Benefits of Using Sod Grass
Sod is sections of established living grass connected by a root system or other biodegradable material. Sod is more expensive than seeding as a landscaping option. However, choosing sod has many advantages over using seed, including:
- You don’t have to wait for your lawn to grow
- You can walk on your property soon after installation
- Sod eliminates the dust, mud and erosion that come with seeding
- Your yard is weed-free because it’s been growing in a controlled environment
- You don’t have to water as often as seeds
- Sod is effective at establishing a lawn on slopes and inclines
Our experts will install your sod quickly and cleanly, and we’ll advise you on how best to take care of your sod so that it establishes roots and becomes a healthy lawn.
Professional Sod Installation Services
Sod takes careful preparation to ensure the roots stay healthy and the grass gets the nutrients it needs to grow thick and green. The professionals at ArborCare prepare the sod and the ground to ensure the grass has the best growing conditions.
Properly preparing and grading the topsoil is an essential part of sod installation that DIYers often overlook. Moreover, the type of topsoil will impact how well your sod grows. ArborCare lawn care professionals know Calgary’s climate and soil, and they’ll choose the best topsoil and grass types for your property.
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about sod.
You can lay sod any time during the growing season, provided the ground isn’t frozen. However, the best time of year for sod installation is spring or early fall, when temperatures are cooler. Sod is best laid when temperatures are between 16 C and 26 C. Summer installation requires heavy watering to ensure the grass doesn’t dry out and die.
