Every region has its own landscaping quirks. On the downside, that means what works for Better Homes and Gardens might make a mess of your Sacramento yard. On the upside, the area has plenty of professionals willing to share what they know about planting flower beds and installing sod in Northern California. Whether you’re a homeowner who wants a lush lawn, a contractor seeking that finishing touch for a new property, or a park manager who wants to provide the community with a safe place to play, you can be a victim of false information. Luckily Bell Sod and Hydroseed is here to help you cultivate a healthy Sacramento lawn.
Choose Sod Wisely
Choosing sod is the first step in any landscaping project, but many landscapers give it little thought. Choosing the wrong sod can have disastrous consequences, as evidenced by this local Sacramento park. They replaced vibrant, healthy turfgrass (forefront) with bermudagrass (background), a sod variety that’s not at all suited for the local climate.
Bell Sod prefers Dwarf Fescue Bluegrass, a blend of tall Fescue and Kentucky bluegrass that tolerates rain as well as drought. Its expansive root system establishes quickly, making Dwarf Blue Fescue the choice pick for erosion control, sustainability, and drought resistance.
Installing Sacramento Sod
Proper installation is part B of planning the perfect landscape. The best thing homeowners can do for their yards is to schedule an early morning sod delivery and install their new turfgrass as quickly as possible. Fresh sod establishes faster in a new landscape, and early morning installations prevent the hot spring sun from drying out grass. Bell Sod and Hydroseed delivers fresh-cut sod at your convenience. Call us a few days in advance and schedule your 7 or 8am sod delivery. Don’t forget to follow our Preparation and Lawn Care guides to ensure a healthy lawn after installation!
