How Green is Your Grass? It Might Be Time To Resod

Blog Contributed by David West

Has your landscape become brown and lifeless? If this sounds familiar, why not consider a complete overhaul? Your grass can be greener and all you need to do is re-sod. Renovating a lawn or landscape can be a daunting task. But, with the correct tools and some professional help, you can have a lush landscape in no time!

Sod, which is a mature lawn that has been professionally grown and cultivated and cut into thick rolls with underlying soil and roots, can become an instant new lawn. Sod can take as many as two years to mature, but even though the plants in a roll are established and mature when compared with their seeded counterparts, care must be taken at the time of planting to ensure plant survival.

Once the grass has died off, landscapers use a sod cutter to remove the old top growth. Once the soil is prepared, you can properly install your lawn, by rolling out the sod. The difficulty with re-sodding is that you need some place to put the dead sod. You can rototill the area and rake out the dead grass that remains on the top, but there will still be some cleanup.
