A sod lawn has countless benefits for California homeowners. In addition to the ecological benefits like erosion control and removal of toxins from the air, laying fresh turfgrass adds instant curb appeal, increasing property value for El Dorado Hills homes. Whether you’re installing a sod lawn for aesthetics, play, or conservation, proper sod installation is crucial to developing a lush, healthy yard. Follow the Bell Sod Installation Guide to ensure a thriving Sacramento landscape.
When Bell Sod and Hydroseed makes a delivery, we take all care to make sure our customer’s receive fresh turfgrass. If you’re not able to install the sod immediately, take precautions to keep your new turfgrass hydrated and healthy.
- If possible, stack sod pallets out of direct sunlight
- On particularly hot days, spray sod with water, paying special attention to the grass toward the edges of each roll
- Always remove rocks, roll your yard, and prepare the soil before sod delivery to ensure faster sod installation
- Whenever possible, lay sod as soon as it’s delivered
Laying sod can be a challenge if you have a yard with jutting walkways, porches, or flowerbeds. Feel free to ask your Bell Sod and Hydroseed representative the best way to lay sod with the layout of your yard. Lay sod firmly, smoothing any bumps and making sure there are no gaps between newly laid sod and previously laid pallets.
