Lawn Installation

Sweeet Landscaping installs new lawns from spring through mid-fall.   We provide two options for installation: seeding or sodding. Of course the best lawns are properly prepared prior to any new installation. Barnes is equipped to handle all of your lawn prep needs. We recommend installing new lawns in the early fall (late August to mid-October).

Two ways to install a new lawn:

• half the cost of sod

• many wonderful seed blends available for any type of condition

• grass seed can be applied by drop spreaders or hydro-seeding equipment or a combination of both

Seeding-- the preferred method of establishing a lawn

• twice the cost of seeding

• highly perishable--must be put down immediately

• requires 2 weeks of concentrated heavy watering after installation to assure its success

 

NOTE: Watering is the key!!  Whether seed or sod, once installed it is imperative you maintain moisture in the soil for optimum results.

 

Sodding-- when there is no time to wait for that instant green carpet

The preparation for your new lawn is the hardest part of the job. Proper grading is imperative for a long term properly drained and easy mowing lawn. New lawn installation may include any of the following:

• Round-up application -- eliminates any existing weeds or grass

• Rough grading

• Addition of custom blended soils or amendments to existing soil to enhance lawn performance while decreasing its dependence on water and fertilizers

• Fine grading

• Installation of irrigation systems
