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.

Austin and his team did a tremendous job with removing & tilling my old sod, leveling my yard, adding soil & amendments, and laying down new sod. His team was professional, punctual, knowledgeable, and provided the best quote hands-down. I would recommend Overstreet Lawn Care to anyone!

They came out to lay sod in our front yard. They first came out to give us our estimate, which was extremely reasonable. They were back out with the sod in about four days. The job took them less than two days due to having to rake the existing mulch that was there. They were on time and very friendly to work with. Not only did they lay the sod, but also went over and beyond and replanted what we had so they would not be lost in this project and created a little hill and used the existing decorative rocks we had and placed them throughout. Looks wonderful! That was not anything we discussed and they took it upon themselves knowing what looks good! Not our strong point. We have been having problems with some of the sod browning. My husband contacted Jesus and was back the next day to lay new sod in that area. We have been very pleased with then and would use them again and recommend to a friend!

I am extremely pleased with the quality of work executed by the Sharpscapes team. We had multiple in person consultations to ensure my vision of the landscaping was indeed implemented. The sod and straw was beautifully laid in the yard. I’m happy!! Thanks Brandon and crew!

Austin provided me with an excellent proposal at a fair price for a sod installation project at my Marietta home. He then completed the work in a timely and highly professional manner. I am fully satisfied with the work done, and I would recommend Austin without hesitation.

Unfortunately, I made the mistake of using James and his company last year to install sod with my neighbor. Everything seemed fine until after the installation. Small patches of grass started to die after we followed the instructions of watering and care per Outdoor Landscapes. As the summer went on we were reassured that James and Co would come out to fix it, but never did. Fast forward a year to now, both properties have large swaths of grass that have died. I come to find out after the fact part of the sod purchased was resold to a neighbor down the road and I was required to my buy more since "there was more needed than originally thought." After multiple contacts by both us James stopped responding after agreeing to fix the problems, at this point I just hope someone can avoid the same fate we did.

I don’t even know where to start. This was the best experience I have ever had with an outdoor company. We have lived in this house for 19 years and everyone that pulls up in the driveway has always overcharged me for everything and then under delivered. James was quick to respond, timely (even though he had a death of his close friend) and charged me 1000’s yes, no typo, 1000’s of dollars less than I was previously quoted to do the same exact thing, which was putting in a drain and re-sodding the entire back yard and he was pleasant and nice the entire process. And it is absolutely gorgeous. I highly, highly recommend him. I can’t even say enough good things about him.
