Which is the Best Sod to Lay on Your Newtown Lawn this Season?

We take time to evaluate soil features and environmental conditions for accurate results. Our recommended grasses to plant on your Newtown lawn include:

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

Again, remember that laying sod on existing grass is not a nice idea as it might not root and could all dry away. If you do not have time to take away that grass, you can add soil or dirt on it and apply sod there.

Did You Know?

The recommended time for sod laying in  Newton CT is during Spring and Autumn. During these times there are cool temperatures and occasional rain which will enable your sod root quickly.

We start by ensuring that sod is of the right grade and eliminating all chances of water hiding spots. Our sod installation process can be summarized in 5 steps.

Hardscape Design Essentials

Normally, we design the hardscape first to form the structure which the softscape fits into.  We do this in a couple of steps

  1. Geometry: Based on land features, we can adopt either the formal or naturalistic design approach. The formal approach puts emphasis on straight lines and symmetrical shapes while our naturalistic approach emphasizes asymmetrical shapes for achieving balanced and orderly overall design.
  2. Style: Our style options have much to do with materials used. The key to a good hardscape is choosing the style that suits your taste and preference. We brainstorm with our customers to identify the best designs for them.
  3. Design Mapping: We start by getting an accurate map for the property to be hardscaped. We draw hardscape features and outlines, linking them with a network of pathways.
  4. Path Layout: We put attention on path layouts since they are the arteries of any design. We route them along the landscape contours and install stairways where necessary.
