SOME OF OUR RECENT PROJECTS

 

New Sod for North End Home

Fall and Spring are excellent times to sod your lawn; the climate here in the Pacific Northwest is cool and moist, but there's still enough sun to promote a little bit of growth. The owner of this north end yard wanted us to demolish his gravel parking strip and threadbare lawn, then replace it with sod. The lot was about 1200 square feet, so it only took us a couple of days to complete the job.

After stripping the old ground cover, we found several inches of compacted soil and gravel. To encourage proper drainage and root growth we broke up the gravel and tilled the dirt with special equipment. We topped that layer with four to ten inches of a special soil mix. It's important to get the right blend of sand, compost and loam because the sod won't take root if the mix is off.

    Special Seed Blend

Before laying down the sod, we compacted and leveled the ground. For proper drainage, we gently sloped the grade. You'd never notice the slope, but it makes a big different, especially when there's heavy rain.

Cutting and planting the sod was easy part.

We encourage customers to choose weed-free Washington grown sod with a hybrid seed blend. We also recommend a quarterly maintence program for at least the first year to make sure the sod fuses with the soil underneath and the grass stays healthy.
