If you’ve got a yard that’s showing wear and tear, or is overrun with weeds, chances are good you’re ready to sod your lawn for a gorgeous new look. While fall may not seem like the ideal time to lay sod – with the cooling weather and grayer days – it’s actually the perfect season for sodding a lawn.
Sodding in the autumn months is key. Not only are the sun’s rays less harsh than in the spring and summer months, but fall means you won’t have to water your lawn through winter. Not only is it a convenient time to sod, it’s the best time.
Once the sod is laid and watered, it can be established quickly. If you are unfamiliar with the process, sodding is essentially transplanting a mature turf that has been cared for by a professional to a new lawn and planting it in the soil. Once it’s laid, the sod is essentially ready to go.
In fact, one of the perks to having a sod lawn is that it provides an immediate and perfect landscape. When it comes to getting a thick luscious lawn, nothing beats sod. We lay it in and within a couple of weeks you have a well-established and healthy yard that's naturally resistant to diseases, pest infestations, and weeds.
There’s so much convenience to having a sod lawn, and with the upcoming winter months, the soil is rich and fertile for it to have optimal growth and establishment. The earth is primed and temperatures are dipping, so the sun won’t overwhelm the sod as we move into the colder months.
If you’re considering upgrading your lawn from a dreary or dying grass to a lush and vibrant one, fall is the time to sod.
