    The Sod Installation Process

    Laying SodStart by laying the sod along a straight edge, such as a driveway or sidewalk. Stagger the seams in a brick-like pattern to avoid gaps and ensure a seamless look.

    Watering SodProper watering is crucial during the first few weeks after installation. Water the sod immediately after installation and continue to keep it moist until it establishes roots.

    First MowingWait until the sod has rooted into the soil before mowing. Set the mower to a higher setting to avoid cutting the grass too short, which can stress the new sod.

    Post-Installation Care

    Watering ScheduleAfter the initial watering, follow a consistent watering schedule to keep the sod moist but not waterlogged. Gradually reduce the frequency of watering as the sod establishes.

    FertilizingApply a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and help the sod establish strong roots. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the best results.

    Weed ControlMonitor your new lawn for weeds and remove them promptly. Using a pre-emergent herbicide can help prevent weeds from taking root in the new sod.

    Common Mistakes to Avoid

    Installation ErrorsAvoid laying sod on dry soil, as this can prevent proper rooting. Ensure the sod is laid tightly together without gaps to prevent weeds and promote even growth.

    Maintenance MistakesOverwatering or underwatering can harm your new lawn. Follow the recommended watering schedule and adjust based on weather conditions.

    Seasonal Considerations for Sod Installation

    Best Times to Install SodSpring and fall are the best times for sod installation in Midland, ON, as the cooler temperatures and increased rainfall help the sod establish quickly.

    Seasonal Maintenance TipsAdjust your lawn care routine based on the season. For example, reduce watering in the fall and winter when the grass is dormant and increase it during dry summer months.
