To receive the best sod Ottawa installation possible it is imperative that you follow these simple few steps. The first thing a home or commercial property owner must evaluate is whether the company they hired has rototilled or at lease turned the soil to a depth of 6 inches.
Are you one of these homeowners that collects compost to help out the environment? If you are, this is a perfect opportunity to utilize this mineral enriched soil. Another healthy substance to rake under your new lawn is peat moss. And finally, top it off with about 3 inches of clean fresh top soil.
In the event that the business you’ve hired are clearly not meeting at least 2 of these suggestions, than it is likely that you are working with a “fly by nighter” organization that will in fact be around less time than your lawn.
Sod Ottawa would now like to take this opportunity to explain why a properly installed turf lawn would not continue to thrive and be healthy, and why a poorly installed lawn would likely die off even with the best of watering schedules and maintenance.
Poorly installed lawns can not absorb water properly as they have not been firmly rooted into the turf system. With a properly installed sod lawn keeping the new lawn area moist is absolutely crucial. At times, properly installed lawns will be over watered which causes the roots to drown and the lawn quickly becomes over saturated with hydration.
Finally, we get to what sod installation experts often forget to mention before they receive payment and vacate your home or commercial premises. Staying off of your new turf lawn for a minimum of 3 weeks to a month is an essential part to the success of your yard’s future. Our experts at Sod Ottawa found that most lawns installed here require mowing a week following installation.
