Our Greenwich Lawn Installation Services

We take time to assess environmental conditions and soil features to determine the right time to lay sod. The best times for sod laying in Greenwich is during spring and autumn with Greenwich landscape excavation. These are cool seasons with good temperatures and occasional rain which makes it easy for sod to root. During these seasons, you can lay your sod anytime.

Our Sod Installation Process

To enhance sod growth, we ensure that the sod used is of the right grade, and see to it that there are no water hiding spots. As we irrigate, we take care to avoid any chances of water running into your house.  We follow the steps below.

  1. Taking lawn measurements
  2. Removing and killing grasses
  3. Soil preparation and grading
  4. Laying and rolling the lawn
  5. Watering, fertilizing and mowing

Can You Lay Sod on Your Existing Grass?

There are high chances that if you lay sod on existing grass, it will dry up, and not yield. Getting rid of existing soil is important but if you are not in a position to do it, you then should place soil on it, from which you will lay your sod.

Commonly Used Stones for Interior Design

Today, natural stone is many homebuilder’s favorite. Having been in use for years, natural stone is undeniably a versatile and dynamic product useful in traditional and contemporary building’s walls, floors, and countertops. We have plenty of finishes of this to choose from. The following stones can in a big way to complement your interior design

  • Marble: Has an exquisite pattern and makes it one of the best floor’s elegant decisions. Marble can survive weight for decades. However, it needs a high degree of maintenance
  • Limestone: Made of skeletal fragments of marine organisms like molluscs and coral. It is preferred due to its versatility, and ability to create a timeless classic look. When pure, limestone is almost white in color. The one used on buildings is produced in a variety of finished like gold, brown, pink, red, and black.
  • Brick: Inexpensive, strong, durable, and easy to clean. Requires maintenance over time, but not regularly. Can be rougher than wood or tiles, more so when walking on barefoot. Common for flooring and kitchen gardens.

Great service and exceeded expectations. Went above and beyond the agreed contract, maintained proper care and completed beautiful stone veneer on the front of my gas station. The landscaping and masonry work turned out to be tremendous and we couldn’t be happier. It was a pleasure to work with Fairfield County Excavation from start to finish. From the first meeting and dealings with the office, to the execution of the work and the final result ended in exactly what we were looking for. Thank you again for such a great service.
