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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

They replied quickly to my sod request and were fantastic! They were prompt, professional, quick and easy to work with. Before finding them, I had been trying to get sod installed for over a month. They replied, met with me and had the sod installed all in just a week. They had a team that worked hard and the lawn looks great. I've hired them for weekly maintenance too. Great job! Highly recommend them!

Removal of old lawn and installation of 10,000 square feet of new sod. Daniel, the owner, worked closely with us to meet the specifics we wanted for the job (removal of the top layer by hand--at least where there were weeds), tilling of soil, installation and creation of a defined border with plant beds. Work was done on time and in a very professional manner (starting with the initial bid where we could see examples of their work on his iPad, including videos of the process they followed for removal of old sod and installation of new sod).

Lucio did a great job helping with a drainage problem. The area was raised and sloped properly with dirt and new sod was put down.

Elmer and crew helped me install zeon zoysia grass in my backyard this fall with great success. He cleared out my backyard, replanted two plants, leveled bumps, and spread top soil before laying out sods from super sod. Not the cheapest around but they do quality work. I’d use them again.

Unfortunately we had to cancel our agreement to re-sod our lawn because of a lack of communication and showing up to do the job.

I really like the job Marco and his crew did to install my new zoysia lawn. From grading to clean-up their attention to detail was clearly evident. I wholeheartedly recommend Flourish for sod installation and I'm sure their landscaping services would be just as good. I have given Marco my permission to use my name/address as a reference. BobP

I seriously cannot say enough good things about Adrian/El Maguey Landscaping Co. He was prompt, professional, fast, and very reasonable. He offered suggestions about layout and got right to work. What a treat to have all the sod we ordered installed perfectly, quickly, and for a good price! We look forward to using El Maguey for more landscaping in the future.

There aren’t enough great things I could say about Elmer and his company. Not only did they do a beautiful job but it was done quickly and professionally. We needed to re-sod our backyard and he came for a consultation and then installed TWO days later. We loved him so much, we hired him for some other lawn projects we needed as well. Elmer and his company are 5 Stars!!!!!
