Why Sod Installation?

When to Install Sod: Spring, Summer, or Fall? 

Sod is by far better than seeding for three major reasons.

  • Immediate full-grown, mature, green grass lawn
  • Sod reduces lead chemical exposure
  • Helps to prevent weeds and soil erosion problems 

Sod can be installed from spring to fall. The only difference is in the application frequency of water; in the spring and fall water application will be less than in the summer. Contact Make-A-Garden for your particular lawn, garden, and yard needs.

Early Spring Sod Installed Lawn

Common Grass Varieties in the New York City Area

Kentucky Blue Grass

Kentucky Blue, tends not to do so well in shaded conditions. It requires at least 4 to 5 hours of direct sun light in order to build a healthy thick tuff grass lawn.

Tall Fescue Grass

Blue and Tall Fescue often does much better than Kentucky Blue in relatively shaded, damp and or water logged areas. However, all grass varieties do best in well graded, tilled, and aerated soil with the right pH level. For more information, contact Make-A-Garden at 718-309-8715
