s. sodding and your lawn’s future. Contact us today for your free, no obligation estimate.

Everything about sod installation
How much does lawn sodding cost?
Several factors affect the price of sod installation, including the type of grass, the size of your yard, 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.

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.
