the lawn placement process

Lawn placement is one of the most important parts of what we do at Raysbrook Sod. It’s not only extremely important to take very good care of our sod as it grows, but also during the lawn placement process.

Here’s the process that we use from the point that we arrive with the product to when the lawn is completely placed and ready to be used.

Soil preparation before laying sod

It’s very important to do a great site preparations and make sure that the soil conditions are good enough to achieve great recovery and sustainability of your lawn once it’s all done.

  1. Thoroughly clean the soil to destroy and eliminate weeds, especially perennials.
  2. If necessary, provide organic fertilizer and/or amendment
  3. Add back some soil (not always required)
  4. Refine and level the soil
  5. In case the soil is too dry, the use of water and irrigation system may be necessary

Once the land is prepared, we move on to placing the lawn.

Laying sod

Our landscaping professionals lay 150 to 300 m2 per day, depending on the garden’s conditions and accessibility

Here are some tips that you can follow in case you prefer to do-it-yourself:

  • Avoid distorting the flatness of your soil (avoid using spikey shoes)
  • Place your first lawn strips align with a straight edge
  • Make sure to tighten the sods are as close as possible to each other without overlapping and shifting the successive rows
  • Make the necessary cuts with a sharp knife
  • Roll the sod to properly put the roots in contact with the existing soil
