Many people go to great lengths to landscape their yards. This often involves installing sod, flowers, trees, and other plants. There are a variety of sodding service companies that can assist with laying sod, adding topsoil, and planting large trees. Depending on the type of turf, seeds, tall trees or pants involved, the cost of this lawn service can vary. Fortunately, it is possible to acquire estimates on grass seed, sod installation, and artificial or fake turf before buying anything. Some helpful terms that apply to this business are listed below.
Crabgrass – A type of creeping grass that often shows up on lawns and can become an irksome weed problem over time.
Topsoil – This is essentially the top layer of soil/dirt, and it is where grass grows from.
Artificial Turf – Typically green in color, this looks like grass at a distance but is actually fake, similar to a carpet, and commonly used on miniature golf courses.
Landscaping Company – A group of professionals that generally offer services such as sod laying, tree installation, lawn moving, and fertilizing.
Sod Service – This is a type of yard maintenance or landscaping service that buys new sod at wholesale and specializes in laying or installing it for clients.
Lawn Service Estimate – Depending on what it is you wish to have done to your yard, you can have a lawn service expert assess the property and provide you with a price quote.
Fertilizer – This is a natural or chemical substance/blend that is added to topsoil in order to improve fertility.
Maintaining a beautiful lawn is difficult for many people because they cannot devote time to fertilize and water their landscapes. Hiring a sod company, however, can make this much easier for those who find that they don't have time to maintain lawns and gardens on their own.
One of the advantages of using a sod installation company is that you can choose beautiful, noninvasive grasses that will not take over other lawns in your area. Sod installation companies have connections to farms and wholesalers that grow grass from seed. This allows them to control the types of turf that they offer their clients. Individuals can therefore choose the length and color of the turf that they want for their lawns. Centipede and Bermuda grasses are two of the most popular types for homeowners. Installation companies should have rolls of these and other types of grass at varying lengths and colors.
Many of the sodding companies also provide landscape maintenance services. This helps maintain the life of the turf that they install. Instead of worrying about how much water and fertilizer to give your yard, these companies take care of all the work for you. Many of them will even use herbicides and other methods to ensure that invasive plant species do not invade your yard and garden.
You can find more information and sodding companies by access their web sites. Just use “sod,” “installation,” “maintenance," and the name of your city in a popular internet search engine. This should give you a list of web sites of the companies that work in your area.
