Your sod installation questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does sod installation cost near me?

Sod prices are $0.30 to $0.80 per square foot or $130 to $360 per pallet (450 SF), without installation. Sod installation costs $0.90 to $1.80 per square foot for materials and labor, depending on the grass type and job size. Sodding an average 0.2 acre lawn costs $4,500 to $10,000.

When is the best time to lay sod?

Sod can be laid anytime during the growing season. The best times to lay sod are in early and mid-fall or spring when temperatures are cooler, but grass continues to grow. Some types of sod grass can also be installed in the winter, even though it's dormant. Avoid laying sod in summer. Summer sod installation requires extra water that often leads to disease and fungus.

Who lays sod near me?

Landscapers, lawn installation companies, and grass seeding companies lay sod near you. Use HomeGuide to find top-rated sod installers in your area, get free estimates to compare, and view photos that showcase lawns installed by the pro.

Can you lay sod over existing grass?

Laying sod over existing grass does not work and may kill the sod. All sod must be laid over soil to root correctly. Removing the existing grass and preparing the lawn with soil amendments and rototilling is required to promote a healthy root system.

Do I need to rototill before laying sod?

Rototilling before laying sod works the existing growth into the dirt, loosens the soil, and uncovers buried rocks to give the roots room to grow. Alternative soil preparation methods include adding topsoil for the roots and to improve the yard's grade or laying the sod on the existing bare ground.

Consult with a landscaping sod company to discuss the best preparation method for your lawn.

What is sod installation?

The sod installation process includes:

  1. On-site evaluation, measuring, and free estimate
  2. Project planning, equipment rentals, and sod delivery
  3. Preparing the soil by removing existing growth and tilling
  4. Marking the location of each sprinkler head
  5. Application of soil amendments or top dressing and leveling the yard
  6. Installing the new sod by dampening the soil, raking, and laying the pieces.
  7. Filling in the gaps from previously cut sod scraps
  8. Using a lawn roller to smooth out the sod and remove air pockets
  9. Testing the sprinkler system
  10. Providing watering and maintenance directions
