Our Sod Installation Process
At Element Turf & Outdoor Solutions, LLC, we provide high-quality services through and through that is why our experts start the sod installation process by making sure the soil is prepared correctly. Our area in Illinois is home to beautiful and competitive cool-season grasses, so our team makes sure the installation process is correct and thorough to encourage the proper development of your sod. We've laid down our process for you below.
- Our team will prepare your lawn to make way for your new sod. We will remove any debris like sticks, twigs, and rocks. Our pros will also get rid of any remaining grass to ensure we can lay down the sod in a blank slate of soil.
- After preparing the lawn, we will roll out the sod like a carpet until all soil is covered. Once we roll it out and find any patchy areas between the rolls, our team will fill it in with extra sod to ensure your grass covers the entire lawn completely.
- Once we have laid down the sod, we will use a large roller to press down on the sod to secure it and ensure it will begin to establish.
- Trust the process. It will take a few weeks for the grass to form a root system and become established in the soil.
When we install your sod, we will also apply a fertilizer rich in phosphorus to boost your sod's root development.
Taking Care of Your Newly Installed Sod
The best way you can take care of your newly installed sod is to water it regularly. The first ten days after installing the sod is crucial, so we recommend that you water your new lawn for about 15 minutes every day. If it gets warmer in the afternoon and the temperature surpasses 60 degrees, water your new lawn again to prevent it from drying out. The sod near pavements should get extra water since pavements heat up quickly and might affect the closest sod.
After the first ten days, you can start slowing down on watering your lawn. A good soaking for about 30 to 40 minutes every other day is good enough. After 20 days, congratulations! Your new lawn has taken root already and is ready to be enjoyed.
Avoid walking on your freshly installed sod to prevent damaging the roots.
