Independence Landscape & Lawn Care
5.0
Mark and his team laid the sod in July. Despite watering and care it was just too hot and parts of the sod didn't survive. Mark promised to return in October and replace any sod that didn't put down roots. He was absolutely true to his word. He replaced all the unproductive sod and aerated and over seeded the rest. My lawn looks great and the drainage is so much better. Best of all Mark is an upfront, honest, and ethical professional. I plan on using Independence for all my lawn care from now on.

Curt Greene came over to give an estimate for sod in my back yard. This work was done expertly. 2 months later, I went on vacation for 2 weeks and the yard didn't get watered while we were gone. About half of the sod died. I called Curt to ask if there was any way to revive that part of my yard. He sadly shook his head no. And then proceeded to replace the affected sod with new for FREE! This is a company that truly cares about customer service. Wow!!

Stewart Lawn & Landscaping
2.0
This is a follow-up on my experience having Stewart L & L install some sod. After my initial review, I emailed them pictures of the sod rolls prior to being installed - 78 rolls (780 sq feet) as stated in the contract. Only 650 sq feet of sod was installed - they took 13 rolls with them at the end of the install. The owner said they had purchased 13 extra rolls - just in cast they were needed. Was informed that he did care what the pictures showed or what the how many rolls were installed sod were counted. I had counted the pieces of installed sod. I rounded that up to 650 sq feet as I may have misjudged a couple of partial rolls during the count. Add that to the 13 rolls (130 sq feet) returned, you get the 780 sq feet as called out in the contract - no extra rolls of sod…. Not sure where that extra 13 rolls of sod went, but it was never brought on to my property, nor was I reimbursed for the 130 sq feet of sod and the labor to install it. Wish I had the installers do a sod roll count and both installers sign a written inventory…. Problem: The quality of materials and workmanship was poor at best. The “top soil” brought to the job site was junk fill dirt. It contained rocks, sand, branches and other debris. I informed the lead installer that it was unacceptable and to stop unloading it from the truck. The lead installer had called someone for instructions as what should be done. He informed me that he would have to go to a local nursery to get new top soil as instructed by his boss. Problem: The installers did not have a sod roller or sod tamper. I provided my tamper for the installers to use to ensure that the sod is solidly in contact with the soil surface and removes small bumps and air pockets as recommended by sod companies. Problem: Sod laid near the lawn surface drain created a barrier between the drain and the existing lawn. I had to pull half of this sod back, scraped off the top soil, and dig out a couple of inches of dirt to restore the drainage slope. Problem: Many gaps are visible between the pieces of sod - some are big. Some of the sod, the lower cut edge is visible above the old grass lawn. Problem: Many areas where the new sod meets the existing lawn, the new sod is above the existing lawn - the underside edge of the new sod is visible. Including most of the flat edging along the retaining wall. I did not expect that I would have to fill in so many gaps between pieces of sod, nor have to redo so much of the edging where new sod meets the existing lawn- just so bring the new sod level where it is not so far above the existing grass that it drys out and starts to die. Not sure what Stewart L & L did with all the sod that I can not find in my yard, but I know that I paid for it and the labor that would have installed it.... They have chosen to keep that as extra profit. I have no idea what what kind of experience you will have if you use them for sod work, but I know what my experience I had. Hope you have netter luck than I had...

The owner and workers arrived on time and cleared front and back areas within one day. The next day they laid the sod in the back and front yards. The third day the sod was completely laid and we were told to water for the first 10 days, which we did and we had a lot of rain to allow the sod to connect with soil. The back yard looks great, however, the front yard has a lot of spots where the sod must not have been good. The amount of rain since the project was completed the last of April and up to now, the sod in the front yard should look like the back. The sod was not good. Contacted Raymundo 3 times to let him know, however; he does not return my call or my husband's call.

Ryan and his crew were professional and completed the work very quickly. On day one, they graded and prepared the ground where the sod would be laid. After removing all the debris, they put down a good layer of topsoil. On the 2nd day, they laid the sod and laid down grub pesticide because they noticed that I had a large amount of grub activity, which wouldn't be good for the new sod. Everything looks great, and I would use them again.

