Placing down fresh sod is an excellent way to get the green grass you’ve been searching for. In a sense, you’re giving yourself a whole new lawn, without the waiting that usually comes with lawn care!
Sodding or re-sodding your lawn can also help with erosion, as the sod will attach itself to the soil and create a firm surface. We recommend Metairie and New Orleans residents reach out to All Terrain Landscape and Irrigation LLC following large storms or heavy rainfall, as this is typically when your lawn is in its most vulnerable state. Replacing your sod at the right time could be the difference between a lawn that struggles to keep its color, and one that is lush, green and healthy.
There are a few obstacles when dealing with a sodding project, namely irrigation systems, utility lines and pipes. These can disrupt the rooting process, so All Terrain Landscape and Irrigation LLC is meticulous when we examine your lawn. All Terrain Landscape and Irrigation LLC won’t waste your time – if we find any of these present we’ll work hard to find a solution. We want your lawn to flourish as much as you do, so we won’t cut any corners.
After we remove the existing lawn, the work really begins. We’ll carefully till the earth and remove any rocks, stones or other debris that may prevent the sod from fully taking. Next, we’ll assess the soil and, if necessary, give it a boost by adding in some compost. After that, we make sure that the lawn is level and even, so the finished product will be uniform. Sod is still an excellent and viable choice and there are different varieties of sod depending on the style and texture you choose.
Before All Terrain Landscape and Irrigation LLC lays down the layer of sod, we always make sure to put down a layer of fertilizer, which will give the sod a boost as it gets going. By using slow release fertilizer, the sod will receive extra nutrients over a sustained period of time, rather than in one short burst that will see accelerated growth and then stagnation.
The final step in the process is to lay down your new sod, and to wait for the fruits of your labor to pay off!
Before we lay down your new sod, All Terrain Landscape and Irrigation LLC will analyze the climate and conditions and find the type of sod best suited to your area. After all, what’s the point of going through all the steps to rejuvenate your lawn if in a few months you’ll be seeing the same problems as before?
Even within Metairie and New Orleans, we recommend different types of sod depending on where you live and how much time you’re able to dedicate to maintaining it. The different types and varieties that we use are: St. Augustine, Centipede, Bermuda Tifway 419 and Zoysia. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to lawn care, so All Terrain Landscape and Irrigation LLC takes your needs and schedule into account when recommending sod.
