The installation of sod or turf can transform a poor, patchy yard into a lush landscape that benefits the environment and changes the entire dynamic of your outdoor space. Whether planning for a commercial location or a residence, the proper installation of sod provides a transformation that softens your area and gives a polished look.
From the first conversation to the final installation, Siara Designs® offers top-tier landscaping design services in Dallas that will provide the solutions to your landscaping questions. Adding sod to your lawn can instantly create a carpeted landscape for your enjoyment.
The Benefits of Sod or Turf
The installation of sod can work to create a balance between natural spaces and urbanization. Studies have proven that a 5,000-square-foot lawn can produce the oxygen requirements for 34 Dallas residents.
Additionally, turf helps reduce runoff, prevent erosion, regulate temperature, and even reduce sound by 8 to 10 decibels when planted on sloped ground facing a noise source.
Preparation Is Key
Planning for the installation of sod in your yard begins in advance of the day we arrive to lay the turf. The Siara Designs team will lay out a plan with you to understand what you are looking for in a lawn, explain the maintenance requirements, discuss the varieties of sod that will work best in your area, and what additional services you may want to consider to keep your turf looking fresh and well maintained.
An onsite visit allows us to evaluate what your space demands.
- What is the soil like where the sod or turf will be placed? The three key ingredients of water, air, and nutrients that keep your sod healthy are in the soil.
- Are there light limitations that dictate an area’s type of sod or turf?
- Will sod be placed in a high-traffic area?
- Are trees or other competing plants in the area that should be considered when laying sod?
- Will the sod require frequent watering, and is an irrigation system a better option for the watering demands?
Premium Sod Selection
Our team prides itself in offering our North Texas clients environmentally friendly options with sods suited for the climate. Here are some of the choices we work with.
Two types of St. Augustine grass perform well in North Texas and are more shade tolerant. One of these grasses is virus resistant, adding to the health of your lawn.
This grass was created by a team at Texas A&M University. Its development centered around the North Texas environment and the factors that influence its survival, such as drought, heat, and sun tolerance. This grass can also tolerate cool temperatures and some shade.
This drought-resistant grass is one of the most popular grasses for landscaping in North Texas. It enjoys the generous amount of sunshine our state receives and can maintain its beautiful color even when the temperatures start climbing in the hotter months.
The installation time of the turf will depend on the canvas we are working with. We prepare the space to provide optimal conditions for the sod by removing old grass and weeds, rocks, and unwanted plants. Soil amendment may be necessary.
The size of the landscape is also a factor. But we worked to provide the highest quality installation in an appropriate time frame.
Caring for Your New Turf
Your sod will need care to help it to thrive, particularly after its initial installation. We value education and want to prepare you for the best lawn practices to keep your sod healthy.
Your new lawn will need water so that it establishes appropriately. Depending on the sod, we will inform you about watering requirements so that it has the best environment for establishing roots and flourishing. The time of year will also dictate how much water your new turf needs to develop.
Just like humans, your sod will benefit from nutrients. We believe in keeping turf healthy with products that are also good for the environment. Our organic, sustainable, eco-friendly products keep your lawn healthy while protecting your family, pets, and the wildlife that visits your yard safe from harsh chemicals.
We commit to leaving your yard and the environment healthier than we found it.
Once the sod has more established roots and begins to grow, you will want to manicure it to maintain its lush appearance. We will advise you on the best conditions for mowing and the most suitable mowing height to keep your roots from damage.
