SOD INSTALLATION SERVICES IN PLANO
Sod for your property can be a great solution for yards in PLANO. North Texas summers can be tough on lawns. Installing sod is a great alternative to seeding and can turn a rough landscape or a select patchy area into a brand new lawn in as little as one day.
Benefits Of Sod For Your Plano Home
For newly built homes, sod can be a quick way to transform a barren landscape into a gorgeous lawn that looks like it has been established for years. For existing homeowners, sod provides you the option to put down a fresh, lush, green carpet to blanket your yard. The process is fast and results in polished looking yard.
Sod Vs. Seed
Since North Texas summers are so hot, seed has to be put down at just the right time of year to establish its root system. Since sod is already grown, it has a more sod-installation forgiveness for the time of year installed and can be a great addition, under certain conditions, almost year round.
Aside from making your neighbors jealous and improving curb appeal almost overnight, there are lots of good reasons for adding sod to your yard.
Preventing Erosion: Since sod is only installed when it is fully-matured, it can immediately begin preventing erosion of your soil from storms, especially on hills and slopes.
Added Value: Many houses on the market can sell more quickly and for higher prices with a better-looking yard. The ease of adding sod and the time it takes can often be a great solution when selling a house.
Fast Solution: Most home projects can be completed in just a matter of days and at almost any time during the year. If weather conditions are right, a yard can even be used for active use within a matter of weeks.
Requires Less Water: When installed, sod requires about half the amount of water that seeding does. With water at such a premium during certain seasons in North Texas, this is often a great advantage for getting a lawn to establish its root system.

Our Sod Installation Process
To provide a solid foundation and avoid the risk of weeds and other types of vegetation from competing with your new grass, we:
- Remove the old turf and weeds from the area where we will be planting the new grass.
- Prepare the area by removing large rocks and other debris.
- Blend the native dirt and add additional soil and other nutrients to give the roots a fertile base to grow.
- Finish grade the area by hand with rakes for greater precision and control.
- Once your yard is prepped, our professional landscaping team lays the newly harvested, professional-grade sod and cuts-in the edges to give a well-manicured appearance. After that is completed, upkeep is relatively simple!

Types Of Sod
Types Of Sod For Your Plano Home
While we have access to high-quality sod of each varietal that will grow in North Texas, we recommend the following strains as the best options for a lawn in Plano, Texas.
Zoysia: “Leisure Time Zoysia” is the most popular Zoysia grass we install. It has an impressive chemical tolerance, (reducing damage from “dog spot”). It is the most shade tolerant warm season grass (flourishing on a minimum of 4 hours of direct sunlight). It is self-repairing, slow growing, dense, and beautiful.
Zenith Zoysia: A warm-season turfgrass that is a great replacement for Tall Fescue due to the wider leaf blades that resemble Tall Fescue more than any other zoysia. The grass has a medium texture, dark green blade, and forms a lush, dense lawn. Zenith grows in full sun or partial shade and is disease resistant. It tolerates extreme heat, cold, and drought. Zenith is used in both residential and commercial, often found in landscapes, sport fields, golf courses, roadsides, and medians.
Zeon Zoysia: A warm-season turfgrass with a fine leaf texture. It feels soft and has a dark green emerald color. This grass is wear and traffic tolerant and recovers well from damage. It grows in full sun or partial shade. It tolerates both the winter and heat. Commonly found in places such as residential lawns, condos, hotels, businesses, and golf courses.
Bermuda: This is the most aggressively self-repairing Bermuda grass. It can repair itself up to two times faster than other self-repairing grasses. It lives up to its name in impressive physical durability, chemical, cold, and shade resistance, while exhibiting great drought tolerance characteristics. It requires less than 40% of the water as compared to Fescue.
Fescue: Is a southern version of what many consider to be the “Classic American Lawn.” Fescue requires more water, care, and maintenance than other grasses in North Texas, but in return, it offers a green lawn year-round with the proper care. Fescue is a great choice for shady areas (it can easily survive in areas with 4 hours of sunlight or longer periods of filtered shade), or areap to 30% less water than other varieties of tall fescue seed and is suitable for home lawns and commercial landscapes.
St. Augustine: St. Augustine grass is one of the most popular lawn grasses in Florida and the Gulf states, thanks to its tolerance of heat and humidity. Its blue-green blades form a dense turf that establishes quickly and easily, and can tolerate salt, making it an excellent choice for coastal yards.
