❶ Grass / Weed Supressing

We will Spray Roundup or Biosafe Organic Herbicide 3 to 5 days before the scheduled Sod Installation to Kill aka as Suppression of old or existing Grass & Weeds to insure that the New Lawn is Weed Free!

❷ Grass / Weed Removal

Now that the existing Grass & Weeds have been Suppressed, it will be removed using edging equipment, power-rakes, bagged & disposed of properly.

❸ Dirt Roto Tilling

We loosen up the ground with a Professional Roto-Tiller Machine about 3 -4 inches deep. This will help create a faster Root Formation & Deeper Root System.

➍ Debri and Rock clearing

Then we Power Rake the Ground to remove any Grass & Weeds. This is also where we concentrate on getting the right grade levels for proper drainage and smoothness.

➎ Fertlizer & Soil Amendments

A Starter Fertilizer will be added to improve the supply of nutrients in the soil that will allow the new sod to build a healthy root system.

➏ Ground Grading

Your lawn needs to be graded & leveled to make sure that water drains properly and edges are nice and smooth.

We will then push a lawn roller to smooth out the new soil.
