Sod installation

Looking for Sod Installation? No Problem! Perfect Leaf Management offers the best quality sod. Sod is a layer of established grass that is dug up with roots and some soil still attached. Sod is used to transform your yard from dirt to a beautiful  lawn in a few hours. Installing sod allows you to have a lawn with mature grass instead of seeding and growing a lawn.

Regardless of the grass selected, we have a five-step approach to sod installation. We start by measuring your lawn. This is followed by a science-based approach to removing the old turf and grass. After that, we prepare and grade your soil focusing on providing your new sod base with a smooth surface.

If your property is sunny, Bermuda grass, Centipede grass, or St Augustine grass would be the best choice. If your property is primarily shaded, then tall Fescue and Zoysia Grass would be a perfect selection for you.

Our certified and licensed professionals will come out and perform a Landscape Renovation Analysis. This analysis will detail any alterations needed to create a healthy, acceptable, and positive environment for your sod to thrive.  Finally after our managers have installed your sod,  the aftercare of the installed sods follows.

Don’t make the mistake of not providing proper aftercare.  We highly recommend you hire our certified and licensed Landscape Manager to maintain the sod initially.

Our Perfect Leaf Management team will provide the care and instruction needed to preserve and extend the quality of the newly installed sod. These services include;

  • How and when to water your lawn
  • Core aerating and over-seeding
  • Establishing continuous healthy pH level
  • Preventing broadleaf and grassy weeds
  • Observe for signs of lawn fungus and diseases and take preventative measures
  • Observe sod for common lawn insects and prevent them from damaging the sod

Perfect Leaf Management’s agricultural licensed and state-certified project manager will first perform a Landscape Analysis to determine the type of grass that would thrive in your lawn and landscape environment. What do we mean when we say this? It simply implies that the landscape analysis is necessary because each sod has strict requirements in order to thrive. Some sod requirements are more or less strict than others. For instance, some sods primarily are full shade, part shade, part sun, and even full sun. In some cases, it’s unavoidably necessary to install two types of grass or two kinds of grass species. For instance, the sun shines on every home at different angles and times of the day. So take care avoid inferior sod because all sod isn’t equal. Perfect Leaf Management has strong ties to some of the best sod growers across America. Therefore, we stand behind the quality of the sod.

Be proactive when planning sod installation.  Don’t wait till May, June or July to have your sod installed. These are prime months and will result in long waits and cost increase. In addition, the sod industry doesn’t tend to recommend these months because of the crew safety reason and also to protect the sods from extreme heat.
