Find Out How Sod Gives Immediate Results

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 16 May , 2018

A recent TV news report took viewers behind the scenes of a sod farm. “We’re a true farm,” the owner said. “We’re raising grass, but we’re still a true farm because we do everything that a farm would do.”

Sod is a fantastic remedy for many homeowners who are dealing with rough patches in existing lawns or who merely want to start with a blank canvas.

In this issue, we’ll talk more about sod, including its numerous advantages and best times to have it installed.

What’s the best time to lay sod?

Because the topography in our area is so variable, there is a host of different types of sod available. In addition, because of our Mediterranean climate, you should be able to have sod successfully installed at your San Diego home practically any time of the year when the ground isn’t frozen.

The ideal time, however, is when the daytime temperatures are on the cool side. If you decide to have your sod installed in the throes of a blazing summer, the hot temperatures can easily throw your sod into shock and dry it out.

What are the pros and cons of installing sod?

Among the many pros for sod are:

  • The instant results (of course, it may be a few days before your new sod is ready for foot traffic, but the freshly laid lawn will almost surely give you a sense of immediate gratification);
  • Little-to-no weeds will be in your new lawn;
  • The fully grown sod prevents erosion in your lawn nearly the moment its installed; and
  • The value of your home is improved – often as much as 15% to 20%.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