Jose is a very personable and talented landscaper. He responded immediately to my request for a quote and provided it the same day. Our yard was a mess as expected after replacing a septic drain field, so it needed topsoil, grading to restore water flow in the proper direction, and a new lawn. Jose and his team have obviously done this before and expertly restored our yard to it's original condition in about a day and a half. The 5,000 sq ft of sod installed blends in perfectly with the rest of the lawn and the 5,000+ sq ft seeded area is filling in great. Jose loves his work, does it extremely well, and truly enjoys helping people. I would recommend him to anyone and only regret that I didn't find him sooner.

Meadows Farms Landscaping

On Saturday, July 26, my husband bought 6 rolls of sod (called perennials on the receipt) from Meadow Farms. He came home, unloaded the sod and found the grass was dead. We immediately called Meadow Farms and asked them to replace the sod and pick up the dead rolls of sod. They said they would not take responsibility for the viability of the sod we bought that same morning or drive out to pick them up. They did say if my disabled husband would roll up the sod and return it they would refund the money. I explained that he wasn't physically able to do that because of his age and moving the sod up a steep hill. It was decided by the manager that since they did not consider themselves liable they could do nothing. The receipt very clearly states that "Perennials are guaranteed until November 1 of purchase year". If they considered the sod as perennials then they should replace it. We had to agree to disagree.

Chris did an excellent job, and was incredibly easy to work with. After an inital call and a few emails, we had a professional contract laying out the terms of the project signed and the work completed in a matter of days. Despite my project being less than 800 sq. ft., the price was very reasonable. Two weeks later, the new sod looks great with regular watering. I would unequivocally recommend his company to anyone looking to complete landscaping work.

We used their landscaping division (Aurora Landscapes) to have new sod installed in our front yard. We were told by the estimator that they use their own sod instead of store bought therefore sod will be fresh cut and in better condition. Installer came as planned finished removing existing lawn and weeds, titled the soil, covered with top soil and installed sod within a few hours. A half of the sod strip looked a bit discolored compared to the other half. We received detailed watering instruction and followed it strictly. Within a few days, those sod that looked discolored continue to brown while other section looking healthier. We contacted the company with photo to seek advice. They thought the recent rain caused overwatering. They offered to come by to blow it all up (not sure what that mean) and apply ph enhancer to green it up. Within a few days, a half of sod continue to brown and within a week, they were dead completely. We end up with spot of green sod that survived right next to the dead one all over our front yard.

I had a great experience working with James, Donnell, and their team. We had sod installed in our yard and a stone retaining wall put in. James and Donnell were both prompt and professional in their communication and their crews did top notch work. The sod looks fantastic and is taking very well and I was very impressed by the stone work the main stone mason did to replace and repair our old dilapidated retaining wall. I would definitely work with the J&J team again!

Recent Review: It turned out that the sod was defective, having a thin sand base instead of soil. It failed to take root and grow. The sod distributor who sold the defective sod refused to reimburse Looking Sharpe for the cost. Nevertheless Looking Sharpe removed the old sod on my lawn, put down top soil and fertilizer and laid down new sod at no cost to me. Looking Sharpe absorbed the cost of the replacement even though the original failure was not their fault. This speaks very highly of Mr. Sharpe and the integrity of his business.

When should you lay sod?

It's best to lay sod in early spring or early fall, when it's cool outside.

How Much Does Sod Cost?

Rolls cost about 28 to 45 cents a square foot - for a 2,000-square-foot-lawn, that's between $560 and $900.

How Much Do Pros Charge to Install?

$1 to $2 a square foot, or $2,000 to $4,000 for 2,000 square feet.

Laying sod is the best way to quickly turn a dirt lot into a lush, green paradise, but tackling this project on your own can be hard.

To ensure that you end up working with the best sod installation services, follow these simple sod installation hiring tips:

1. Learn About Grass Types

Knowing a little bit about the types of grass can make it easier when negotiating with sod layers, and the type of sod that's best for a lawn depends on your region. If you're in New England or the Midwest, Kentucky bluegrass might be right, but zoysia or centipede grass might be better if you're in the American Southwest. Compare and contrast the different types of sod before you call in the pros.

2. Check the Regulations

Laying sod doesn't require a license, but your town, county, or homeowner's association may have regulations regarding the laying of sod in your area. Learn about any extant regulations by contacting your local government or quiz any sod installation services you're planning to work with.

3. Look into Their History

Laying sod perfectly isn't easy, and if the company you want to work with has a history of making mistakes, you should find out. Ask for referrals from previous customers when you talk to a company you might want to work with, and don't forget to check out the local customer reviews.
