Sodding

(Lawn installation)

   As growing landscaping company, we are proud to provide our sodding (lawn/ sod replacement) services to Greater Toronto Area residential and commercial properties.

   Sodding (Lawn/ sod installation) is the quickest and most reliable mean of establishing a lawn.

 

Sod is the grass that is cut from a well-established field of grass and placed at other locations. Sod covers the soil completely and virtually eliminates evaporation of water from the soil and loss of soil by erosion.

 

Sod from local farms is ready for planting when it is 12-14 months old. It needs to be mature enough so the pieces will hold together. Thinly cut sod will root faster than sod with a lot of soil beneath the foliage and thin thatch layer.

Benefits from sodding are:

  • Provides immediate erosion control on a steep slope;

  • Fresh and healthy sod increases the property value and overall aesthetic of the home;

  • Reduces pollution level and generates oxygen;

  • Absorbs sunlight and helps cooling your house during the summer season;

  • Reduces noise level and creates safe environment for kids and pets;

  • A high quality turf/ sod is available for use much more quickly than with other methods and there is less investment of time and work by the homeowner;

  • Sod can be installed almost anytime (in contrast to seeding ) the ground isn’t frozen from mid-April through the end of November. Green Warriors avoid installing sod so late in the winter that the root system doesn’t have time to penetrate the soil adequately before the soil freezes;

The installation process of new sod:

1. Remove and dispose of any existing grass/ lawn by trimming or cutting it with special equipment (commercial grade sod cutter). The sod cutter is a machine with a blade that is inserted into the turf and peels off about 3 inches of sod.

2. Adding topsoil and leveling.

As grass is a living organism, it needs a bed of healthy topsoil to root in. Also very important in the sod installation  is to ensure that the land slopes correctly to avoid any puddling of water after a rainfall.

3. Rolling the area and final levelling.

A sod roller is a heavy drum that is filled with water and can be pushed, using a handle, across the lawn to help the sod make good contact with the soil.

4. Laying down new sod (turf rolls) and rolling again to remove air pockets under the sod strips and to press the roots firmly into the soil. If air pockets are not removed, they can potentially result in drying of the root system, causing dead spots on the surface.

Our sod is always fresh, cut out, and delivered to your home on the same day of installation project.
