Sod Grass

The best time to install sod in the Atlanta area is during the spring, summer and early fall. That, said, we have successfully installed Bermuda during the winter months. Centipede and Zoysia grasses should be installed mid-spring to late summer.

Soil Preparation

The first step that our professional sod installers take when beginning a commercial or residential sod installation project is ground preparation. Preparing the ground for sod installation includes removing any existing vegetation such as grass, moss, and weeds. Depending on the scale of the project, our sod installation contractors complete this step using sod cutters, front-end loader driven hydraulic rakes, or hand tools.

Grading

The grading step is one of the most important steps in the sod installation process as it contributes greatly to the final end result and quality of a sod installation project. Because sod will conform to any uneven dips or hills in the ground, the ground must be graded properly prior to sod installation. We use a variety of modern equipment in order to create the best results. Grading an area properly will ensure proper drainage and runoff for years to come. During this grading process, top soil may be added as needed as a base for sod or to level off certain areas.
