Sod Installation Questions

At Simply Sod, we provide a range of services, including new sod installation, yard grading and dirt preparation, and complete renovation of existing lawns that involves removing the old lawn and replacing it with new sod after proper grading.

The process for a new lawn installation with Simply Sod typically involves the following steps:

  • Consultation to assess the site and determine the appropriate sod variety
  • Grading and preparation of the soil
  • Delivery of the sod to the site
  • Laying and installing the sod on the prepared soil
  • Watering and maintenance to establish root growth

Note: The exact process of sod installation may vary based on the specific site conditions and customer requirements.

Yes, at Simply Sod, we offer comprehensive soil preparation services before installation. Our services include light and rough grading, lawn leveling, tearing out of the existing lawn, and application of a starter fertilizer (18-18-18). These services are all part of the sod-laying process to ensure proper soil preparation for the new sod to thrive.

Our sod delivery and installation services are available in Omaha and nearby cities within a 150-mile radius, including Norfolk, Grand Island, Fremont, Lincoln (NE), Sioux Falls, Yankton (SD), Kansas City (MO), Topeka (KS), and Des Moines (IA).

The time it takes to install a new lawn varies based on multiple factors, including the size of the area, complexity of the project, scheduling, availability, and customer deposit status. On average, a standard residential lawn installation can take one to two days. However, scheduling, labor availability, and required customer deposit payments can affect the overall timeline.

At Simply Sod, we offer two main types of sod to suit the needs of our residential and commercial clients - fescue and bluegrass.

Bluegrass requires more sunlight and water and is less durable in heavy traffic, but it has a dark green, thin blade appearance.

On the other hand, fescue is well-suited to heat, shade, and heavy traffic, such as from dogs, requires less water, and has a thick blade appearance.

The choice between these two varieties will depend on various factors such as the climate, sunlight exposure, and soil type in the area where the Sod will be installed. Our experts can assist you in determining the best kind of Sod for your specific environment and requirements.
