If you are looking around your yard and realizing it needs a complete overhaul, or if you have recently purchased a property with bare soil, then you may want to consider sod installation. Laying sod down is the only way that you will see instant results with bright green grass.
Our top-rated sod installation services are available to residential and commercial properties throughout the Portland, OR area, including Gresham, Troutdale, Happy Valley, and more.
There are several methods to creating new grass, including sod installation, grass seeding, and hydroseeding. If you opt for seeding, you will have to be patient as it will take longer for the seeds to grow and start establishing themselves.
Sod, on the other hand, is already grown and will immediately start to form deeper, stronger roots upon installation so long as it receives proper care. Benefits of sod include:
Keep in mind, sod installation does cost more than seeding due to extra labor and other costs, but it will give you a gorgeous lawn without much maintenance on your part.
In the Portland, OR area, it is generally recommended to use cool-season grasses as they have the best chance of thriving here. At J&C Lawn Care, we opt to use either perennial ryegrass or tall fescue sod as these are both strong types of grass.
Once we have prepped the area and installed your new sod, there are some guidelines you will need to follow in order to keep it properly maintained. For the first 14 days, you will need to stay off the sod while it creates a strong root system. Any weight on the sod risks soil compaction, which hinders the root growth. Other guidelines include:
It is also recommended to put down a fertilizer treatment during this time to feed the lawn.
