Just built a new home and need the yard graded with fresh sod or grass seed installed?

Is there a special event coming up like a wedding, party, or gathering where you need your yard to look pristine? Getting grass to properly take root and grow into a thick, green lawn is harder than it looks. There’s a specific process involved if you want amazing results.

From grading, drainage, soil preparation, laying sod, or overseeding – we can transform your yard into a lush, green showcase lawn.

We also offer weekly lawn care services like mowing, fertilizing, and weed control to keep your new lawn looking perfect all year round.

Seed vs Sod – Which is Best for Your New Lawn?

One of the first decisions is whether to go with grass seed or sod for your new lawn. Here are some factors to consider:

  • How will the lawn be used (kids, pets, etc.)?
  • What is your overall budget?
  • Are you working on a tight timeline?

If your lawn gets heavy foot traffic from kids and pets, sod may be better since it establishes faster. But sod is more expensive upfront. You’ll have an instant green lawn that will fully blend in 1-2 weeks.

Seed is more economical but takes longer – usually a couple of months for full grass coverage. Seed requires very precise site prep, making it just as costly for larger projects.

If you have an event like a wedding or party upcoming, sod gives you a lush lawn immediately when timing is crucial.
