Sod installation is an investment in your property's curb appeal and value, and it demands proper care and maintenance for lasting success. College Fund Landscaping excels in professional sod installation and offers ongoing lawn maintenance services. With us, your investment is protected, and your lawn will flourish year after year.

Why Choose College Fund Landscaping?

Freshly installed sod requires specific care to establish strong roots and maintain its vibrant appearance. Follow these tips to ensure your new lawn flourishes:

Water Your New Sod Regularly
Consistent watering is essential for establishing strong roots in new sod. Right after installation, water the fresh sod for a minimum of 45 minutes. This initial watering lets the sod and soil absorb moisture, aiding root growth.

We recommend the cycle and soak watering method, which involves applying water to your lawn in short bursts to allow effective absorption and prevent runoff. Instead of running each sprinkler zone continuously, divide the irrigation time into two or three parts. This method helps conserve water and is particularly useful for clay-rich soil types like in Frisco.

Schedule the run times about one hour apart until the soil is adequately moistened to a depth of 6 to 8 inches. Most sprinkler system controllers can be programmed to automate the cycle and soak method for efficient watering.

Promote Strong Root Growth
Your new sod craves nourishment for robust growth in its early months. Around 6 to 8 weeks after installation, administer the first round of fertilizer. This grace period allows the sod to recover from installation and accumulate water.

Look for a granular starter fertilizer with an 18-24-12 ratio. For an eco-friendly approach, explore organic alternatives suited for your lawn type. Remember, this step significantly impacts your lawn's success. If deprived of nutrients, your new lawn might struggle to establish sturdy roots.

Mastering the Mowing Game
Give your lawn time to develop a robust root system before introducing the mower. Typically, three weeks is a safe wait period for vigorously growing sod. If your lawn was laid dormant during winter, grant it three to four weeks after the growth cycle commences.

Remember the golden rule of mowing: never cut more than one-third of the grass blade length. Opt for a higher mowing height to protect your lawn's health. Keep your mower blades sharp to ensure clean cuts that encourage quicker recovery, improved appearance, and disease resistance.

Transform Your Lawn with Professional Sod Installers in Texas

In the eternal debate over the best way to achieve a luscious, vibrant lawn, homeowners are often faced with the choice of seed or sod. It's a discussion echoed across picket fences for years, fueled by personal preferences and practical considerations.

Sod, the instant lawn solution from College Fund Landscaping, involves unrolling pre-grown grass over prepared soil. Think of it as unrolling a carpet of grass already rooted and ready to thrive. On the other hand, you have the classic method of sowing grass seed. This route takes a little more time; it's a journey that takes a full growing season to achieve the beautiful yard you desire.

Seed vs. Sod Installation in Texas

There are several factors you should consider when deciding what's the right type of sod grass for you, including where you live, how you envision using your lawn, and your tolerance or intolerance toward challenging conditions.
College Fund Landscaping offers the following types of sod for your lawn:

Bermuda grass feels right at home in the southern two-thirds of the United States, flourishing under warm and tropical climates. This perennial turfgrass variety thrives in high temperatures, mild winters, and ample rainfall. Bermuda sod offers a clean, manicured look that enhances the curb appeal of Plano homes. Its fine texture, vibrant green color, and ability to form a dense and even turf add to its visual charm.
Texas is known for its diverse climates, from the arid deserts in the west to the humid Gulf Coast region. Bermuda sod is an excellent option for Texas, as it can withstand this broad range of conditions while still offering a stunning lawn.

St. Augustine
Picture a lush, vibrant lawn that flourishes even under the relentless sun and heat of warm climates like Texas. Loved by homeowners and landscapers alike, this green wonder transforms landscapes into havens of natural beauty.
St. Augustine features a stunning green hue and rich density, creating lawns that thrive under the sun's heat. Moreover, this grass's ability to tolerate salt makes it a perfect choice for coastal properties that seek nature's elegance without compromising on seaside views.

Zoysia stands tall as the virtuoso of the turf world, with a medium-thick grass blade that adapts effortlessly to a wide range of soil types, from sand to clay. It's not just a lawn; it's a canvas where nature paints its masterpiece. Its dense growth pattern exudes a plush texture that feels like a luxurious carpet underfoot.

Our Sod Installation Varieties

When it comes to establishing a stunning lawn, the method you choose can make all the difference. Sodding is the fastest and most convenient way to create a lawn and presents a range of compelling advantages that set it apart from traditional seeding.

Expertly Grown Sod
Choosing sod means selecting a lawn with a strong foundation for both health and beauty. At College Fund Landscaping, we have over two decades of experience in landscaping, including high-quality sod installation.

Instant Greenery
The most remarkable benefit of sodding is the immediate transformation it offers. Unlike other methods that require months of waiting for germination and growth, sod provides you with an "instant lawn." With sod, you'll have a beautiful and functional yard within weeks, ready for play, entertainment, and that barbeque you’ve postponed for years.

Efficient Irrigation
Sod installation comes with the advantage of requiring less irrigation compared to seeding. While newly seeded lawns demand frequent and intense watering to ensure proper germination, sod needs less attention.

Dense and Even Coverage
Sodding results in a denser and more uniform lawn. Each piece of sod carefully fits together, leaving no room for bare spots or uneven growth. This seamless integration ensures a consistent and lush appearance throughout your yard, so you don’t need any additional reseeding or patchwork.
