Here’s my stance on a niche market for people interested in the alternative to conventional lawn care. First, let me ask you this - Does your landscaper: 1)Offer composting services to generate sustainable and long-term fertility? 2)Integrate practices of restoration for native species preservation? 3)Apply local biodynamic inputs that feed your soil biota, and food web as a whole? 4)Prepare & install growing areas for organic vegetables, fruits, culinary/medicinal herbs, and pollinator-friendly flowers? 5)Give you a return on your investment? My services offer all of the above through regenerative and renewable practices that promote personal health, food security and ecological prosperity. I use NO chemicals or mass-produced products when transforming monoculture lawns to biodiverse food spaces. Thanks to permaculture, we’ve learned how to work with nature via non-invasive self-reliant approaches. From seeds, to knowledge and experience, my work is to share with you the benefits of creating your own natural edible landscape, and how to take care of it. Step-by-step, the framework for immediate access to clean nutritiously-dense plant foods, including sprouts and grass. Yes, that’s right. Edible grass, in the form of soil-building cover crops. We can replace non-edible nitrogen-exhausted lawns to nitrogen-fixing wild grasses that are edible! Give me a call for a free 10-15 minute consultation, and we can discuss any questions you may have for me. I personalize quotes if you decide to hire me, which is myself and occasionally a small crew of 1-2 likeminded Permaculture Gardeners when extra helping hands are needed. I look forward to sharing with you the tricks of my trade and encourage you to ask questions. We’re here to cultivate relationships with growers, weave new webs in the local food network and while striving towards ecological sovereignty.

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.

Do landscapers or lawn care professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Landscapers and lawn care professionals generally do not offer remote or virtual services. But if you come across a profile that states the landscaper is offering remote services, it’s best to contact them to see what type of remote work is offered. 

Typically, lawn care and landscaping professionals can perform many of their duties without coming into physical contact with clients. Message local lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming, and lawn care companies near you to schedule a video call and inquire about remote services.

Gene and his crew did a fine job removing the sod and laying the new sod. Gene is very easy to work with, and I'm quite satisfied with the results.

UPDATED REVIEW: After about 6 months, and the addition of new personally purchased sod that wasn't included in the original quote (install area/front yard was measured by contractor, pallets were ordered by him, but there was not enough sod to cover the entire area needed), I can evidently tell that the sod installed (either Floratam or Classic) is not the variety of St. Augustine that I had specifically requested (Palmetto). The personally installed sod and the sod installed by Firefly are vastly different in characteristics. One of the few conclusions that I've drawn is that Floratam is a much cheaper product and more widely available than Palmetto, and that's why it was used on the install. Or perhaps the sod source was not honest in their selling of the product to our installer, like Lake Jem Farms perhaps. While I appreciate the work done by Pablo and his crew, I can't help but feel negatively about this job. We ended up prepping and re-sodding our backyard ourselves with self-sourced sod from a local nursery and the result has been considerably better than the sod installed by Firefly. Original Review: Pablo was exceptionally professional to deal with throughout the process of removing our old yard and installing new sod. He was always on time, and kept me up to date on the progress of the project. Him and his crew performed quite good work.

Kevin and his team did an outstanding job and to fully understand how outstanding I need to provide some context. I had to replace my septic drain field and during the process the septic company destroyed my front yard. Irragation system was in pieces and my yard was now just dirt. I had to use two irrigation companies that charged me way too much and their work was poor at best. I had several companies provide me quotes for removing the left over sod and I stalling new sod. All of the estimates except for Kevin where way over priced and provided no information on how they would complete the work. Kevin explained the different sod options, gave me a detail quote for each area of the work, and the date when he would complete everything. No prepayment. During the sod installation, Kevin noticed that the sod was below the quality he expects, 1/2 of the sod was bad. He explained what the issue was and worked with the sod management company to replace the bad sod at no cost to me. That attention to detail and pride in his work is seldom seen. Sod is I stalled, looks awesome and neighbors are giving me complements. Highly recommend Kevin and his team!!

It was a terrible experience, I guess it was my fault because I went for someone who is A LOT cheaper than ALL other companies. I guess I sacrificed QUALITY with price. 10 DAYS after they laid my sod, and half of my sod is dead. When I complained about the quality of the sod on the first day Teddy claimed that this is normal and it just needs watering. I followed his watering instructions and everything he asked me to do, and yet the sod still dead. I brought it to his attention and he did nothing. and still hoping that he would at least come replace the 60 pieces of dead sod that he left behind. excuses excuses excuses.

Our yard was nothing but weeds. We hired D&T to re-sod the yard. I asked Daniel about addressing the weeds before laying the sod and was assured this would not be an issue. D&T used weed cutters to cut the weeds to the level of the soil. No weed killer or weed prevention was applied. They laid the sod on top of the cut weeds. Daniel told us we would be fine if we hire a company to treat the lawn as the sod takes hold. We did. The company explained to us this is NOT how the project should have gone. The weeds should have been completely destroyed and the soil tilled before laying new sod. Now our brand new investment in our home is completely ruined because all of the weeds are coming up through the sod. The money spent was completely wasted and now we are right back where we started.

They did a great job re-sodding our 2,500 sq ft yard. It was a big job, we had a large oak tree removed and it left the yard very uneven. They worked quickly leveling it and re-sodding in just 3 days. Would absolutely hire again!

Had them come out and do a sod replacement and mulching in front of my house. They did a great job! We had a delay in our project due to the rain from a storm and the delivery of sod. I appreciated the communication I receive during that time. The satisfaction I have pulling up to my house was worth the money spent.

Gene provided outstanding service on my sod installation. His price was very fair, and he completed the work exactly the way he had quoted it. He even went beyond what I expected by stopping by several times to make sure the new sod was taking proper rooting and was healthy. I wold highly recommend Enchanted Valley Lawn and Landscape for any landscaping needs. They are great.

Everything as promised. Lawn looks great. Crew worked diligently to get things completed as fast as possible. Now, let's hope the sod takes with proper watering. Ivan works along side his men, checks out the sprinklers and repairs if necessary. Would recommend!

Ironclad did an amazing job with our sod install. Bret worked with us on an entire plan, including irrigation and special drip emitters in our planters. He also worked with us because we wanted a special variety of St. Augustine, and did not hesitate to find it for us. Every other contractor we talked to just tried to convince us to use floratam. We had been waiting for the right time to install a beautiful yard and Ironclad delivered and then some. There are lots of companies who will come throw some sod down and leave, but if you want it done correctly and with excellent customer service and value, go with Ironclad.

Fantastic experience all around with the timeliness of the chat, booking the work and getting communication of what all we needed to do on our end to prep for sod removal and leveling our land. Hard working gentlemen performed the work in a timely, efficient and respectful way showing attention to detail and respect for our space. Will rehire in the future!

Teddy and his crew did an absolutely gorgeous job. They re-sodded but also pressure washed pool deck and added pavers as well as sealed all the pavers. They also hauled trash away and sealed with concrete holes we had in the backyard where dogs had tried to dig out. Highly recommend them! Very personable as well as knowledgeable.
