Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to sod your yard?

If you plan on sodding your yard, expect to pay between $250 and $1,250. You can get a better idea of your own cost by requesting free estimates from sodding professionals near you and calculating the square footage of your yard. Other factors will also affect your cost, including delivery prices, any prep work that needs to be done and additional labor costs.

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.

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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a landscaper or lawn care professional when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a landscaper or lawn care professional, you can take safety precautions on the worksite by not making any physical contact, keeping at least 6 feet between you and the pro(s) at all times and using digital payment platforms instead of cash or check.

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.

Did a very good job putting down sod and would use again.

They installed grass sod in nov 2018. Their attitude was great, however, their lack of experience and poor work quality is costing me thousands of dollars 7 months later. I have the following issues with the work they did (1) They did not properly level/grade the land before sod installation. The result is an extremely bumpy backyard/front yard and lots of uneven surfaces that cannot be fixed by topsoil dressing alone and it looks very ugly (2)They also left big gaps between sod squares (up to 3-4 inches wide), as a result the grass is dying around the edges and weeds are growing between the gaps. (3) they didn’t remove the weeds/old grass underneath and laid the sod on top of weed/old grass. 3 different landscapers have confirmed my worst fears, entire area needs to be cleared of grass, land needs to be leveled/graded and new sod needs to be installed all over again. That’s a very costly repair.

David is a straight up guy. Does top notch work, and he worked with me on doing two payments for the project. He is highly recommended. I just used him for lawn/sod work, and will be using him again for a small landscape project to blend in with the lawn.

We hired David to install sod at our home. He was prompt, efficient, communicative, and delivered a gorgeous product. We were so pleased with his work, we've hired him for multiple projects since the initial installation and will continue to do so! Highly recommended.

Due to extensive foundation and plumbing repairs my entire back lawn and portions of my front lawn were ruined. Most of the bids I received for sod replacement were budget busters. However, Xscaping submitted a budget friendly bid, which allowed room for me to add additional landscaping to the scope of the project. What started out as a simple goal of re-sodding turned into an overall refresh of the lawn, garden and pool areas. On a side note, as a homeowner it can be difficult to find trade professionals that you can build a relationship with for future repairs & improvements. Nicolas and his crew were friendly, helpful and highly skilled. I'm happy to say that I no longer worry about who to hire for future projects. Thanks Xscaping!
