When seeding a lawn, the process does take some patience and time. Whether doing over seeding (restoration) or complete new (renovation) we will surely exceed expectations.
The best times to do any seeding projects are September and October being that the weather is optimal, the right air temperature and the proper soil temperature. This is important because it’s a must that we prevent grass seed from drying out in the hot days of summer. Under certain circumstances we will do seeding projects in the spring but ideally prefer the fall.
When it comes to sod, the cost is higher than seed and you’re not given the options of different varieties. But on the other hand you are provided with an instant lawn. When we do our Stillwater MN lawn care service lawn renovations or lawn restoration some of our clients request sod because of timing, upcoming events, less weeds, recent pool install etc. We properly prep the site for the new lawn which includes removing existing turf with a sod cutter, adding a layer of fine screened top soil, spreading granular and/or liquid fertilizer and laying the sod in the proper way for quick root establishment.
No lawn project is complete until we educate our clients on proper care to ensure optimal results. This includes the perfect watering schedule, when next application of fertilizer needs to be done and when its safe to walk on new lawn. If client requests we will set your irrigation clock to be sure new lawn doesn’t dry out.
