Sod

New sod allows you to enjoy instant beauty and maturity without the usual time consuming hassles of seeding. When purchasing turf, be sure that you are getting the freshest, finest quality turf available.

Spring and fall are the best times to install sod because of the cooler temperatures and more rainfall. Summer is a good time as well, however, more attention needs to be paid to watering and keeping the new sod wet for the first few weeks during the hottest period of the year.

We install sod in some spots or entire lawn. Re-leveling with additional top soil if necessary.

Our Sod Installation Process

With LawnExpert, you can look forward to having a smooth sod installation process that will provide you with a durable, affordable lawn to enjoy for many years. We make yard and lawn care easy by providing premium sod installation services along with all the other yard and lawn care services you need for a beautiful, healthy, inviting yard.

We make sure all installation steps are followed:

– Mark all sprinkler heads to prevent damage
– Remove all existing grass and weeds and loosen up the soil with a roto-tiller to promote healthy root growth
– Resurface the yard where needed by applying a top dressing soil
– New sod installed in a staggered joint fashion to prevent any water runoff
– Roll in new sod with a Water Roller for great root contact and a smooth finish
– Test sprinkler system and provide watering instructions

After installation

We double-check all sprinkler heads to be sure they are operating correctly. If any sprinkler heads are damaged, we replace them.

Watering must be started immediately after the sod is installed. This way you can get started watering while the rest of the sod is being installed. It is essential that enough water is put down the first time to thoroughly soak the sod and the soil under the sod.

Once all this is done, we will follow up with you after a couple of weeks to find out how your grass is growing and answer any questions you may have. If you have questions or concerns before the two week follow-up, just call or e-mail us.

Sod Types

St. Augustine

St. Augustine Grass

Characteristics
This warm-season grass has a coarse texture and is medium-to-dark green in color. It also has a creeping growth habit and dense turf.
Temperature Tolerance
St. Augustine grass thrives well during the heat of summer months, and tolerates most of the winters in North Texas without much problem. Extreme cold temperatures that occur occasionally in this area can cause damage to St. Augustine grass, especially in shady areas.
Shade Tolerance
The most shade tolerate of any of the warm season grasses. Can survive with as little as 3 to 4 hours of direct sunlight daily.
Water Requirements
Requires irrigation during summer months of approximately 1/2-3/4 inch of water two to three times a week depending on soil type.
Recommended Usage
Still our best choice for lawns with partial shade. It will also perform well in lawns with full sun exposure. With proper care, St. Augustine will provide a thick beautiful lawn that discourages weed infestation.

Zoysia

Zoysia Zeon

Characteristics

Wide and fine blade varieties

Shade Tolerance

Full sun to partial shade. Best shade tolerance of all sod choices

Water Requirements

Requires less fertilization and less water than st. Augustine and has fewer disease problems than st Augustine (brown patch, st. Augustine decline)

Bermuda

Bermuda Grass

Characteristics
A warm-season grass with fine to medium texture, Bermuda grass is known for its dark green color. Vigorous growth along with an extensive root system combine to produce a dense hardy turf that is tolerant to most stressful conditions.
Temperature Tolerance
Bermuda exhibits excellent heat and cold tolerance if properly managed. Cold temperatures in winter will cause the grass to go dormant but green up in spring is quick.
Shade Tolerance
Very poor shade tolerance; requires full sun for most of the day to grow properly.
Water Requirements
Can survive with very little irrigation. However, in order to maintain good quality turf, waterings of approximately 1/2 – 3/4 inch two to three times a week depending on soil type may be required.
Recommended Usage
Bermuda can produce a very high-quality turf if proper management is provided. It can also function as low maintenance turf for areas that will receive little care or irrigation. Because of this wide area of adaptation, it is utilized on everything from golf greens to roadsides.

What They Say

  • Israel is a very patient person - it’s definitely a very good trait to have especially when dealing with uncertainty, changes, & an OCD person (me 🤦🏻‍♀️). The people that work with him seem happy to do the work & are treated well & with respect - that is very important to us.

    They’re flexible, prices are reasonable. The project took a bit longer to be completed due to the weather (no control over it) & other small bumps, but they delivered what we asked & more. We’re satisfied & recommend them.

    Services provided for this project:

    - They added river rocks around the stepping stones we already had in the entrance pathway to the Studio. It changed the look completely & in our opinion it looks great! We really love it 😍

    - They also added bigger river rocks borders on some trees, planted a 15 gallon tree, did flower beds (planted our plants & flowers) around the studio water fountain & tree.

    - Raised bed for veggies & herbs.

    While they (Lawn-Expert) don’t do landscape designs and/or choose plants - we had a Master Gardener - Beth DiGioia helping us choose & picking the best plants/flowers for the best look & maintenance we were looking for. Everything flowed together & we look forward to our fall project with them.

    Thank you for everything - we wish you success!

    Lawn Expert helped me from the design of the landscaping including different scenarios for cost/benefit analysis until the complete change itself. Fair price and everything done on time! While they were doing the sod they had to adjust the backyard gate including extending / repositioning a gutter and they did it all to ensure the landscaping project was as expected. I do recommend Lawn Expert services and for sure will work with them going forward.

  • I can’t begin to say enough about the service Israel and the Lawn Expert Team provided me! Israel was very helpful throughout the entire process from planning to scheduling to installation. They redid all of my flower beds, installed crushed granite walkways, and installed new sod. The Team was professional and did a top notch job! I highly recommend them for any project you have coming up. They will be my first and only call the next time we need anything done!

    We received many quotes before choosing Lawn Experts. They had fair and detailed pricing,very responsive to calls and questions, thoroughly explained their work, gave great input and suggestions. Israel and his team work very hard, meticulously and efficiently. They removed shrubs, installed a French drain, leveled and sodded our front yard, and redid flower beds and stone work. Israel communicated every step of the way. We are thrilled!
