Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

When should you lay sod?

Sod can be laid any time of the year, though the best time to do so is in the spring or early fall. During this time, temperatures are cooler but grass is still growing.

Summer isn’t ideal for laying sod (but still possible), as the high temperatures demand extra watering that can not only drive up your water bill. It can also make conditions ideal for mold and fungi.

Do I need to rototill before laying sod?

Whether you rototill before laying sod depends on your preference, but your ground needs to be prepared for the sod to take root in the soil. A rototiller makes it easy to till up compacted earth so that new sod can easily take hold, but there are other methods you can do. Consult with a sodding professional to discuss which preparation steps should take place before laying sod.

Who can lay sod near me?

Landscapers and sod installation specialists can lay sod. When choosing a professional to lay sod in your yard, read their ratings and reviews from customers. Also, search for photos that showcase actual work done by the pro. And always get cost estimates from several sodding professionals so you can get an idea of how much you should pay for their services.

Can you lay sod over existing grass?

There are differing opinions about this topic, which is why you should talk to a sodding professional near you to find out if it’s possible to lay sod over your particular lawn. In some cases, it might be possible. For example, some professionals say the new sod will kill the existing grass underneath and release nutrients that will benefit the new sod.

However, others believe the old grass will disrupt the sod's ability to take root in the soil, and it will die due to a lack of nutrients.

How can I find out if a landscaper or lawn care professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To consult national guidelines on essential COVID-19 service providers and see whether a lawn care professional qualifies, visit a page on CISA’s website called Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This website contains 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors that you can search through. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure so you should also check your city or state’s government website.  

Can I use digital payments to pay for outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing, tree trimming and other similar services?

Many outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing and tree trimming companies will likely accept some form of digital payment instead of cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely causing more businesses to adopt digital platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash and Google Pay.

Search professionals’ online profiles to see if they list digital payment services, and ask them about their payment policies during a consultation call.

Does a landscaper or lawn care professional need to enter my home?

Because landscaping and lawn maintenance take place outdoors, it is unlikely that these professionals will need to enter your home.

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, practice social distancing at all times -- even with professionals doing work outside. You can minimize exposure during a consultation by using a video chat service. And when you pay, you can use a digital payment service like PayPal. Discuss strategies with any lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming and lawn care companies you may be considering.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a landscaper or lawn care professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation call with a lawn care professional or landscaper during the COVID-19 pandemic, take advantage of digital technologies to avoid face-to-face exposure. When searching for lawn mowing, landscaping and lawn care companies online, ask if they’ll do a video call to assess the job and give you an estimate. You can also go over strategies for completing the job and conducting virtual payments to stay safe.

Michael did an excellent job in both estimating the cost of our sod installation and doing the actual work. He communicated schedules and plans effectively. He was flexible and accommodated our requested changes, which were fairly frequent. He relayed instructions on how to properly care for the sod after it was fully installed. The final product looks awesome (it’s not all quite a deep green yet, but I know it will be)! Thanks Michael, and your partner Mariah as well!

We were completely dissatisfied with our first landscaper.Would miss several days in a row.We hired Ernesto Cortez to continue and complete the job.Ernesto brought in a Bobcat to complete the grading and prepare our back yard for sod.He is an expert with the machine.He brought in gravel for edging for the sod,then installed 1200 sq.ft. of sod.His many suggestions for the job were great and resulted in a perfect back yard for us.We've had sod installed 4 other times on different houses and this was the most difficult job,but it was the best.I would recommend ErnestoCortez to anyone.His prices are fair and his work is excellent.We couldn't believe how fast the job was completed.

We added new sod to our front yard and Michael and his team were able to provide a great value and knock out the work in one day. They were also able to provide additional recommendations, answer other landscape questions and provide additional services/requests on the fly. Was very happy with the project and will definitely use Stay Fresh for future jobs.

Joshua and team did an amazing job installing our sprinkler system and new sod. They were quick, flexible and made sure we were informed throughout the process. They also taught us a lot about how to care for our new yard. The quality of work they provide is great, and we are so glad we hired them. They transformed the appearance of our home. You can really tell that they care about their clients and the work they do. We unfortunately came home one day to find that someone had driven through the corner of our yard and badly damaged a portion of the new sod. We were devastated, but Joshua and team saved the day an got us two nice boulders to sit in the corner of the yard. We didn't have to lift a finger. Not only did they fix the yard, they helped to ensure it doesn't happen again. They went above and beyond for us, and we would highly recommend them to anyone.

Dave was extremely helpful from the time he came to our house to give us a quote. Not only were their prices competitive, but he worked with us and gave us multiple quotes after we changed our mind throughout the process. Dave went above and beyond to help make sure our new sod was watered properly the first weekend. We don’t have a sprinkler system and had to go out of town that first weekend. He came by throughout the weekend to make sure our lawn was watered when it needed to be. Definitely recommend them!

Terrific experience so far. Job just finished yesterday and it was very hot day. I was concerned that the sod looked drier than I expected and not very green. Sean guarantees it for two weeks, and says it was simply due to the heat and it will green up in the next few days. He set up the sprinkler system to water it adequately and will come back and adjust in two weeks. Educated myself and the tenants on the care needed. Since he is the expert, I trust that it will, and am confident he will take care of it if it doesn't. He's been great to work with and very accommodating with my crazy schedule. I am grateful to have found a great vendor for the future. Nice to have a seamless transaction! I would highly recommend.

Ernesto was fantastic to work with!! He definitely deserves all the good reviews on here and my husband and I highly recommend him! He quickly contacted me after I submitted the request through Thumbtack and even offered to do the bid that same evening. When he came out to do the bid he was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Immediately after just walking into my backyard, he recognized an issue with the grading and knew that my basement had been flooding because of it. Ernesto was able to come out and take care of our sod request within a week of the bid and he offered a very reasonable price. He did an incredible job and our backyard looks amazing!! He and his crew worked efficiently while still making sure everything was done with the highest quality. We will definitely be hiring him again to take care of our grading issues and any other landscaping needs that arise.
