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.

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.

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.

Ivan was the only landscaping pro that gave me an honest quote from the beginning. Others first inflated the price and then only came down when confronted with his offer. He is very responsive and professional. From quote to the sod in my yard and complete was less than a week. Ivan and his crew did a wonderful job and even came back to make one small change the same day I inquired about it. He also offers a great warranty on the sod he installs.

Edgar and his team are hard workers and did an excellent job soding my yard. It was a large job and they put a huge effort to prep the soil and rake it to ensure the sod was properly installed. I highly recommend him

These guys were great. The owners of the company were the ones actually installing the sod. They took pride in their work and were 100% professional through the entire process. I plan to use them again for other landscaping needs.

I would highly recommend AR Landscaping. They did a great job landscaping our back yard (laying sod, tilling) and building a new patio. They are very transparent in their pricing and detailed. They were able to keep to their schedules and were able to accommodate our requests and vision for our backyard.

I would HIGHLY recommend Santos and his crew. They did such an amazing job laying sod in our large backyard and cutting trees. They were on time and done earlier than expected! They worked hard the entire day to transform our not so pretty yard into an oasis :). We will certainly be using them in the future!!! Thank you so much!!

Startex came to bid quickly, and did the work when planned. We delayed some for rain, but they finished as soon as they could. The work (Sod, planting trees, and installing flagstone pathway) was done well, and for a price that was reasonable. Victor is easy to communicate with and was flexible with some last minute changes I needed to make. I would recommend and would use them again.
