New Sod Lawn Installations – Portland Oregon, West Side
Whether you just bought a home that doesn’t have a back lawn yet or are in an older home that needs a complete lawn renovation, you’ve come to the right place. (read more below….)
Whether you just bought a home that doesn’t have a back lawn yet or are in an older home that just needs a lawn renovation, you’ve come to the right place. Over the years, we’ve done hundreds and hundreds of new sod lawn installation jobs. Our experienced sod installers will get you that new lawn you need in just a day or two!
Here at Lewis Landscape Services, we strive to do everything with the utmost of care and professionalism. When we install a new sod lawn we take careful care to do everything necessary to insure you’ll have a healthy lawn for years to come. Here’s how the process works:
We start by amending the soil and tilling in a 3-way custom blend of 60% sandy loam, 15% garden mulch, and 15% mushroom compost. These amendments help with drainage and give your soil the right nutrition that new sod needs. If needed, we also have the option at this stage to add in some soil conditioners that help in areas with really poor drainage. We order in fresh sod cut the same day it’s installed from local growers. From there we do all of the rough grading and finish grading until the soil is perfectly smooth and ready for the new sod to be laid. Finally, we install the new sod properly and shape it to your specifications.
In most cases, we will install RTF (Rhyzomatous Tall Fescue) Sod, which is a new improved variety of sod that is a little darker green, fuller thicker mat of grass, is drought resistant (requires 30% less water to stay green) and requires half of the fertilizer of regular perennial ryegrass. RTF is also much more shade tolerant than ryegrass but also does great in full sun. It’s a superior variety of turfgrass in almost every way. All of the photos you see here and in our photo galleries have been done using RTF.
If you have an existing irrigation system, we’ll find out where the pipes are and work around them. If you don’t already have an irrigation system, now might be the time to consider adding one. A good irrigation system is an essential part of a successful lawn and will help insure your new lawn will last much longer than one without a sprinkler system.
If you already have an old lawn that you want replaced, we’ll come in first and kill off that old lawn and remove it before starting the process above.
After we’re finished, you can rest assured that your new sod lawn will turn out great with our exclusive 30 day sod warranty!
