Our Sod Installation Process

Pre-Installation Preparation

Before installing sod, our team thoroughly assesses the site to determine any underlying issues. We remove any debris, rocks, or weeds that may interfere with the sod installation process.

Site Inspection and Assessment

We examine the soil quality and drainage to ensure the sod will thrive in its new environment. Our team also considers sunlight, shade, and traffic factors when choosing the right sod variety for your property.

Soil Preparation

We ensure the soil is properly prepared for sod installation by testing for nutrient deficiencies and correcting them as needed. This step involves soil aeration, leveling, and grading for proper drainage and water retention.

Sod Selection and Ordering

We carefully select high-quality sod suited to your location, soil type, and maintenance requirements. We work with trusted suppliers to source fresh, healthy sod that will establish quickly and thrive in your environment.

Delivery and Storage

We transport the sod to your location and store it in a cool, shaded area to maintain its freshness and quality until it is ready to be installed.

Laying Sod

Our team of professionals carefully lays the sod in a staggered pattern, ensuring no gaps or overlaps between the pieces. We also ensure the edges are tightly butted together to create a seamless look.

Soil Compaction

We compact the soil to ensure that the roots of the sod have good contact with the soil for optimal growth.

Watering and Fertilization

We thoroughly water the sod to help it establish roots in its new environment. We also fertilize the sod to promote healthy growth and root development.

Post-Installation Care

To make sure that your newly installed sod stays healthy and green for longer, we offer detailed after-care and maintenance, including the following:


With our effective irrigation system, your lawn will get the necessary moisture it needs to stay healthy without any water wastage. 


Mowing is an important part of sod maintenance. We ensure your sod is mowed appropriately to an optimum height. 


We apply fertilizer to the sod to promote growth and maintain its health.

Weed Control:

We control weeds using safe and effective methods to prevent them from competing with your sod for nutrients and water.

Pest Management:

We use safe and effective methods to control pests that may damage your lawn and affect its appearance.

How often should I water my new sod?

Sod must be watered daily for almost a week after installation. Watering your sod in the morning is better so the roots can absorb some of the water before nighttime. This will help prevent those pesky puddles that form when it rains.

When can I mow my newly installed sod?

You can start mowing your grass within two weeks of installation. However, we recommend waiting until after your first mowing to see if there are any issues.

What is the best time of year to install sod?

The best time of year to install sod is between April and September! That said, we can also install sod year-round depending on how much snowfall you get in your area.

Fred's Landscaping did a fantastic job cleaning up our yard. We had years of leaves piled up. They made short work of what felt like a never ending task when we attempted to clear it ourselves. Fred was very knowledgable and gave us several options for a few other ideas we had. I would highly recommend their services.

Had an awesome experience working with Fred and his team. They were on time, delivered exactly what we had envisioned, and more. They went the extra mile by clearing out the sides of the property and the results looked fantastic. We unfortunately didn't take any before pictures, but the area looks wonderful and it was even completed early! Will be going back to them for any future landscaping projects, for sure!

Excellent experience with Fred and his friendly team. Easy to work with and share our design ideas as well. Fred really knows his plants/flowers and shares his knowledge about what works in the space and how to maintain the landscaping after. He was also mindful of our dog and cat and chose plants accordingly. Price was reasonable and done on time. Highly recommended.

Fred has been caring for my yard for over two years. He and his crew have consistently gone above and beyond expectations. They cut, edge, and clean the area of clippings weekly. Even my patio looks great after they removed the weeds between the pavers. ?

Fred and his crew were amazing. Fred kept me apprised of everything he was doing. He pruned my trees, pulled up dead and unwanted bushes, cleaned up leaves, mulched and mowed for a great price. He even got rid of snakes. Yikes! His crew was on time and cared for my yard like it was their own lawn. I really liked that they didn't rush. They took time to finish details. Most definitely will be my permanent lawn care crew. Thanks Fred!
