Why do you need sod installation services in Scarborough? It’s fast, protects your property, keeps things looking nice, and adds interest to your landscape.
With Sodding, There’s No Wait Time
New sod installation entails a landscaping company coming and physically rolling out sheets of nursery-raised healthy grass across the bare dirt left after pulling up the existing grass. There is no time spent with bare patches waiting for the grass seeds to take root and grow. There is also no time spent watering or protecting the exposed grass seeds.
The absence of grass seeds means much less hassle for anyone who has sod installed. Sod also can be walked on much quicker than grass seeds or other methods. Yard Smart handles the delivery and installation of your sod rolls.
Then, it comes as a strip of healthy and uniform-length grass that requires no direct action from the sod can fit easily into a person’s otherwise busy life.

Sod Installation Prevents Soil Erosion
New sod, when installed, already has an interweaving root system. All the roots need to do is reach into the soil under it. Once Yard Smart installs your sod, even on a slope, it holds its position no matter what. The sod installation process itself is quite simple and fast.
Sod is hugely resistant to soil erosion and deeper ground erosion alike. In general, its corrosion-resistant properties may account for sod being widely used to cover hillsides and other uneven terrains. We love installing new sod for aesthetic purposes, but that’s not the only benefit.
Places that suffer from a higher concentration of harsh weather benefit from sod over grass seed or naturally growing grass due to the need for a sturdy root system. Sturdy roots prevent the entire hillside from sagging and exposing dirt and mud beneath. Sod can even prevent mudslides to some degree.

Weeds Cannot Grow Through Sod
Since sod is pure grass, and because the roots are already interconnected, weeds have difficulty growing on a lawn with sod. Weeds need seeds, which need to be transported by the wind or some other means; this is impossible with a large lawn of sod. Weeds also need to put down roots; this is too difficult due to the roots’ established network.
While Yard Smart is happy to address your weed problems, sod is a helpful preventative, too.
Weeds will eventually find their way into the dirt through the sod, but it will take much longer and be much less of a problem than natural grass. Things like crabgrass will also be completely unable to grow because they require a large grass patch to put down roots.

Sod Installation Scarborough
When a property owner buys grass seeds or buys a naturally grassy property, they are saddled with whatever local grass species will grow in their area. While this often means that the grass survives naturally with the area’s typical rainfall and temperature their area has, this grass may require more maintenance in other ways.
A landscaper or property owner may want a grass species that requires less watering or grows slower than the native grass. A grass that grows slower or needs less water may have a more challenging time filling in naturally in their area. For these situations, sod installation is a quick and easy way to ensure that a property has the exact kind of grass they want.
Everything About Sod Installation in Scarborough
The following are some frequently asked questions about sod installation in Scarborough
How do I know what kind of grass I need?
Any landscaper overseeing a property will give an insightful recommendation of a grass species that will be suited for an environment. More arid climates where there is little rainfall will require grass that requires less, for instance. The critical thing to remember is that many human-made grass species exist in the world, which often works much better in addition to naturally-occurring grass species.
As stated, the exact right species of grass for an individual depends on the environment they live in. The best advice is to consult an experienced landscaper at Yard Smart. Our team can help determine what the best sod installation is for your Scarborough yard.
How long does new sod take to establish?
Sodding is among the quickest ways to establish a new and fresh green lawn. Once sod installation ends, the sod only takes two to four days to develop fully. After four days of letting the sod sit, it can be walked on and even mowed without any issue whatsoever. In the case of some specific grass species, it may be prudent to wait slightly longer to mow or spray with pesticides due to specifics in how it grows.
Sod installation ensures that every last blade of grass in the roll is healthy and able to put down roots in the soil under it. Yard Smart installs your sod, then a few days later, you can start enjoying it. The entire installation process is quick and easy, and hassle-free in terms of waiting for seeds to grow or adding fill dirt to your landscape.
Can Yard Smart just fill in a small area of sod?
Sod installation in Scarborough does not only mean large rolls of grass rolling out across an entire yard. If a small area of a property suffers from damaged grass, that little area can easily be patched by a smaller piece of lawn sod.
Yard Smart can install lawn sod in a range of sizes and configurations. Our team surveys your property, measures carefully, and brings the right amount of sod (i.e. lawn replacement) to cover everything from a bare patch to an entire yard.
Isn’t sod installation just astroturfing?
The simple answer is no. Astroturf is entirely synthetic; sod is natural, “real” grass that a landscaper delivers in a huge roll. While the nature of sod installation may make it look synthetic, it is not. Sod comes from nurseries that produce it in large patches or strips with some dirt attached to their roots. When it comes time to transport the sod, it can be rolled for ease of transport and installation.
Sod installation is a quick and effective way to get healthy and lush grass coverage across any area and allows property owners a larger degree of freedom with far less hassle than grass seeds would. In more ways than one, it is the superior option, and Yard Smart is proud to offer sod installation and sod replacement services in Scarborough to start sprucing up your landscape.
