Is it Possible to Lay Sod Over My Existing Grass?
Although you can lay sod over an existing lawn, it’s not recommended.

To learn more about how to sod over an existing lawn, consult your The Grounds Guys.

Sod Lawn Installation
Installing sod successfully takes more than just a little elbow grease. It takes experience and know-how to get the job done right. If you hire professionals for sod installation, you want to be confident that they understand the many variables that can affect success. Here are some of the steps our expert sod installers take to ensure your sod installation is a success:
- Removing old grass and weeds in the soil.
- Amending the soil if necessary.
- Grading the soil so it’s level and drains well.
- Installing the sod with industry best practices.
- Setting up irrigation or sprinklers to ensure the sod receives plenty of water.
How Long is the Sod Installation Process?
Of course, before our expert sod installers can begin the job, they need to prepare your lawn for sod installation. Once we’ve prepped the area, several factors will determine the time it takes to complete the installation. The size of the area being sodded, number of hard-to-access areas, and amount of cutting required can affect completion time. Because yard sizes also vary, the time it takes for complete sod installation will vary.
Does your landscape have challenging terrain, such as sloping ground or uneven ground? The Grounds Guys are expert sod installers and know how to lay sod correctly on even the most challenging landscapes. We use the best sod installation methods and techniques to t avoid disrupting your garden and other features in your yard.
Fresh Sod Care
Fresh sod requires a different maintenance routine than a regular lawn. Avoid the temptation to put perfect mow lines or have a picnic on your newly installed lawn. Following these sod care tips will help ensure your new sod takes root and grows into a healthy, thriving lawn:
- Avoid overwatering, but never allow the sod to dry out. Water the sod three to four times a day for five to ten minutes.
- Avoid watering the sod in the evening.
- Avoid excessive foot traffic on your new lawn for at least two weeks.
- Water the lawn for 30 minutes every day, twice a day if necessary.
Third Week and Beyond
- After three weeks, you can mow your new lawn. Keep the mower deck high, and never mow more than 1/3 the length of the grass blades.
- Fertilize your new sod six weeks after installation.
How Much Will Our Sod Installation Service Cost?
Hiring a professional sod installer can save you valuable time and effort. In addition to the time and effort required, you’ll need to have the right tools, such as an aerator, wheelbarrow, sod cutter, and lawn roller. If you don’t have all these tools, you’ll need to spend money to rent or buy them. Why deal with the hassle? The Grounds Guys have the experience and all the right tools to make your sod installation project go smoothly from start to finish.
There are several factors to consider when it comes to sod installation pricing. First, how big is the area you want to sod? Other factors, such as preparing the ground before installation and the amount of prep time needed will also impact the cost. Finally, the type of sod you want and whether you need to have an irrigation system installed or upgraded will also determine the final sod installation cost.
If your yard has built-in landscape orhardscape features such as raised gardens, decorative boulders, or waterfalls, these features can make sod installation difficult and affect the cost. Regardless of your property's unique challenges, rest assured that our expert sod installers can get the job done right the first time.
