Lawn Installation – What Grass Should You Use For Your Fairfield Lawn?

The weather patterns in Fairfield can be quite hard to predict, so we advise our customers to use grasses that can stand drought and moisture. We recommend:

  • Kentucky bluegrass
  • Creeping Red Fescue
  • Rough bluegrass
  • Zoysia Grass
  • Perennial Ryegrass

Which is the Best Time to Lay Sod in Fairfield?

The grass you intend to have and environmental factors will influence the time you lay your sod.

Sod installation is quite expensive and before laying it, it is advisable that you start by carefully tending the turf. The best times to lay sod in Fairfield is during spring and autumn because these are cool seasons characterized by low temperatures and occasional rain which make it easy for sod to take root. You can lay your sod at any time during these seasons.

If you lay your sod during summer, ensure you water it twice a day for a couple of weeks.

Can You Lay Sod on Your Existing Grass?

You should not lay sod on top of your grass before sufficient preparation. Sod needs to make direct contact with soil for it to take root, and existing grass will hinder this. In case you do not intend to get rid of the existing grass, you can place soil or dirt on it, and lay your sod on top of it.

Other things to do to ensure your sod thrives include ensuring your sod is of the right grade, and see to it that there are no water hiding spots.

Our sod installation can be summarized by five easy steps

  1. Taking lawn measurements

Our recommended Home Foundations are:

Concrete Slab Foundation: As the name suggests, a slab is formed using concrete blocks. Slabs range from 4 to 8 inches thick and are reinforced using drainage pipes and steel rods. When the slab is ready, we build a home directly on top of it.

Basement foundation: We build this with a concrete perimeter of pillars supporting the home building’s structure above the ground. We then dig basement foundations at least 8 feet deep above the building’s flooring.

Crawl Space Foundation: This is a three to four feet high foundation with concrete pillars around the perimeter for supporting the building above. We recommend these foundations in areas where the soil is hard to dig. These foundations are normally preferred for small structures.

Pier Foundation: We make Pier foundations using square pads of concrete located on strategic places on the home’s outer perimeter. We insert pads and secure them into the ground with steel rods or wood posts. We then connect the rods or posts to home for support.

What Does Our Fairfield Grading for Landscaping Entail?

Fairfield County Excavation does grading paying attention to utilities such as power, gas, water, sewerage disposal, and communication systems. Our experts are careful about the change of contours to support building integration with the site.

  • To accommodate new structures
  • Creating a foundation for the property
  • Landscape/ garden improvement
  • Correcting the surface drainage.
  • Overcoming erosion, landslide, and flood effects
  • Our Lawn site grading basics

We have skilled engineers and the best technology for site grading. On all our lawn grading services, we follow the following steps.

  1. Examining the existing conditions
  2. Identifying contour lines

  5. Calculating the slope
  6. Planning the setup.
