Alain and his team exceeded my expectations. I was truly blown away by his responsiveness, and the quality of the team’s work. I got three different quotes for sod installation, and his was the most affordable.

My yard was a mess and they turned it around quickly. The company is professional and communicated with me when I reached out. My lawn looks amazing and with TLC it will continue to do so ( we as the consumer need to maintain the sod). They answer all your questions and concerns. I highly recommend them.

We had gotten estimates from no less then 5 companies to redo our front and side lawn and not only did General Sod give a fair estimate but they were a great to work with as far as schedule and communication. They were very helpful and understanding when in the middle of our project we requested that an irrigation company come and review or sprinklers (since they were exposed at the time which would make it easier). They sent someone out that day and we were able to again negotiate a fair price for the movement of some of the pipes. Sod looks great and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking.

I had Alain of General sod replace my St. Augustine front yard with Empire Zoysia. Their price was the best by more than $100 than all other estimates that I received (and if I would have gone with St. Augustine again, the price would have been significantly lower). I rated General Sod as "Excellent" but would have probably marked them as 4.5 stars (instead of 5 if it were possible). Two issues I had were: when laying the sod they did not stagger the seams when laying the sod (so it looked like a checkerboard for almost 2 months until it had grown out so it is now not as noticeable in my yard), and they did not roll the ground with a roller (after removing the old sod) to ensure it was flat and even, causing several "high/low" spots in the yard. After 2 months however the yard looks amazing and is probably the best in the neighborhood. It should as I watered it twice per day for over 30 days (as they advised me) to get it established (and just got the water bill - oh my!). I was initially worried (as it seemed some of the sod was from different fields due to the squares being of a different color), but after constant watering they all blend. I am still going to have to rent a yard roller to try and level out some spots in the yard but I will use General sod again when I am ready to replace/repair my back yard. Also a hint if you are replacing sod (and you have an in-ground irrigation system): check all of your sprinkle heads for proper operation and coverage after the old sod is removed and BEFORE the new sod is put down. It will save lots of headaches once the new sod is in and you start watering it in to get it established and keep from getting brown spots/dead grass due to lack of water (I had to replace 7 sprinkler heads...).

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have done landscaping my whole life I also studied landscaping

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    This work is just in my blood, family business past down from grandfather.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    My last recent project was approximately 8600 sf of st Augustine sod repair, it took me about 2 days. I met with the home owner she was concerned the h.o.a was going to foreclose her home, she could not afford to do her whole yard with any other company. She had multiple estimates from $10,000 to $13,000 for the whole re sod. I charged her $6,000 for the whole re sod. We came in killed all of the existing grass and weeds, (crab grass) went back a week later to rip it out laid the new grass the same day. Her home looks fantastic and I would be happy to send pictures to future customers.
