Having a beautiful lawn is important to a lot of people, but it can be a frustrating process that takes a lot of time and energy. One great alternative to waiting for your grass to grow is to opt for sod installation instead. With sod installation, you can have a beautiful, lush lawn in one day!

Precision Maintenance, by Clifford Suppa and Jhesse Jones, is skilled and experienced at sod installation, and the company is highly respected in the New York communities of Rockville Centre, Baldwin, Oceanside, and Long Island.

What Is Sod?

You’ve probably heard of sod before, but not everyone is familiar with what it is. In essence, sod is a layer of grass and soil that’s held together by the root system of the grass. Basically, sod is grass that’s been grown elsewhere for the purpose of being brought to your front lawn! It’s a great way to cut out the extra waiting time (and resources) that you’d have to put into growing your lawn from scratch. Eventually, the roots in the sod will take hold of the earth below, and your lawn will be thriving.

What Are the Benefits Of Using Sod?

There are a ton of benefits to having sod installed in your yard (or commercial property), and many of them go beyond aesthetic reasons. Here are some examples of why you should consider sod installation:

  • Sod can improve the water and air quality in the direct vicinity.
  • Sod can help prevent and correct erosion on hillsides.
  • Sod can aid in water irrigation of an area. This means that the sod helps drain standing water and prevent flooding.
  • Sod can help cool an area.
  • Sod can immediately create a lawn in areas where the alternative methods aren’t feasible.

On top of all these reasons, did you know you can even use sod when building houses? As a fun fact, many homes in Scandinavia have roofs made of sod, creating a beautiful and nature-forward appearance.

What Is the Process Of Sod Installation?

Sod installation is relatively straightforward, but it requires a lot of expertise and know-how to get just right. This is one of the many reasons why you should use a professional landscaping company like Precision Maintenance by Clifford Suppa and Jhesse Jones for your sod installation. Having a team of experienced professionals working hard on your sod installation will yield beautiful and long-lasting results. When you hire us for your sod installation in Rockville Centre, Baldwin, Oceanside, or Long Island, here’s what you can expect:

Prepping The Area

Before we can install your new sod, we need to make sure the area of installation is free and clear of old grass and weeds. This will help your sod take root upon installation. We’ll then look closely at the quality of your soil and amend it if necessary. This basically means churning up your soil and adding organic material to increase available nutrients and make it easier for roots to penetrate.

Installing The Sod

Once your soil is ready, we’ll begin installing the sod. Our years of experience allow us to install sod efficiently and expertly, using only the best practices. After the sod has been installed (time will vary based on the size of your lawn), we’ll set up sprinklers or another form of irrigation to make sure your new sod gets as much water as it needs.

How Do You Care for Fresh Sod?

Once your sod has been installed, your professional from Clifford Suppa Landscaping will give you thorough instructions on how to care for your beautiful new lawn. Here’s a quick breakdown of what to expect:

Week 1

  • Never allow the sod to get dried out, but make sure you’re not overwatering. To achieve this balance, water your new sod 3-4 times per day for 5-10 minute periods.
  • Don’t water your sod in the evening or night.
  • Don’t walk on your sod for a minimum of 2 weeks.

Week 2

  • Water your sod for 30 minutes every day.
  • You may need to water twice daily on some days.

Week 3 +

  • You can now start mowing your lawn but keep the mower deck in a high position.
  • On week 6, fertilize your new sod.

Once your sod has been installed, you’ll need to be diligent in how you care for it, so be sure to follow all instructions.
