In some cases, seeding isn’t the best option for improving or establishing a lawn. In times like this, CM’s will often recommend installing sod onto the existing soil. This might also include preparing the soil with additional aeration, soil amendments or other measures to maximize the sod’s chances of successfully establishing itself.
We have access to various high-quality sources of sod and we can find just the right type for your site. Our professional installers have years of experience laying sod to marry it seamlessly to other softscape and hardscape elements of your landscaping.
Consistent and even watering is essential for helping sod establish itself and continue to thrive. For new sod, it’s better to thoroughly water two or more times per day, rather than simply one massive soaking. Of course, our extreme Nebraska weather conditions and the timing of the season can also be major factors. Our experienced sod installers and knowledgeable experts can help you understand the watering strategy that is best to help your sod thrive.
Healthy turn needs proper aeration to allow grass seed roots to thrive. Soil that has been compacted or choked with old thatch struggles to provide adequate oxygen, water, and other important nutrients to the root base. A properly aerated lawn allows grass to absorb nutrients allowing the turf to thrive.
If you suspect your lawn needs aeration, you can check by inserting a standard screwdriver into the soil. If the turn resists, you likely need aeration to allow the turf to accept water and other nutrients before it suffers more distress.
