Preparation of Yard

In order to prep the site to be sodded, you will need to complete a couple of simple steps.

  1. Prepare the area to be sodded by removing all weeds. To do so, either use Roundup to kill all weeds, or work the soil 3 to 6 inches deep. This will insure a weed free lawn for the years to come.
  2. Remove all rocks, sticks and debris from site.
  3. Apply and level a 3 to 4 inch layer of quality topsoil.
  4. Roll the area to be sodded using a light roller.

You may have to re-level the area after it has been rolled to remove any high areas.

Landscaping Site Preparation

For both sodding and seeding you or your landscaper will need to:

  • Remove existing plant growth
  • Till soil, and amend if needed, to obtain 1 inch of loose soil
  • Remove rocks, sticks and other debris
  • Rake to create a smooth surface
